Spinal cord injury common complaint after car accident

We have already discussed how another driver's actions can constitute reckless driving in Nevada. These types of car accidents can result in serious injuries for the passengers involved in the accident. There are several possible injuries that can occur after a car accident. One serious injury that can have lifelong consequences are spinal cord injuries.

Spinal cord injuries can affect the lower, middle or upper spine including the neck. The brunt force impact of some car accidents can jolt the spine in such a way that causes serious injury to the area. Results of an injured spine can be paralysis or loss of feeling and movement in certain areas of the body. Car accidents can also result in whiplash which is the sudden movement of the head and neck.

Whiplash is a very common complaint after car accidents, especially after rear-end collisions. The sudden movement of the head and neck causes neck muscle and ligament damage. Pain and swelling are frequent symptoms of whiplash. It is also possible for whiplash victims to experience temporary vocal cord paralysis after a car accident.

If a person was involved in a car accident where a spinal cord injury or whiplash was sustained, it is important to speak with a medical professional about the medical symptoms. It is also crucial to investigate the facts of the crash thoroughly. If injuries sustained during a car accident were due to the negligence of another driver, the affected driver should fully investigate in order to claim any damages owed to him or her. If chosen, the attorney representing the injured will work tirelessly to ensure the best outcome for the client.
