Lower Back Pain: Who’s Liable?

According to the World Health Organization, over 600 million people live with lower back pain. In the United States, one study found that up to 28% of men and 31% of women had experienced recent lower back pain. 

In some cases, the cause of the lower back pain remains a mystery. In many others, however, lower back pain arises out of accidents caused by negligent or unlawful acts. 

Compensation for Lower Back Pain

If you are suffering from lower back pain, you can potentially get compensated for various losses, depending on the circumstances of your condition and its cause. 

Traffic Accidents

If your lower back pain has come on due to a car accident, you can seek compensation from a few different sources, depending on various factors. First, your injuries, at least initially, will likely be covered in part by either MedPay or personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. 

Both of these options are types of no-fault insurance coverage that pay 80% of your medical bills from a car accident regardless of liability. PIP also covers 60% of lost wages.

If your lower back pain is classified as a serious injury, you may be able to file a claim against the at-fault driver’s liability insurance policy and seek full damages. Full damages entitle you to:

  • Complete medical coverage 
  • Total wage replacement
  • Pain and suffering compensation
  • Compensation for loss of enjoyment of life

When gross negligence or intentional misconduct causes your back injury, punitive damages may also be on the table. 

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a particularly unfortunate occurrence. Medical professionals charged with caring for and treating the public are sometimes negligent or reckless and cause harm. In cases of lower back pain, professionals such as chiropractors and physical therapists may be held liable for injuries caused through medical negligence. 

However, they are not the only ones. Surgeons can also be held responsible for falling below accepted standards of surgical care during treatment. Doctors as well may face liability for acts of malpractice, such as failure to diagnose. 

Work Conditions and Accidents

Lower back pain can be caused by work conditions over time or a work injury. In both cases, injured workers may have a workers’ comp claim, depending on the seriousness of the injury. 

When the lower back pain is sustained as the result of an accident, a third party may be liable, which will allow the injured worker to seek more compensation than offered with workers’ comp.
