If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, or if you’ve slipped and fallen, you need emergency medical help right away. Don’t move from the scene of the accident. You’ll need an experienced paramedic to transport you to the hospital with utmost care while stabilizing your vertebrae. Neck injuries often involve fractures, but no one can know if yours does until you get to the hospital. At the very least, you’ve probably suffered muscular strains and sprains from twisting or recoiling. Even before you call an injury attorney, insist that you be taken to the hospital with all due care.
You may not feel a great deal of pain at first, but this doesn’t mean you’re not badly hurt. Here are some tips from our experienced neck injury attorneys that your injury might be worse than you think:
Further, neck injury can also mean spinal cord injury. Your neck protects your spinal cord, but your spinal cord runs a long road from your lower back to get there. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons indicates that the higher your spinal cord injury, the more likely it is that you will experience motor difficulties and problems with sensation. Quadriplegia results from injuries in this region, involving muscle dysfunction in both arms and legs.
