Attention Maryland Auto Accident Victims: A Back Injury Can Hurt Your Finances

Personal Injury Attorney MarylandAttention Maryland Auto Accident Victims: A Back Injury Can Hurt Your Finances

After an automobile accident, calling insurance companies, witnesses, friends, and family can frustrate anybody. The last thing a person needs to worry about is how a back injury can create a financial burden. As a result, victims of auto collisions must learn about the consequences of such serious injuries on the ability to take care of themselves and loved ones.

Knowing Your Rights Can Help You Navigate the Recovery Process

At Alpert Schreyer, we deal with many automobile accident cases involving back injuries. We’ve found that victims can recover out-of-pocket expenses such as doctor visits, medical procedures, lost wages, mental anguish, physical pain, inconvenience, and other intangible harms and losses that accidents caused. This means that rear-end collisions can entitle victims to thousands of dollars or more simply because of the pain and inconvenience wreaked upon their personal and professional lives. Accident victims may need to deal with the loss of a job, healthcare benefits, custody rights to children, and motivation, among countless other psychological and emotional problems like depression.

Back Injuries Rank as Most Serious Injuries from Auto Accidents

Along with damage to the knee and hip, back injuries damage a person’s ability to maintain a healthy posture. Without a healthy posture, sitting in chairs or standing for prolonged periods of time can inflict pain, especially when a job demands it. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, these injuries correlate to restraint systems used in cars, the speeds of automobiles during collisions, and individual susceptibilities to injury. In addition, the United States National Library of Medicine reports that sprains and strains, herniated disks, and fractured vertebrae are commonly associated with jolts such as car accidents may cause.

Compensation for Automobile Accident Injuries Have Limits

While Maryland courts may award damages for interference to earning capacities caused by back injuries in car accidents, not all cases result in high payouts. Maryland caps noneconomic damages at about $800,000. As a result, anyone injured in an accident must retain an attorney familiar with personal injury law who can maximize the value of a claim.
