Back Injury & Arm Injury Cases
Road accidents can cause many different sorts of injuries. One of the most common is an injury to arms. Arm injuries that involve muscle strain, crush injuries, fractures, nerve injuries or other serious problems can seriously affect quality of life and the ability to work.
Back injuries are common and the complexity of the spine and the muscles that surround it mean that the consequences can be severe. Back injuries can be life limiting and can occur as a result of an accident at work, such as lifting heavy objects or a fall, car accidents, sporting accidents or an assault.
Problems Caused by Back and Arm Injuries
Injuries to the arms or the back can be temporary or permanent and can include the following:
• Chronic or long term pain
• Full or partial paralysis
• Problems with walking or carrying out daily activities
• Muscle aches or strains, or spasmodic pain
• Fractures of the bones of the arm or the vertebrae
• Herniated discs
• Loss of function
