Car accidents can be life-changing events. On top of the financial impact of having to pay for potential repairs, you also have to suffer the stress of making payments for expensive medical care to heal your body. Even so, there’s no guaranteeing your body will feel right again even after seemingly minor accidents. This is too often the case when people suffer neck injuries as a result of a car crash.

While the neck is vital to the body’s functions, it’s also relatively fragile. As such, the neck can be seriously damaged in an otherwise minor crash. Neck injuries are often caused by damage to the region’s soft tissues, making them especially tricky to diagnose because they don’t always appear immediately following an accident. Some neck injuries take months to develop in severity to the point that they interfere with your life, but if you don’t take the proper steps to pursue your legal interests, you could miss out on valuable compensation you need to get your life back on track. That’s why you need to know what the symptoms of neck injuries are and what you can do to improve your legal position following a car accident.

Neck Injuries From A Car Accident

There are numerous serious neck related injuries that are common after a car crash, including:

  • Muscle spasms: caused by ligaments around the neck vertebrae being strained
  • Whiplash: caused by a sudden jolting motion that tears the ligaments in the neck
  • Brain injuries: damage to the neck can injure the blood vessels and prevent blood from reaching the brain normally
  • Vocal cord paralysis: caused by an impact to the voicebox crushing or bruising the structures there, difficult to treat and can be permanent if not quickly addressed
  • Paresthesia: caused by disks in the neck putting pressure on a nerve, symptoms include burning and tingling sensations on the skin

Symptoms of Neck Injuries

Neck injuries can be especially troublesome because they’re not always immediately apparent. To make matters worse, if not immediately treated they can develop into chronic concerns, causing pain, soreness, and other problems that impact your ability to lead your life normally. The complicated nature of the neck structures that could potentially be damaged and their relation to motor ability also mean they can impact your life financial too. On top of the wages you miss out on because of an inability to work you may also have to contend with massive medical bills for pain management, physical therapy, and other long-term health needs.

You want to get treatment for a potential neck injury as soon as you notice a problem in order to best improve your odds of recovery. Some symptoms you might notice include:

  • Headaches
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Nausea

  • Blurring of vision
  • Tingling or numbness in shoulders/arms
