Advocating For Your Rights
Spinal injuries are typically caused by motor vehicle accidents and sports injuries. They can also occur due to falls. Nonetheless, motor vehicle accidents tend to be the most common sources of spinal injuries. The most common spinal injuries associated with these accidents include whiplash, paralysis, and vertebrae fractures. Whiplash is often believed to be a minor injury, but it can actually be rather debilitating. Whiplash can lead to psychological issues, chronic neck pain, and even permanent disability.
Even if you believe that your injuries are minor after an accident, it is important to seek medical care as soon as possible so that the condition can be adequately documented. Your medical records are going to be very important in your case. Although you may not feel pain now doesn’t mean that you won’t weeks or months from now.
