Facet Joint Injuries in Car Accidents

Colorado Springs Car Accident Lawyer – Call (719) 359-9000

Most vertebrae of the spinal column are inch-thick discs that have bony protrusions from the sides and back. These protrusions connect the vertebrae to each other at relatively fixed points of cartilage known as “facet joints,” which will flex slightly as the back is extended. In the event that a person’s spine should be struck by great force, such as in a car accident, these facet joints can become inflamed or be pushed out of alignment, resulting in disabling back or neck pain. At the Law Firm of Ted Bills, our highly-trained Colorado Springs car accident attorney has an extensive record of success representing the rights of injured clients and can help you pursue maximum financial recovery for your facet joint injury claim.

Symptoms of Facet Joint Injuries

Facet joint injuries are often the result of whiplash caused by traffic collisions, though they can also be caused by similar impacts suffered in contact sports. Since the facet joints provide roughly 20 percent of twisting stability of the low back and neck, any sort of damage to these joints can have a devastating effect on the nearby muscles, harming posture and resulting in a crooked or tilted appearance.

You may have suffered a facet joint injury if you have been involved in an accident and now experience the following symptoms:

  • Sudden lumbar or cervical pain
  • Muscle spasms and fatigue
  • Pain turning head or twisting back
  • Tenderness at the site of inflamed joints
  • Reduced mobility due to lack of spinal flexibility
  • Worsened pain when leaning backward

Physical therapy or chiropractic care are often required to help realign the spine, though serious facet joint injuries may require expensive surgeries to be treated. Since facet joint injury pain is often unpredictable in both timing and degree, many injured victims are wrongly accused of feigning their symptoms by insurance adjusters. Our firm’s skilled advocate can protect your rights and fight to ensure you have access to the financial resources you need for your recovery.
