Symptoms of Compression Fractures

Compression fractures can take weeks, if not months, to fully heal, and in severe cases, can cause chronic pain in a person’s lumbar spine, thoracic spine, and neck depending on where the injury occurred. If you suffered a compression fracture after a car accident in Missouri, you could be eligible to recover compensation. Common symptoms of a compression fracture caused by severe trauma include:

  • Severe mid or lower back pain
  • Shooting pains when bending over or walking
  • Difficulty bending over and laying down or sitting for extended periods
  • Limited walking ability
  • Chronic neck, shoulder, or back pain

Compression fracture symptoms can often be delayed, much like whiplash and other common car crash injuries. After an accident, it’s essential to seek prompt attention from a medical professional and consult an experienced attorney about your case to determine your right to compensation.

Compression Fracture Lawsuits in Missouri

Compression fractures primarily affect the lumbar area of the spinal cord, which is associated with various functions of the body, such as mobility, coordination, urination, bowel movements, and other functions related to the lower half of the body.

If you have sudden, unexplained pains, or other concerning symptoms after an accident, you need to get examined by a doctor and receive a diagnosis of your injuries. Compression fractures are typically diagnosed via x-rays, CT scans, and other methods of visual medical devices. In addition to seeking medical attention, it’s essential after an accident to call the police to protect available evidence from the scene of the crash; some evidence, such as road debris and witnesses to the accident quickly deteriorate or are unattainable if not collected right away.

Medical and police reports are definite proof that your back injuries are related to the accident, can serve as evidence that the other party is at-fault in the crash, and is often the proof required to obtain full damages for a compression fracture lawsuit in St. Louis.
