Types of Neck and Back Injuries
Your neck and back are two of the most crucial and vulnerable parts of your body, consisting of a complex system of nerves, muscles, soft tissue, cartilage and vertebrae. Depending on the severity of the damage, these injuries can cause pain, paralysis and even death.
Some of the most common back and neck injuries include:
- Compression fractures
- Pinched nerves
- Broken vertebrae
- Spinal cord injury
- Damaged trachea or larynx
- Slipped, ruptured or herniated disc
- Neck sprains and strains
Neck and back injuries typically require medications, ongoing therapy and possible surgery. The intense pain often associated with these injuries is likely to prevent you from working and earning your wages your family needs.
Our attorneys understand what a difficult time this is, and we are committed to helping you get the justice and compensation you deserve.
Whiplash occurs when your body is suddenly jolted back and forth with forceful intensity. This extreme force hyper-extends the bones in your lower neck and hyper-flexes your upper neck bones, damaging tend muscles and tendons.
A whiplash injury does not require much force; even slow-moving collisions can result in serious neck injury. Many times, people can suffer from whiplash in accidents that caused little or no damage to the vehicles involved.
Symptoms of whiplash range from aggravating discomfort to serious physical disabilities. Common whiplash symptoms include:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Jaw pain
- Shoulder and arm pain
- Vision problems
- Ringing in the ears
The symptoms listed above can diminish your quality of life and significantly impact your ability to perform common activities. This sudden combination of pain and suffering often leads to psychological issues such as depression, anxiety, anger and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
