Our backs are an integral part of our bodies, made up of a complex and remarkable anatomy of bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and nerves. Unfortunately, back injuries are amongst the most common injuries suffered by Ontario accident victims.
Oatley Vigmond is experienced at representing victims who have suffered a wide range of back injuries sustained in an accident. Common injuries include disc injuries such as herniated, slipped, or ruptured discs. Disc injuries occur when the spongy cushions that separate and protect the vertebrae from one another are damaged. Some victims, especially older adults, suffer compression fractures. These are tiny cracks in the bones of the spine which can cause the vertebrae to collapse and deform. Some accident victims suffer so much trauma to the spine that damage occurs to the fragile bundle of nerves within it contained in the spinal cord. These victims may be left with permanent paralysis to parts of their bodies.
No matter the type of back injury you sustain, it will most likely result in ongoing pain and restricted mobility. Because of how integral the back is to our bodies’ overall structure, mobility, and functioning, back injuries can progress to become a permanent disability or chronic source of pain. Back injuries can affect your ability to work, engage in recreational activities, and your activities of day-to-day living.
