Common Causes of Neck Injuries

Neck injuries often result from traumatic experiences, including:

  • Car, truck, or other vehicle accidents
  • Rear-end accidents
  • T-bone accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Work injuries
  • Slips/falls
  • Sports injuries

The severity of a neck injury depends on various factors, such as the type of accident, vehicle speed, stationary vs. moving vehicles, and many others. Regardless of the injury mechanism, head and neck trauma can lead to a harmful combination of forces affecting muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and the brain.

Common Types of Neck Injuries

In accidents, individuals may suffer from several common neck injuries, such as:

  • Whiplash, or Cervical Acceleration-Deceleration syndrome (CAD)
  • Ligament Injury
  • Muscle sprain or strain
  • Nerve Damage

Whiplash, caused by sudden impact from the front, back, or side of another vehicle, can result in overstretching of muscles and sprained joints, leading to significant neck pain. Moreover, the pain may radiate to other areas due to damage to delicate ligaments and nerves extending from the neck to the arms, hands, head, and upper torso.

Common Types of Back Injuries

Back injuries can cause joint, muscle, and nerve damage. Nerves from the back extend to the groin, legs, feet, and ankles. Damage to these nerves often causes pain, numbness, tingling, or altered sensations. Other lower back injuries may include herniated discs, spinal joint and ligament injuries, and in extreme cases, fractures or spinal cord injuries leading to permanent damage.

Head and Brain Trauma

In addition to the described pain patterns, traumatic incidents can result in head or traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Such injuries typically occur when sudden, unexpected motion jostles the brain inside the skull, causing delicate brain tissue bruising. Post-Concussive Syndrome (PCS) and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) are common conditions resulting from this type of trauma.

The negative consequences of an accident leading to spine or neck injuries can significantly impact a victim’s life for years. If you were injured in an accident, do not hesitate to contact our experienced spine and neck attorneys in Denver, CO, as soon as possible.

Signs of a Neck, Back, or Head Injury

Symptoms of a neck, back, or head injury may not manifest immediately following an accident. It is not uncommon for accident victims to experience symptoms in the days or weeks following the crash, including:

  • Headache
  • Increased fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Loss of focus
  • Increased irritation while driving (“road rage”)
  • Pain, numbness, and tingling (signaling nerve damage)

The extent of pain and injury varies depending on age, fitness level, vehicle speed on impact, and others. A thorough medical evaluation by a trained professional is crucial to document injuries for potential personal injury claims.

Neck, Back, or Head Injury Treatments

Receiving proper treatment for head, neck, and back injuries is vital for a complete recovery. Treatment approaches vary based on location, severity, and patient response. Common treatments include:

  • Physical therapy, chiropractic care, massage therapy, acupuncture, and other conservative methods
  • Medications
  • Muscle and joint injections
  • Radio-frequency neuro ablation procedures to “deaden” nerve tissue
  • Spinal surgery (in more severe cases)
  • Counseling for emotional injuries
  • Cognitive rehabilitation for head trauma cases

Long-Term Effects of Back and Neck Pain

Many non-serious injuries resolve with proper care. However, severe injuries may result in long-term effects that must be addressed by the patient and medical team. Back and neck surgeries vary in type, and their seriousness should be considered after exhausting other treatment options.

The patient’s ability to perform normal daily activities serves as a significant test of recovery following an accident. If pain persists after an accident, Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) may also be negatively impacted. The inability to perform essential or enjoyable activities can cause significant emotional and mental stress, which is crucial in any legal case.

Compensation For Spine and Neck Injuries

The court determines the damages awarded in neck and back injury cases based on specific case facts. Settlements can range from $10,000 to over $100,000, depending on various factors. Recoverable damages may include:

  • Lost wages or reduced earning capacity
  • Property damages, vehicle repairs or replacement, etc.
  • Medical expenses, assisted living expenses, medications, etc.
  • Anticipated future medical care
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

Our attorneys will fight to gain the compensation that you deserve.
