Can I Sue for Back Pain After a Car Accident?

Click below to share this on social media:

Back injuries are one of the most common types of car accident injuries. Countless victims experience sharp back pains that disrupt their ability to perform essential tasks. If you’re the victim of a car accident that was caused by someone else, you have the right to sue for your compensation. 

However, to have a successful lawsuit against the responsible party, you’ll need to prove that the other party caused your car accident. The process of verifying the fault of the other party isn’t complicated but can be a time-consuming process. With this in mind, you should acquire everything you need for your lawsuit as early as possible. 

Sometimes the impact of your back injury isn’t apparent until well after a car accident. For this reason, you should receive a medical examination immediately after your car accident. Medical tests serve as documentation of your damages and increase your chances of obtaining compensation.

You’ll also need to gather evidence that the other party is responsible for your car accident. Photographs, videos, and statements related to your car accident are useful when attempting to sue for your back pain injury

Medical Examination 

Before you sue the other party, you must always receive a medical examination after your car accident. To prove that your back injury is a direct result of your car accident, you should obtain a medical exam. Failure to receive a medical examination within a timely manner makes yourself discreditable in the eyes of insurance companies as well as the other party. 

For example, if someone strikes your car from behind, there is a high chance that you’ll experience whiplash. However, the symptoms of your whiplash may not display themselves until days, weeks, or even months after your initial accident. 

Obtaining a medical examination as soon as possible prevents the other party from suspecting that your whiplash symptoms were the result of another injury unrelated to your accident.

Gathering Evidence

Evidence that your car accident was the result of negligent actions by the other party is required to win your lawsuit. Your car accident evidence itself comes in many forms, and there are multiple ways to acquire valuable evidence that will prove the fault of the other party. For example, taking photographs and videos of your car accident are excellent forms of evidence. Obtaining footage of the damages to all vehicles is essential. Footage of your injuries, along with the actual scene of your accident, is another excellent form of evidence. 

Witness statements and police reports are also perfect forms of evidence that you should obtain following your accident. Gathering as much evidence as possible is always advised following your car accident. You can never have too much evidence, and each piece of evidence you collect will only strengthen your care.
