Due to the nature of the impact, a neck sprain is one of the most common injuries resulting from a car accident. It occurs in most cases when the victim’s vehicle is struck from the rear by another vehicle. The sudden impact causes a jerking of the neck that can cause the muscles and tissues in the neck to be damaged. In most cases the pain goes away in a few months, but the pain can last for many months or years. This can lead to lost work time, extensive medical bills, and a strain on victim’s quality of life.
If you have been in a car or motorcycle accident, it is important that you visit your doctor or a hospital immediately if you experience any of the following common symptoms: neck pain, headaches, dizziness, burning or prickling around the neck, or shoulder/back pain.
It is important that you know that because of the adrenaline surging through your body immediately after the accident, you may not hurt right away, and you may feel the pain of a serious injury well after the injury has taken place. It could take several days before you feel any real effects of the accident, and it’s important that you seek the proper professional counsel immediately following your accident, so that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
