Reckless drivers often cause car accidents in Tennessee, resulting in injuries causing neck and back pain. While this can be a common injury, you likely need an experienced personal injury lawyer from the beginning.
What causes these back and neck injuries?
The force associated with a car accident can cause serious damage to the back and neck area. These injuries may result in long-term discomfort as well as negatively impacting victims economically due to loss of work, medical bills, therapy, and potentially lifelong issues.
One of the most common injuries is 'whiplash'. The inertia of opposing forces in an impact accident can and often results in a violent movement of the head. This injury, which may take several days to fully develop, can be extremely painful and debilitating.
Lower back pain, caused by a misalignment or damage to the spinal discs may also be the result of a car accident. Ligaments, muscles, and tendons along the spine may also be damaged.
What kinds of treatments may I expect?
Treatments for these injuries vary from physical therapy, to medications, to spinal surgery. Many of these injuries may last for months, and in some cases, for a lifetime.
But this wasn't my fault!
If your car accident was not your fault, is it fair to you that you suffer due to someone else's negligence? We think not.
Seek legal advice before agreeing to anything.
Neck and back injuries are no stranger to insurance companies. Their adjusters and experts may attempt to claim your injury is minor and attempt to minimize your claim. It is important for accident victims to seek legal opinions sooner rather than later in these cases.

Hydroplaning can be caused by multiple negligent actions:
