Symptoms include:

• Back pain

• Weakness in the arms and legs

• Neck pain

• Headaches

Reading resources like the one mentioned above, it becomes abundantly clear that there is often a close similarity between traumatic injury symptoms and symptoms of other chronic spinal problems. For example, the article also points out that having bone spurs does not mean that those bone spurs are responsible for pain and symptoms. In a review of conditions like cervical osteoarthritis, the article talks about other types of pain, such as pain below the shoulder blades and pain that comes and goes throughout the day.

Why is All This Important to Accident Victims?

First of all, it is important for injury victims to get quick, accurate and unbiased medical evaluations. It is also important for medical professionals to fully document any injuries that occurred. But it is also important to get good legal counsel in order to try to prove that an impact really did make a difference in the injury victim’s health. Without qualified counsel, those who are bringing these types of personal injury cases can be confronted with very complex issues with respect to the nature of injury, statute of limitations, doctor testimony and much more. One of the reasons for this is due to those very nebulous characteristics of injury outcomes, as it often becomes difficult to tell a sudden, quick injury from the symptoms of aging or chronic degeneration.
