Injuries to the vertebrae or spinal cord (the bundle of nerves that connect the brain to the rest of the body) are some of the most serious consequences of automotive accidents. These injuries can cause lifelong pain, changes in strength and sensation, and sometimes paralysis.
Because the spine runs from the coccyx (tailbone) all the way up to the cervical vertebrae at the base of the skull, there is a significant chance of injury in many types of automotive accidents. Damage to the head, neck, back, or rear can all lead to spinal injury.
Spinal Injury Symptoms
- Back or neck pain
- Numbness and tingling
- Loss of movement
- Pain in the extremities
- Muscle spasms
- Impaired breathing
Spinal injuries are not always apparent immediately following an accident. Symptoms may begin days or weeks later, or might be masked by other injuries.
Without the right diagnosis, victims of spinal injuries may suffer unnecessary complications and lose out on fair compensation.
