Neck Injuries in the South Bay
Common Causes of Neck Injuries
The neck is highly susceptible to injury. When the body is subjected to violent forces, such as in a car accident, motorcycle accident or slip and fall, the head is liable to whip back and forth. This may cause injuries in the tissues of the neck, and these may range from sprains and strains to fractures in the vertebrae or even paralyzing spinal cord injuries. Even relatively minor neck injuries may leave the accident victim with chronic and debilitating pain, while more severe types of injury to the neck have the potential to cause permanent disability or even death due to loss of the ability to breathe.
Neck injuries can happen for an almost endless number of reasons, but when they are due to the careless or reckless actions of another person, the accident victim has a right to pursue financial compensation by filing a personal injury claim. This is true whether you suffered whiplash in a rear-end collision caused by a driver who was texting on a cellphone or sustained quadriplegia after being thrown from your motorcycle. Alternatively, you may be able to pursue a workers' compensation claim if your neck injury occurred in a work-related accident.
