These back injuries can have myriad effects, ranging from chronic pain and loss of mobility and function. Treatment for such injuries is often extensive, long-lasting, and incredibly costly. The good news is that, if someone else was responsible for the accident that caused your back injuries, you could be entitled to compensation for your damages.
