Thoracic Spine Fracture
One of the most common spinal fractures occurs in the thoracic spine or mid-back area of the spine. Depending on the severity of the thoracic fracture, the resulting pain and damage can range from mild to severe. Often, these fractures are caused by trauma from car accidents, fall accidents and other accidents with high levels of trauma. Victims of accidents that have resulted in serious fractures deserve to be compensated properly for their losses.
