How Neck and Back Injuries in Houston Occur

Your neck and back are all part of your spine, which is a column of bones running from your skull to your pelvis called vertebrae. In the human spine, there are 24 "articulating" vertebrae, meaning they are joints and can move, and nine fused vertebrae at the bottom that cannot move. Each vertebrae is separated by a an intervertebral disc, which are made of cartilage and allow the vertebrae to move. These bones surround a tube of bundled nerves called the spinal cord that connects all parts of your body to your brain. Nerves convey messages to and from your brain. The spinal cord is how your brain tells your hand to pick up the cup of coffee on your desk, and how your foot tells your brain that you just stepped on a tack.

Because the spine is so important, any injury to it has significant implications and can be catastrophic. Even a minor injury to the neck can cause a lifetime of headaches and an inability to rotate your head. Worse injures to your neck and back can cause disability and difficulty moving around, including paralysis.

Houston Incidents That Can Lead to Neck and Back Injuries

Any type of injury that badly twist the spine, bend the spine, sever the nerves or shatter any part of your neck or back can lead to neck or back injuries. These could include:

However the injury happened, a Houston personal injury lawyer can help you prove that another person's negligence led to your accident and help you recover the damages available.

Damages Available in Houston Neck and Back Injuries

There are two different types of damages available: exemplary damages and compensatory damages. Exemplary damages, often called "punitive damages," are for when where is gross negligence or actual malice. These are rare, but may be available depending on the circumstances of your case.

Compensatory damages are meant to compensate you for what you've lost as a result of your injury. There are two types of compensatory damages:

  • Economic damage are measurable, concrete damages like the hospital and physical therapy bills you incur as a result of your injury, the wages you lost from missing work, and the wages you will no longer be able to earn because your are disabled.
  • Non-economic damages are the less tangible damages you've suffered, like pain and suffering and mental anguish.
