What you should know about back and neck injuries

Like many car accident injuries, an injury to the back or neck may not be obvious right after the accident. This is a reason why it's important to see your doctor promptly after an accident, even if you think you can "shake it off." You may be more injured than you think. The following are a few symptoms of back and neck strain injuries:

  • Pain that spreads to the arm or neck
  • Sensation of muscles tightening around chest
  • Muscle weakness and/or numbness or tingling in fingers or hands
  • Radiating pain down the legs
  • Difficulty standing or sitting up
  • Muscle spasms in the back or neck

Back and neck injuries can range in severity. They can even be life-threatening and should never be ignored. The following are types of back-and-neck-related injuries that can create significant hardship:

  • Broken backs
  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Ruptured discs
  • Slipped discs
  • Spinal cord injuries

We have seen back and neck injuries in all types of South Florida accidents, including motorcycle accidentstruck wrecks and even on-the-job accidents that lead to a workers' compensation claim.
