Why are neck injuries so serious?

Apart from decreased movement, discomfort, and problems handling routine duties, there are other detrimental after effects of neck injuries. Victims of tragic accidents frequently have post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, which can lead to difficulties sleeping and maintaining attention even when awake. 

In addition to immediate and long-term health issues, a neck injury typically requires time away from work and other responsibilities to rest and heal, adding stress to the lives of the injured person and their loved ones.

Types of Neck Injury in New York Accidents

Although some medical issues might be to blame for a person's neck pain, the kind of injuries most commonly associated with personal injury lawsuits are mechanical in origin (affecting the spinal cord and its parts, nerves, and muscle). Most neck injuries can be categorized as:

  • Acute: Short-term and lasting between a few days and weeks.
  • Subacute: With pain lasting 4-12 weeks.
  • Chronic: More persistent and extending to 12 weeks or more. The pain is more protracted even after the underlying cause has been addressed.

Whiplash Injury

A whiplash injury occurs when the head snaps back and then forward at great speed, stressing the neck. Vehicle crashes, especially rear end ones, are a common cause of this injury. While its severity varies, pain in the shoulders and neck are the main symptoms.

Whiplash and other crash-related neck injuries are likely consequences of vehicle collisions and can occur at any speed. Besides the intensity of the hit, the victim's height, posture, and use of a seatbelt may all play a role in the severity of whiplash.
