Instead, it is the negligence or wrongdoing of another party who causes an accident that results in serious, disabling, and potentially permanent back or neck injury.

Types of Back & Neck Injuries

The back and neck are vulnerable parts of the human body, susceptible to severe injury with only slight impacts or misalignments. Muscles, ligaments, bone, cartilage, and nerves all comprise the neck and back, and they all can become torn, sprained, twisted, and otherwise injured in an accident.

Some of the more frequent back and neck injuries and consequences of these injuries are:

  • Bone and compression fractures
  • Ligament tears
  • Nerve damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Disk problems (e.g., bulging, slipped or herniated disk)
  • Neck pain that radiates to the shoulders and arms
  • Muscle ruptures
  • Inflammation of muscle attachments to the spine
  • Chronically tight muscles in the upper back and neck

Pain, Loss of Function & Lasting Disability

Back and neck injuries can result in severe and chronic pain, damage to the entire body's ability to function and move, and, in some cases, permanent disability. The damage from a back or neck injury may be apparent immediately after the incident that caused it, or it may be days, weeks, or even months before the symptoms of the injury manifest themselves. For this reason, it is always important to see a medical professional quickly after being in a serious accident that you think might have hurt your neck or back.

You may be suffering from your back or neck injury for years and years. Even with rehabilitative therapy, surgery, and other medical measures, the damage done could be expected to last for the rest of your life. Other problems will arise if you lose your job or cannot continue your career due to your disability. It might be that you never are able to return to your life before the accident. At Brett Oppenheimer, PLLC in Louisville, all of your damages – past, current, and future – are considered when calculating a fair amount of damages to demand from the liable party.
