Low Back Soft Tissue Injury Settlement

Outcome: Undisclosed Settlement

Our client, a man in his mid 50s who worked in the construction trades suffered a low back injury in a motor vehicle crash. Medical studies revealed no fracture or disc injuries but he did sustain soft tissue damage to his muscles and ligaments and connective tissue. He had no prior history of low back pain. Treatment included physical therapy and injections. His doctor determined that he had permanent pain and restrictions, including lifting restrictions. This affected his ability to work in the construction trades, resulting in a substantial economic loss.
