Neck and Back Injuries Suffered in Atlanta Car Accidents

By Grant Law Office on December 3, 2012

neck & back injuries from a car crash

Many of the most debilitating and life-changing injuries one can suffer in an Atlanta car accident involves neck and back trauma. Even low-speed collisions can result in serious injuries when there is a sudden jerking motion that damages vehicle occupants’ muscles, nerves, or connective tissues. While some victims are able to recover within a few days through rest and proper treatment, others sustain much more serious neck and back injuries that can leave them with chronic pain or in need of extended treatments and rehabilitation.

Disc injuries are a common result of Georgia car accidents. When the spongy cushions within the spinal column are forced out of place or ruptured in an accident, the consequences can be severe. Damaged disc injuries can result in pressure on the nerves causing severe pain, numbness, or weakness.

Atlanta car crashes often cause spinal cord injuries, which can impair the brain’s ability to communicate with the rest of the body. Therefore, any damage to the spinal cord sustained in an accident can result in a loss of physical ability. Any trauma to the middle of the spinal cord can result in physical disabilities involving the legs called paraplegia. Damage to the spinal cord near the neck or upper back can result in paralysis of the arms and legs, which is known as quadriplegia.
