Your back is a major part of your body that supports your neck and head, as well as facilitates most of your motions. Without a strong back, it can be difficult to lift even small items, walk, engage in basic tasks, or even stand up. Back injury victims know that the slightest movement can cause severe pain, which usually deters people from moving around at all.
Back injuries can also take a long time to heal. Extensive rehabilitative therapy may be necessary, and you may have to refrain from many of your usual activities. You may even be on bed rest—or couch rest—for days or weeks so you do not risk worsening your condition. Even with the right treatment, back injuries can be chronic, and it is all too easy to re-injure your back once you have done it once.
At the Law Office of William W. Hurst, we know how seriously a back injury can affect all aspects of your life. In many cases, another party was at fault for your back injury, and that party should be accountable for your injuries and losses. Please contact our office to discuss your legal options with an experienced Indianapolis back injury lawyer today.

Additionally, having a specific diagnosis connected to your accident will help if you later choose to file an insurance or legal claim.
A back injury can happen in many situations and usually when you least expect it. The following are some common causes of accidental back injuries.
