Neck injuries can result from car accidents, sports accidents, and falls. These injuries can range from a minor case of whiplash to a serious injury requiring some type of surgical procedure. Car accidents are commonly the most frequent cause of neck injuries due to the stretching and tearing of the ligaments and muscles as the head is snapped forward and back. In the worst cases involving neck injuries, you may suffer severe damage that can even involve the spinal cord. Damage to or severing of the spinal cord in the neck can lead paralysis.

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious neck injury due to the wrongdoing of another, you can pursue a personal injury claim seeking monetary damages.

Neck Injuries in Personal Injury Claims

Neck injuries can occur in all types of car accidents due to the impact sustained, especially when traveling at higher speeds. The most common type of accident, however, that results in neck injuries are caused by rear-end car accidents. Millions of these types of accidents occur every year. The cause of these accidents can vary but one of the leading causes is the fact that the driver simply was not paying attention to the road ahead and missed slowing or stopping traffic.

In the wake of a rear-end or any other kind of accident, you can suffer severe neck trauma. This can result in the following injuries:

  • Torn ligaments in the neck
  • Pinched nerve
  • Herniated disc which involves a torn disc that leaks the soft material inside
  • Fractured cervical spine

Even the slightest injury to the neck can create headaches, loss of motion, stiffness, pain, and spasms. The more severe the injury, the more intensive the medical treatment will be required, including invasive surgery in the worst cases. Any of these neck injuries can leave you debilitated, in pain, unable to work, and subject to various medical treatments and therapies that can wind up costing thousands of dollars.
