According to the Mayo Clinic, a neck sprain is a stretching or tearing of ligaments — the tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect one bone to another in your joints.
A neck strain, according to the Mayo Clinic, is a stretching or tearing of muscle or tendon, a fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones.
Generally, a neck sprain occurs when a ligament in an auto accident victim’s neck is torn or overextended as a result of severe stress on a joint. And a neck strain occurs when a muscle in a person’s neck is torn or becomes strained or pulled when it stretches unusually far or abruptly, according to the Mayo Clinic. This can happen from the shock and sudden movement caused by a car accident or truck accident.
Neck sprains and strains frequently result in severe neck pain and muscle spasms for auto accident victims. Additionally, neck sprains and strains cause marked restriction and painful limitation in a Michigan auto accident victim’s range of motion.
If you have a neck injury or sprain/strain as a result of another person’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for your losses and pain and suffering.
