More than just a pain in the neck. Neck injuries can have long-term consequences.
Neck injuries are common in rear-end collisions and other accidents. They can require surgery, sometimes months or years after the collision.
If you’ve had an auto accident, a sports injury or were injured due to the negligence of others, you should consult your physician as soon as possible.
Your injury could be more complex than you imagined and only your physician can know the extent of the damage.
Whiplash, cervical muscle strain, cervical spine injury and mobility disorders can have a long-term impact on your health. Many times, arthritis can result at the site of an injury that happened years before. One study found that even after 5 years, 50% of patients with injuries to the neck continue to have pain and disability.
Insurance companies may rush you to settle before you are completely healed. A quick settlement of your car’s damage may not cover a life of pain and discomfort arising out of a seemingly minor accident.
