If I Was In An Accident, How Do I Know If I Have Back Injuries?
After an accident, it’s important to seek medical help. If you have back pain, your doctor may recommend diagnostic tests to determine whether you have back injuries. Many tests can be used to identify back injuries, including X-rays, CT scans, MRIs and EMGs.
If the doctor identifies a back injury, it’s important to contact a Los Angeles accident attorney. Your attorney can help you identify the best way to document your injuries, pain and treatment plan. The insurance company may use that information to determine your compensation package.
Will I Recover From My Back Injury?
After a back injury has been identified and diagnosed, additional treatment options may be necessary. To help ensure your range of motion is not permanently limited, a doctor may recommend physical therapy or rehabilitative therapy, pain medication, short-term neck braces, steroid injections or surgery.
After you receive a treatment plan from your doctor, it’s important to complete the recommended treatment. If you fail to complete your treatment, the insurance company may try to argue that you are healthier than you claim or that you were not as seriously injured as you reported. Following the doctor’s orders can help ensure you recover fully and can assist in making sure you receive the compensation you need.
