Types of Back and Neck Injuries
Your back and neck are two of the most important and vulnerable parts of your body, comprising an intricate system of soft tissue, cartilage, vertebrae, muscles and nerves. Depending on the severity of the damage, a back or neck injury can result in pain, stiffness, paralysis an even death.
Some of the most common neck and back injuries include:
- Spinal cord injury
- Neck strains and sprains
- Herniated, ruptured or slipped disc
- Damaged trachea or larynx
- Broken vertebrae
- Pinched nerves
- Compression fractures
Back and neck injuries usually require medications, physical therapy and even surgery. You can typically expect to suffer a significant amount of pain and may need to take long periods away from work. Mounting medical bills and lost earnings can put an incredible strain on your emotional well-being and the financial security of your family. Our back and neck injury lawyers can help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.
Whiplash injuries result in nearly $30 billion in damages every year in the United States. This estimate includes lost earnings, medical treatment and long term care.
Whiplash is caused by your body being suddenly jolted forward or backward with violent intensity. The severe force hyperextends the lower neck bones and hyper-flexes the bones in your upper neck. This damages tender muscles and tendons.
It doesn't require much force to induce a whiplash injury. Even slow-moving accidents can cause damage to the neck. Often times, whiplash symptoms emerge from wrecks where there was little or no damage to the vehicles involved.
Whiplash symptoms range from frustrating pain to severe physical disabilities. Common whiplash symptoms include:
- Ringing in the ears
- Vision problems
- Arm and shoulder pain
- Jaw pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
These symptoms can impair your ability to perform common activities and diminish your quality of life. This unfortunate combination of pain, frustration and suffering often leads to deeper psychological issues such as anger, anxiety, depression and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
