Drivers in Texas are 46 percent more likely to get into an auto accident than the rest of the United States. Dallas falls in the bottom 15% of cities for safe-driving records, according to the Allstate America's Best Driver Report. While it's a relatively small suburban city in Dallas, with only around 140,000 people calling it home, Mesquite, Texas, has plenty of auto accidents on its roads.

The Texas Department of Transportation states that there was a total of 832 car crashes throughout Mesquite in 2018. Of these 832, there were 11 fatalities and 49 serious injuries. While this data suggests that serious crashes aren't that common in the Mesquite area, there's still a chance that drivers may be involved in a crash that injures them in some way.

Injuries that occur as a result of auto accidents can be debilitating and painful. They may lead to an individual having to take time off work and lose out on money as a result of their injuries. The most common types of injuries related to auto accidents are whiplash, neck pain, and back pain.

This guide looks at some common symptoms of these injuries, and potential ways that Premier Injury Clinics of Dallas Fort Worth can treat them.

Whiplash and Neck Pain After an Auto Accident

Whiplash is the non-medical term for an injury to the soft tissue of the neck which is experienced when the neck's tendons and ligaments are extended beyond their regular comfortable limits. It's similar to a sprained ankle in terms of level of pain and discomfort, as well as type of injury.

There's no minimum speed that a vehicle needs to be travelling for a passenger or driver to suffer whiplash. It can occur in low-speed collisions should the head and neck be positioned in an awkward manner at the moment of impact.

Whiplash doesn't usually emerge until a around 24 to 48 hours after the accident, so it's likely that you may not realise you have a whiplash injury until a day or two after you're involved in a crash. Most cases of whiplash are mild, and will only last a few days or weeks. In some instances, serious cases can result in permanent damage to the neck.


Back Pain After an Auto Accident

It's common not to experience back pain straight away after an auto accident. Similarly to whiplash and neck pain, it can take day, or in some instances even weeks for symptoms to manifest and affect your life.

After such a period of time it may seem that your symptoms aren't connected to the accident - which is why it's important to see your doctor as soon as possible after your accident. You should do this whether you feel unwell or not. Seeing your doctor can ensure you're well-informed and get the support of a chiropractor sooner rather than later.
