Neck And Back Injuries From Car Crashes

In an auto accident, the neck and back are very vulnerable to trauma. Because of the delicate nature of the spine and the often jarring motion of vehicle impact, neck and back pain after a car accident is a common experience for victims.

Additionally, the complexity of the spinal column leaves room for injury to soft tissue, nerves and vertebrae, or a combination of them all. Regardless of the types of injury, the muscles of the neck and back are affected, which can cause long-lasting pain and stiffness.

Were you injured in a car accident by a negligent driver, and did you experience neck and back pain as a result? If so, you may be entitled to compensation that can help alleviate the strain of medical bills, lost wages and prescription costs associated with your injury.

Simien & Simien, LLC, works on a contingency fee basis, so you owe us nothing unless we return a successful verdict or settlement for you.

We proudly offer 100 percent FREE case reviews, and we don't get paid unless we recover.

Types Of Neck Injuries

Pain in the cervical spine can manifest itself in different types of neck and back injuries. In some cases, victims may sustain injury to a single area, or a combination of injuries, including:

Neck sprains or strains

Soft tissue damage will typically cause a strain or a sprain in the neck. In the case of whiplash injuries, as an example, the muscles are overstretched from the motion of the crash, damaging the ligaments and tendons and causing soreness and stiffness.

Disk trauma

A ruptured or herniated disk will result if the force of the crash causes the disk to "slip" out of place between the vertebrae. Disks can slip from almost any area of the spine, but most commonly rupture in the lumbar spine, or lower back.

Acute injury to the spine

Typically causing bruising or swelling at the injury site, an acute injury to the spine is detected the moment it occurs. Unlike an injury like whiplash, the pain will likely be felt instantly, rather than take days to develop.

Spinal dislocation or fracture

Fractures and dislocations can occur individually or together. In a fracture, the bone will literally crack from the force of the impact; a dislocation takes place when the vertebrae go out of alignment; a fracture dislocation is a combination of the two.
