Being involved in an accident through no fault of your own is one way how you could develop a neck injury. If you have sustained an injury and you are considering pursuing a personal injury compensation claim, then Accident Advice Helpline can help you through the claims process.
How you could develop a neck injury
There are many different types of ways how you could develop a neck injury. Indeed, it may not always be obvious at the time of the accident that you have actually injured your neck. Many soft tissue injuries may take some hours after the accident occurs to develop and become apparent.
One particular type of soft tissue injury which often presents itself hours or even days after an accident occurs is whiplash. Whiplash refers to the sudden, often violent movement of the neck in sideways, forwards and backwards directions resulting in damage to the tender ligaments and tendons in the neck.
This trauma, known as whiplash, is commonly diagnosed following road traffic accidents when passengers may find themselves flung under force forwards and then recoil backwards under the impact created in a collision.
More serious ways how you could sustain a neck injury can include falls from height particularly down a flight of stairs or from a ladder. These types of injuries can inflict serious trauma to the bones in the neck causing them to break or fracture. In extreme cases, this can cause spinal cord damage and result in paralysis.
