According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2007 more than 2.5 million people in the US were injured from motor vehicle accidents and 41,059 people died from the accidents. Neck and back injuries are the most common injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents. Although most people can fully recover from mild neck or back injuries within 2-3 months, many may suffer from an injury for extended periods of time. And a serious neck or back injury involving the spinal cord may permanently destroy a person’s life.

If you or your loved ones are suffering from a neck or back injury caused by a vehicle accident, it’s very important for you to fully understand what type of injury you or your loved ones have and the severity of the injury. Is it a sprain, strain, herniated disc, or bone fracture? Is your brain or spinal cord affected? Medical professionals can help you answer these questions and let you know the types of treatment needed and how long the recovery process is going to be.
