Causes of Neck Injuries

Neck injuries may occur from blunt force trauma to the head, neck, or back region. Car accidents, slip and fall incidents, and workplace accidents are common causes of neck injuries. Repetitive strain, lifting heavy objects without using ergonomic lifting equipment, and poor posture may also contribute to neck injuries. Whether your injury was caused by a sudden accident or gradual strain, our knowledgeable Schenectady personal injury lawyers will help you file a claim and walk you through the legal process.

Types of Neck Injuries

Neck injuries can have serious symptoms, such as chronic headaches, shoulder pain, weakness, neck pain, and tingling or numbness in the arms and legs. Depending on the severity of your injury, you could face extensive medical treatment, including medication, physical therapy, and surgery.

The most common types of neck injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Muscle and ligament strains and sprains
  • Pinched nerves
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Disc injuries
  • Spinal cord trauma

If you have been in a car accident or another type of incident that caused trauma to your neck, it is important to seek medical attention right away, even if you don’t feel pain. Whiplash, muscle sprains, and soft tissue damage may not exhibit symptoms for hours, days, or weeks after the initial trauma. This means you could be suffering a neck injury without even knowing it. By seeing a doctor after an accident, you can receive the treatment you need for a neck injury.

It is also important to pay attention to the warning signs of a repetitive strain neck injury, such as stiffness and pain. You may be able to receive workers’ compensation benefits if your neck injury occurred while performing work duties. Our attorneys will discuss your options and guide you through the New York legal system.
