All of these accidents have something common, there was a traumatic event that caused the spine to fracture, dislocate, crush, or ligaments to sprain or strain. These injuries do not always manifest themselves immediately after an accident. The adrenaline, the rush, the occupation with other things usually mask the true effect of these types of injuries.
