Truck Accident Neck Injuries

South Carolina Truck Accident Neck Injury Attorneys

Truck accidents involve an incredible amount of force that, unfortunately, can wreak unimaginable havoc. Given the relative fragility of the human neck, neck injuries are among the most common type of injury following any serious motor vehicle accident – South Carolina truck accidents are no exception.

A neck injury can change your life forever. At the Steinberg Law Firm, we represent clients who have been seriously injured in semi-truck accidents, helping them recover fair compensation for what they have been through. With over 200 years of combined experience, we can confidently advise you about your options and help you pursue a claim for compensation.

Types of Neck Injuries

Neck injuries range in seriousness from relatively mild to life-altering. The most commonly seen injury in a Charleston truck accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a type of neck injury that results from an abrupt movement of the head from back to front or front to back. Whiplash can present a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Neck stiffness or pain
  • Dizziness
  • Pain or numbness in the hands
  • Pain between the shoulder blades
  • Headaches
  • Lower back pain
  • Difficulty remembering or concentrating
  • General irritability
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Fatigue

While whiplash may go away on its own, that is not always the case. In some situations, whiplash will cause damage to the intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, cervical muscles or nerve roots. Whiplash cannot be seen on a traditional X-ray and is typically diagnosed through a CT scan or an MRI.

Other than whiplash, truck accidents often result in two other common neck injuries:

  • Broken neck: A broken neck is caused by one or more of the vertebrae in the neck being fractured or broken. Neck fractures range in seriousness, depending on the extent of the damage caused. Mild neck injuries may be treated with a cervical brace, while more serious injuries will require surgery and an extensive recovery period. In some cases, a broken neck results in full or partial body paralysis.
  • Disc injuries: The vertebrae have soft discs between them to keep them from rubbing against each other and to facilitate movement. If enough force is applied to the neck, these discs can rupture or break. This type of injury includes bulging discs, herniated discs, ruptured discs and slipped discs.

Neck injuries are extremely common in South Carolina truck accidents. Accident victims who have sustained a serious neck injury are encouraged to reach out to a dedicated injury lawyer to discuss their case.
