What Are My Back and Neck Injuries Worth?

Sudden impacts can bring serious injuries - even if you don't feel them right away.
What Are My Back and Neck Injuries Worth?

Back and neck injuries are very common after a car accident. Rear-end collisions are especially bad for injuries along the spinal column. The location and direction of the force of impact can suddenly (and violently) twist your back or neck in a direction it was never meant to twist.

The worst part is that you might not even notice these injuries right away. Your body is pumped full of adrenaline right after an accident, which makes it less likely for you to notice the pain of a back injury. And if you don’t feel any pain, you’re less likely to get yourself checked out by a doctor until something really starts hurting.

That’s a big mistake. Neglected injuries often become serious, chronic injuries. And you might not appreciate just how much persistent back pain can affect your quality of life - until it affects yours.

Honestly, we can’t stress this enough. See a doctor after your car accident, as soon as you can.

What Neck and Back Injuries Can You Expect After An Accident?

Neck sprains and strains

Commonly referred to as "whiplash," neck sprains and strains are incredibly common in people who've been in car accidents.

Neck sprains occur when the ligaments in your neck stretch or tear (car accidents generate more than enough force to do this). However, when you experience a neck strain, it’s your neck muscles that have stretched and torn, not your ligaments. As a practical matter, that’s often a distinction without a difference - either type of injury can cause severe pain and discomfort, including:

Pinched nerves

Another common accident-related injury is cervical radiculopathy, which is more commonly known as "pinched nerves." You’re more likely to suffer a pinched nerve if you’ve also suffered a herniated disc in your car accident. That’s because bone spurs or fragments from the herniated disc can “pinch” the nerve and cause problems for you.

Pinched nerve symptoms include:

Other Common Types of Back Injuries

The human back is a fragile and mysterious thing, and car accidents tend to focus a lot of force and energy onto them. Whiplash and pinched nerves are only some of the myriad back injuries a car accident victim may have to endure. Some of the others include:

Contact a Personal Injury Attorney in Clearwater and Get the Justice You Deserve.

Back and neck injuries can be tricky. They often don’t show up on X-rays, and doctors frequently have to rely on their own judgment and the word of the patient during diagnosis. Insurance companies exploit that gray area to the fullest. They’ll use the elusive nature of back injuries as evidence that you're not really injured at all, and therefore are owed nothing for your pain, suffering and medical expenses.
