The spinal column is made up of different segments. One of those segments is the cervical spine, or C-Spine. The C-Spine is made up of 7 cervical vertebrae and they are numbered C1 through C-7. Injury to the C-Spine due to an accident can inflict great pain, suffering and result in a diminished quality of life.

A cervical spine injury can occur during any accident that causes great force to the neck area upon impact. Damage and injury to the cervical spine can be minor, moderate and severe. These injuries commonly occur in auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, slips and falls and premises liability accidents such as swimming pool and diving accidents.
Cervical spine injuries can often lead to permanent impairment, nerve injury and loss of use of effected body part. In severe personal injury cases the victim may be paralyzed following the accident.
