Neck Injury Lawyer
Neck injury from a car accident
One of the most common car accident injuries is a neck injury, the most typical example being whiplash. Whiplash tends to damage joints or discs, which in turn irritate nerve roots or possibly the spinal cord.
Depending on the extent of your neck injury, symptoms can include pain, numbness or tingling down the arm, stiffness, dizziness or disturbed sleep.
Neck injuries can sometimes be accompanied by a herniated disc, cervical dislocation, neck fracture or even spinal cord injury. The pain can last for a short term, or for a long term, and for some people, the painful effects of neck injuries can last indefinitely.
Symptoms may be delayed by 24 to 48 hours following the accident.
Other symptoms may include:
- Irritability, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating
- Stiffness / decreased range of motion in the neck
- Pain in the back of the neck that increases with movement
- Pain on the sides of the neck
- Muscle spasms or pain in the upper regions of the shoulders and back
