Neck and back injuries can include herniated or ruptured disks caused by damage to the padding between vertabrae. Herniated and ruptured disks are often the result of sudden impact accidents, like being hit by a car.
Whiplash is another severe injury to the neck and back caused by an overextension of the neck. Insurance companies have denied that “whiplash” exists for years, despite medical evidence to the contrary.
“Compressive fractures” caused by trauma often include bone breaks and vertebra breaks. More extreme accidents can cause paralysis, resulting in life-altering repercussions like reduced quality of life, loss of employment and substantial loss of income, which will be needed to afford future medical care.
