Woonsocket, Rhode Island Rear End Accident Results in Client’s Severe Back Injuries

One day, like any other, our client was driving in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. She was traveling east on Clinton Street, while the at-fault driver was driving behind her in the same direction. As rear end car accidents go, the at-fault driver failed to stop when our client came to a stop, thereby crashing directly into the back of her vehicle!

This caused our client to hit her steering wheel at the moment of impact. When she exited her vehicle, she immediately felt lower back pain and numbness down her right side.

In this case, our client felt immediate pain, numbness, and tingling in her back and right side/leg. Experiencing immediate pain after an accident is often a sign of significant injury. However, oftentimes our clients experience delayed serious injuries as well. In either instance, it is important that you seek medical assistance. Questions about your injuries after a car accident?

At the scene of the accident, Woonsocket Fire Department noted that our client was primarily concerned with the immediate lower back pain she felt. They also decided to place our client in a cervical collar (neck brace) for her safety. Woonsocket Fire Department then transported our client to Rhode Island Hospital where doctors immediately performed X-rays, a CT scan, and an MRI.

Client’s Full-Body Pain After Her Fender Bender Accident

At the hospital, medical professionals worked with our client to establish where her pain was and how she felt. She told doctors that her legs “feel like they’re not there” and that she has shooting pain down her neck, tingling in her back, headaches, and chest pain.

Ultimately, our client’s doctor at the Rhode Island Spine Institute recommended that our client undergo a selective nerve root blocker (SNRB) to help ease her pain and fine tune her treatment. After the accident, our client reported that her right-side lower back pain has prevented her from living her life to the fullest. She struggles to complete daily tasks and will likely need to return for physical therapy in a clinical setting.

Our back pain clients often start out by undergoing X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs to pinpoint and examine back injuries. After that, doctors may suggest physical therapy, chiropractor intervention, epidural injections, trigger point injections, SNRB, nerve ablation procedures, etc. These treatments are often necessary to help you regain quality of life.

What Should I Do After Sustaining a Back Pain Personal Injury?

As noted, experiencing back pain after a car accident is common. However, just because back pain is common doesn’t mean that insurance companies will compensate you for your injuries without a fight.

After a motorcycle accident, make sure to seek medical attention immediately. This is important to increase your chances of making a full recovery. Keep in mind that injuries often exacerbate after the initial impact. Some injuries, like whiplash, may take hours, days, or even weeks to reach its full impact. Not only will seeing a doctor right away help you heal, it will help your personal injury attorney build a stronger case on your behalf.

Once you are safe, it is best to call a skilled and local back pain personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. This is because personal injury attorneys, like us a Bottaro Injury Lawyers, know how to begin the claim process, build a strong case on your behalf, and help you realize the financial compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, property damage, etc.

As a result of this fender bender accident, our client will need to continuously monitor her injuries and possibly undergo a nerve block surgical intervention. Luckily, we were able to help our client obtain a $100,000.00 settlement from her and the at-fault driver’s insurance policies to take care of her medical expenses and more!
