A serious back injury sustained in a car accident can require extensive medical care. Depending upon the severity of the trauma, doctors may recommend rest, physical therapy, pain management or surgical intervention. During recovery, the victim is often unable to work, participate in household duties or provide care for other family members.

Our lawyers are highly experienced in managing ICBC claims for victims of back, neck and spine injuries. Injured people turn to us because we advocate strongly on their behalf for full and fair compensation for their serious injuries.
Full and Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
There are many types of back injuries, including herniated or bulging discs, muscle strains and sprains (also called whiplash) and other spinal trauma. Our lawyers have handled countless ICBC back injury claims — ranging from relatively straightforward injuries to the most complex cases.
Often, a back injury claim involves special medical treatment and/or services such as:
- Imaging services, including X-rays, CT scans and MRIs
- Physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment and massage therapy
- Active rehabilitation programs
We can help you access the medical treatment and services you need to speed your recovery. Compensation for all past and future medical expenses resulting from your back injury may also be available through ICBC. Compensation for back injuries may also include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, out-of-pocket expenses, past and future wage loss, and loss of earning capacity.
After a serious auto accident, you may believe it is best to call ICBC immediately. Before you do, contact Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP to ensure that your ICBC claim is handled effectively from the beginning. Our lawyers will help you fully assess your claim and complete the claims process for you.
