Common Causes of Spine and Neck Injuries
It takes a pretty serious accident to cause a spinal cord or neck injury. They can be completely devastating and it can feel like your life is ruined. The most common causes of these types of injuries include:
- Auto accidents
- Falling from heights
- Slip and falls
- Acts of violence
- Accidents that happen during sports or after school activities
- Medical malpractice
As you may already know, these accidents can be life-changing and you want to be able to take care of these injuries immediately after they happen to prevent them from getting worse.
What Do to After the Accident
There is a good chance that you will be unable to move after your accident if you have a spinal cord or neck injury. If you are able to get up and move around, it is highly advised that you seek emergency medical attention immediately. If an ambulance shows up, get on it and go to the emergency room. Your health is the most important thing after an accident. You need to make sure you do not delay in seeking treatment or you could be seriously at risk for worsening your conditions.
If you are unable to stay on the scene, you can have your friend, family member, or attorney go on site and collect evidence for you. That includes the contact information from witnesses, photos of the scene, and the insurance information from whoever is liable. If it is a car accident, you would get insurance information from the person who hit you. If it was a slip and fall, you would get insurance information from the property owner.
