Vertebral Arterial Dissection Injuries

Car Accident Lawyer in Alpharetta for Vertebral Arterial Dissection Injuries

One of the major causes of stroke in young children and young adults is the tearing of internal arteries. Trauma to the neck can lead to this injury, common in car accidents; VAD can have very severe consequences if not treated immediately and correctly. The initial symptom of this condition is often stabbing pain in the neck, eye, head or face, and migraine headaches. As blood is leaking from the arteries, there is great risk of neurological damage.

Symptoms of VAD: Car Accident Cases in Alpharetta

The symptoms of VAD can be subtle, or significant and life changing. These include pain and numbness, hoarseness, loss of the ability to taste, hiccups, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, paralysis, and other serious physical conditions.

If you have been in a car accident and are suffering any of these symptoms, you should contact an Alpharetta car accident lawyer from The Kalka Law Group at once!

As whiplash is a common car accident injury, it may be possible that your symptoms are a result of VAD, which must be treated by a physician that can identify the condition through imaging and treat it quickly and correctly.

The impact of a car accident can lead to very serious conditions, as there is bleeding from the artery affected, leading into the tissue surrounding the tear. Blood can pool and coagulate, creating blockage, leading to stroke. An arterial tear and bleeding can then restrict the blood flow to the brain, or completely interrupt the flow, causing brain damage or paralysis.

After a car accident in which the injured victim has suffered whiplash, the risk of vertebral arterial dissection is high. The sudden whipping motion of the neck can damage the arteries in the neck, leading to stroke as well as other symptoms such as head pain, eye pain, drooping eyelids, double-vision, and other symptoms that indicate that the nerves are being affected.
