South Carolina Truck Accident Back Injury Attorneys
Being involved in a serious South Carolina truck accident can result in a wide range of serious injuries. Among the most common types of injuries, however, are back injuries. Depending on the type and extent of the injury, a spine injury can change the course of an accident victim’s life. Back injuries often result in limited mobility, lifelong pain and potentially paralysis.
At the Steinberg Law Firm, we represent clients who have been seriously injured in semi-truck accidents, helping them recover fair compensation for what they have been through. Unlike other law firms that pick and choose only the cases with the highest potential payouts, we pride ourselves in helping as many people as we can get their life back on track after a serious accident.
Types of Spinal Injuries
The back is made up of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and other tissue, all of which can be damaged in a truck accident. While many spine injuries heal, the seriousness of the symptoms an accident victim experience depend on the type of damage caused to the back. For example, the following are common types of back injuries in South Carolina truck accidents:
- Compression fractures: A compression fracture is a small crack on one or more vertebra. Compression fractures can interfere with breathing and often result in persistent, excruciating pain.
- Vertebrae fractures: The vertebra, or spinal bones, can break if enough pressure is applied to them in a truck accident. Often, a fractured vertebra can pinch a spinal nerve, or even permanently damage the nerve, potentially resulting in paralysis.
- Herniated discs: A disc refers to the soft, cushion-like tissue that rests between each vertebra. When excessive for is applied to the spine, these discs can break, rupture or bulge. Disc injuries are extremely painful and often require long-term treatment.
- Back strains: A back strain is an injury to the muscles or tendons in the back. Often, a strain occurs as the result of a twisted, torn or pulled muscle or tendon.
- Back sprains: Back sprains, while similar in name to strains, are different in that a sprain refers to the stretching or tearing of a ligament. A ligament is a tough fibrous band that connects two or more bones and prevents the joint from overextending.
Back injuries are extremely common in South Carolina truck accidents. Accident victims who have sustained a serious spinal injury are encouraged to reach out to a dedicated injury lawyer to discuss their case.
