Auto Accident Q & A

What injuries are common as a result of a car accident?

Injuries that aren’t life-threatening but could become chronic, painful conditions if not treated soon after an auto accident include:

  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs in your spine
  • Concussions
  • Torn ligaments
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures

If the car accident was minor, you may not feel like you experienced any type of injury, but the next day you might notice sore muscles, neck or back pain, or stiffness in your spine. These are all signs that you actually may have sustained an injury during your auto accident.

If that’s the case, you should seek treatment before the problem becomes chronic or causes further complications.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash damages the soft tissue in your neck, including muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Whiplash, one of the most common auto accident injuries, occurs most often in accidents in which your car is rear-ended.

When you’re hit from behind, it forces your head forward and back again, beyond its normal limits, and can cause severe neck pain and headaches.

Other signs that you may have whiplash include:

  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Shoulder pain
  • Upper back pain or tenderness
  • Lower back pain
  • Reduced range of motion in your neck
  • Pain in one or both arms

Left untreated, whiplash can cause pain and problems for years after your accident.
