Neck and Back Injuries After an Accident

A common cause of neck and back injuries

Car accidents are a far-too-common occurrence today. At Mac Hester Law, our accident attorneys often run into situations in which victims do not think they have been injured, when in fact they need medical attention. These victims also need payment from an insurance company to cover the bills. That is why we have an entire page on our website dedicated to back, neck, and spinal injuries, and an entire page dedicated to head or brain injuries.

Neck and back injuries have serious consequences

We have blogs that focus on head, back, neck, and back injuries.This blog is dedicated to equipping you to identify an injury. They are not always obvious, so it is important to know the signs.

  1. Any sort of pain in the neck
  2. Headaches
  3. Muscle spasms in your neck
  4. Any pain in shoulders, arms, and hands
  5. Smaller range of motion in your neck
  6. Numbness or weakness in hands and arms

As you can see from this list, many problems manifest themselves in the neck. You can also see that many symptoms could be written off as insignificant, “normal” results of being a car accident. The thing is, after a car accident, your body has a massive response involving endorphins and adrenaline, which numb many symptoms of serious injuries. These are injuries that sometimes take weeks to manifest and require expensive attention. As your body calms down, if you feel any of the symptoms on the list above, you need to see a medical professional.

At Mac Hester Law, our accident attorneys are here to make sure you get what you need after an accident, whether it is simple advice or help dealing with an insurance company. Contact us for premier service in Northern Colorado.
