A common misconception about back and neck injuries is that they occur only in high speed accidents or collisions, however in reality, most result in low-speed accidents. Many factors specific to the individual and the situation impact how an injury to either the back or neck is sustained, and as a result all injuries are unique. Some side effects of a back or neck injury include:
- Neck pain or stiffness
- Blurred visions
- Decreased range of motion
- Sleep disturbances
Though at times they are less devastating than a spinal cord injury, back and neck injuries can still result in an inability to function normally on a daily basis, and can have a lasting impact of chronic pain or immobility well beyond the date of an accident. Intensive rehabilitation treatment and therapies can assist with back and neck injuries, and compensation can be obtained for our clients to help cope with financial costs and damages sustained in the incident where the injury occurred.
