Neck injuries following a car accident are the most common types of problems that occur. Many neck-related injuries are possible after an accident, beyond the most commonly recognized whiplash syndrome. The bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles of the neck, or cervical spine, as doctors refer to it, are very susceptible to damage because of the large forces transferred to the neck during an automobile accident. It is important that you consider the possibility of a neck or cervical injury in the hours and days following your accident. It is often not clear to neck injury accident victims that they have suffered a significant injury until some time after the car wreck that caused the neck problem. You may be distracted by the events surrounding the accident and the stress involved with having suffered an automobile collision, which directly influences your awareness of what neck damage you may have suffered. Below, we will provide information about what you should do to make sure you have an opportunity to identify significant neck injuries related to your accident as soon as possible following the car wreck.
