Representing the Rights of People Who Sustain Back Injuries in Preventable Accidents
Back injuries have the potential to leave victims with significant medical complications that can substantially affect their quality of life. The kinds of accidents that can cause back injuries are innumerable, and the resulting injuries can vary in severity from mild to debilitating. Injuries to the back can include muscle tears, injuries to the spinal cord or column, strains, and neurological damage, among others. In the most serious cases, back injury victims may lose mobility or sensation in the entire body below the point of injury.
Back injuries that are caused by the negligence of another person often give victims the right to sue to recover compensation for the losses they incur. The kinds of damages1 that are compensable under Missouri law include:
- past and future medical expenses
- lost income
- loss of quality of life
- as well as damages for physical and emotional pain and suffering.
