The Seriousness of Auto Accidents

Some of the complaints may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Low Back Pain
  • Mid Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Radiating Pain in the Arms, Hands, and Legs
  • Signs of Concussion
  • Whiplash

 

Whiplash in Fargo, ND

One of the most common injuries associated with car accidents is whiplash injuries. Whiplash refers to a group of injuries that occur as a result of the sudden, violent whipping motion of the head in an accident. The whip can happen in any direction – back-forward, forward-back, side-side, or anything in between. Various injuries can result, including damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back. A host of related symptoms can be attributed to the injuries to these areas and to the untrained eye, can appear completely unconnected to the original trauma.

An auto accident should always be taken seriously no matter how harmless it may at first appear, because of the areas of the body that it can affect. It should also be remembered that the effects of whiplash may take weeks or months to fully manifest; thus, it cannot be assumed that no injuries exist just because no symptoms are felt immediately following the accident.
