Pearland Neck and Back Injury Attorney
Car accidents and car wrecks often damage more than just your car; in many cases, your body is affected in some way. Two of the most common injuries resulting from car accidents are neck and back injuries. Such injuries can range from mere nuisances—like soreness or stiffness—to severe, long-lasting pain, limited range of motion, and numbness that could prevent you from working or enjoying life as you once did.
Whiplash is an injury caused by the overextension of the neck as the head quickly snaps forward and back. Depending on the degree of severity, a whiplash injury may range from slight pain and stiffness to limited range of motion, dislocation, and even spinal cord injury. The medical bills and rehabilitation costs from suffering a whiplash injury can be enormous, and you deserve compensation from the person and any companies responsible for your injuries.
Lower Back Injuries
Lower back injuries occur when muscles are overstretched or torn, or when the spine becomes overly stressed. An auto collision or truck wreck can give the necessary direct, forceful, vertical pressure on the lower back muscles and lumbar (lower) discs to cause a hernia or lower back strain. Herniated discs may be difficult to diagnose since there may not be much pain; however, a severe case may result in paralysis, muscular weakness, numbness, or sciatica. Since lower back pain may also be an indication of a more serious spinal cord injury, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as you experience any pain. The continuous pain related to lower back injuries could prevent you from working or living a normal, pain-free life.
The pain of injuries, especially back and neck injuries, suffered during an accident may not manifest until days or weeks later. For this reason, it is important to seek immediate medical attention to determine the extent of your injuries, regardless of whether you feel pain or not. This will start a paper trail documenting any injuries you may have and show their relationship to the accident.
