Examples of Neck and Back Injuries
An accident victim can sustain one or more back injuries in an accident. While there are many types of back and neck injuries, there are some that are common in personal injury claims:
Whiplash is a common neck injury in car accidents and falls. The soft tissues of the neck are damaged during the collision or the fall. Traumatic cases of whiplash can result in chronic pain and long-term complications.
Fractured or broken vertebrae in the neck or back can result in chronic pain, limited range of motion, and spinal cord injuries. Common fractures in the neck and back include rotation, extension, compression, and flexion spinal fractures.
Spinal cord injuries can result in partial or total paralysis. A person could lose sensation or movement in various parts of the body, as well as control over bodily functions.
Herniated discs are another common back and neck injury caused by trauma and accidents. The discs may leak when they become damaged, which can cause severe pain. The pain can be debilitating and long-term.
Spinal stenosis occurs when the spinal column narrows because the bones in the back or neck are fractured or become dislocated. The pressure on the spinal nerves can cause severe pain.
Prompt medical attention is the best way to prevent a back or neck injury from becoming worse. Seeking immediate medical attention after an accident also helps to document the neck and back injury for a personal injury claim. Delays in treatment can be used against you to undervalue or deny your injury claim.
