Back Pain Can Have Many Causes
An accident can cause spine or vertebral fractures due to the sudden impact to your back. It may also cause sprains or strains, which are damage to the ligaments, muscles, or tendons connected to the spine and its joints. It may even tear the muscles or tendons in your lower back, causing spasms.
Check with your doctor to determine the true cause of your back pain. Be sure to mention your accident. If he or she rules out other potential explanations for your back pain, it may be time to speak to an attorney.
If you feel that your accident may have caused your back pain, contact Bressman Law as soon as possible. We can take your case to court and help you sue for damages.

Signs of Back Pain or Back Injuries To Watch Out For
According to the Mayo Clinic, some common symptoms of back problems are:
- Muscle ache
- Shooting pain
- Pain that spreads down your leg
- Pain that intensifies upon bending, lifting, standing, or walking
- Pain that gets better with reclining
Left untreated, serious back pain can extend down one or both legs, can cause numbness or tingling in the legs, or even trigger sudden weight loss. In addition to causing serious symptoms, it can leave you unable to work.
Another common problem after a car accident is a herniated disc. The symptoms of a herniated disc range from weak muscles around the disc to sharp pain or tingling and numbness in the limbs.
Serious trauma to the spine can also cause vertebral fractures. These usually result in significant pain that worsens with movement. They may also cause tingling or numbness, and even loss of bladder control in worst-case scenarios.
If you notice any of these symptoms after an accident, see a doctor immediately. Then see how a Powell back pain lawyer at Bressman Law can help you. We have dealt with many clients who, like you, suffered injuries due to someone else’s mistakes or negligence.

Back Pain Can Sneak Up On You
After an accident, it is common for back pain to set in later, surprising people who thought they suffered no injuries from the accident. When a car is rear-ended, whiplash is a common result for the driver of the car in front. Whiplash is a cervical spine injury caused by damage to the tissues in the neck. It often takes a few days to manifest.
For this reason, it is important to get medical attention. This will help you link your injuries to the accident for eventual legal action on the case.
Know also that you are not alone. The lifetime prevalence of back pain in the U.S. is about 80%, according to the Cleveland Clinic. The highest rate is among people aged 45 to 64, but back pain can affect people of all ages.
If you are experiencing any of these types of pain from a car accident, you may be eligible to recover compensation. Get help from the Powell back pain lawyers at Bressman Law. We know how to handle personal injury cases like yours.
Back Injuries Can Be Costly
Back injuries can cost you dearly. The medical bills alone can run into the thousands of dollars. Then there is the potential loss of income and benefits, not to mention the personal distress incurred.
If your doctor prescribes bed rest, you may be out of commission for a while and unable to do your job. If you are incapacitated by the pain of your injury, you may likewise be forced to give up your work for a period of time. Back injuries can even cause permanent disability.

However, you want to act quickly because there is a statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits in Ohio — see the Ohio Revised Code § 2305.10. You will need to file your lawsuit within two years of when your accident happened. If you attempt to file after two years, your case may be thrown out in court.
