Pennsylvania residents like you who have been involved in accidents know that the journey to recovery isn’t over after the crash is done. Navitsky, Olson & Wisneski, LLP, are here to help you through the tumultuous struggle that can follow your involvement in a wreck. Today, we’ll focus on handling back pain that is a result of an accident.
Chronic back and neck pain after an accident is actually very common. This is especially true if you’ve suffered from whiplash, which can contribute to pinched nerves and even slipped discs in your spine. Back and neck pain may not seem as immediately dangerous as other side-effects of crashes. However, they can be persistent and affect every area of your life.
Back pain that lasts indefinitely can, for example, interfere with your ability to complete your job up to your former standards. This is especially true if you have a job that requires manual labor like lifting or carrying heavy items. You may need to sit out on doctor’s orders, as it could interfere with your physical therapy and recovery. However, not being able to do your job can result in loss of funds and other issues.

The road to recovery can be a difficult one, so having knowledge and an experienced attorney on your side can be a big help.
