Causes of Neck Injuries in Personal Injury Claims

Neck injuries can be costly, and if someone else caused your accident, they should also cover the costs of your injury. Some accidents that can lead to neck injuries and personal injury claims include:

Common Neck Injuries

Neck injuries can range from minor sprains to severe injuries that can result in permanent disability or even death. It’s a vulnerable area of the body, so any sudden or forceful impact can cause serious damage. The following are descriptions of a few common types of neck injuries.


Whiplash is a common neck injury that occurs when the head is suddenly jerked forward and then backward, causing the neck to move beyond its normal range of motion. This can result in muscle strains, ligament sprains, and damage to the soft tissues in the neck. Symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, stiffness, and headaches.

Herniated Disc

A herniated disc occurs when the soft, gel-like material inside a spinal disc pushes out through a tear in the disc’s outer layer. This can cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerves, leading to pain, numbness, and weakness in the neck, arms, and hands.

Cervical Fracture

A cervical fracture is a serious neck injury that occurs when one of the seven cervical vertebrae in the neck is broken. This can be caused by a sudden impact, such as a car accident or a fall. Symptoms of a cervical fracture include severe neck pain, numbness or tingling in the arms or legs, and difficulty moving the neck or arms.

Cervical Sprain

A cervical sprain occurs when the ligaments in the neck are stretched or torn, often as a result of sudden force or impact. Symptoms include neck pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving the neck.

Neck Strain

A neck strain occurs when the muscles in the neck are stretched or torn, often as a result of sudden force or impact. Symptoms include neck pain, stiffness, and muscle spasms.

Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve in the neck occurs when the nerves that run through the neck are compressed or squeezed, often as a result of a herniated disc or bone spurs. Symptoms include pain, numbness, and tingling in the neck, arms, or hands.

If you suspect that you have a neck injury, seek medical attention right away to prevent further damage and ensure proper treatment.
