Back Injury Law
A back injury or damage to the neck can be caused by any number of injuries, including car accidents, sports injuries, slip and falls and even repetitive stress injuries from work. At Azevedo & Nelson, we see the effects of these injuries on our clients’ lives.
Neck And Back Damage
Because the back is made up of so many bones and major muscles, and is of such importance to the functioning of the entire body, even a minor injury to the back can have profound effects on every other system in the body. Disc damage, fractured vertebrae, and torn muscles can cause damage to muscles and nerves and affect mobility, control and senses.
A spinal cord injury can leave you with:
- Difficulty or inability to do normal activities such as walking, bending, sitting and reaching
- Difficulty or inability to lift
- Inability to drive
- Shooting pains, tingling or numbness in the extremities from muscle and nerve damage
- Chronic headaches or other chronic pain
- Need for rehabilitation, surgery or assistive devices
A neck injury or back injury can leave you with an inability to do your job, take care of your home and family, or do the same activities that you used to do. For active people, or people who pride themselves on being self-sufficient, this can be devastating emotionally and leave you with psychological difficulties such as depression and anxiety as well.
Our Toronto back injury lawyers can help you access benefits that will help pay for your losses, and determine whether you have grounds for damages as well.
Let us help you recover or adapt.
