Neck and Back Injuries
The neck and back are some of the most common injuries in car wrecks. For nothing else then they are the most delicate part of our bodies which we use every moment of every day. Neck and back pain can be caused by the slightest collisions and persist for the rest of your life. It's also not uncommon to have severe neck and back pain that does not being until days after an accident. What is most important is that you get the treatment you need to get back into the best health possible. For some, this is simply over the counter medicine but for others, it may mean surgery and years of physical therapy or chiropractors.
Injuries caused by accidents
Whiplash is the most common neck and back injury after an accident. The Mayo Clinic describes whiplash "as neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip." They note that it is common especially in rear-end accidents. Whiplash can cause lasting pain that requires multiple rounds of physical therapy to recover. Whiplash can cause pain, limited motion, headaches, fatigue, and dizziness. As is true in all car accidents if you have whiplash and it was another driver's fault you are entitled to compensation for any of these injuries and the expenses that result.
Severe neck and back injuries
In the most extreme cases, neck and back injuries can leave individuals paralyzed either partially or fully. Any paralyzation is a life-altering event. Most importantly get the care you need, but as soon as possible contact an attorney who can discuss your rights and what you may be able to be compensated for. If you wait you may lose the ability to recover anything at all.
