Spinal Injuries in New Mexico Rear End Car Accidents

Rear End New Mexico Car Accidents Can Cause Serious Spinal Injuries, Including Permanent and Debilitating Injuries

All car accidents have the potential to cause serious personal injuries.  This can be no more true than tractor trailer accidents, high speed collisions, and rear end car accidents.  In fact, rear end car accidents are very dangerous because of the vulnerable position that the victims in the lead car are in.  Injuries from rear end car accidents can cause life-threatening and permanent injuries, including quadriplegia, paraplegia, and even death.

Reasons Why Spinal Injuries Are Common in Rear End Car Accidents

Rear end car accidents force the passengers in the lead vehicle to lurch forward and then whip backwards.  The faster the impact, the more violent this lurch and whip will happen.  Generally speaking, this is known as whiplash.  It places great pressure on the neck muscles, ligaments, and tendons.  It also places great pressure on the spinal column and spinal cord.  This can, in turn, cause pressure on the nerves coming from the spinal cord.

Many times the victims of rear end car accidents do not see the impact coming before it happens.  This means that many times a rear end car accident occurs before a victim can brace.  This creates a greater whiplash type injury as the body is not braced for impact.  This causes serious injury.

Types of Spinal Injuries from Rear End Car Accidents

There are many different types of injuries which can be caused by a rear end car accident.  Most of these injuries are focused on the neck (cervical) and mid-back (thoracic) spine.  This is generally the part of the spine which will take the most abuse from the whiplash motion.  Some common injuries include the following:

  • Ruptured discs;
  • Herniated discs;
  • Torn ligaments or tendons it the neck;
  • Fractured vertebrae;
  • Nerve damage;
  • Nerve impingement;
  • Concussions;
  • Dislocated shoulder;
  • Facial injuries from hitting the steering wheel;
  • Orbital blowout fractures;
  • Spinal cord ruptures;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Fractured bones; and
  • Related injuries.
