The coccyx, also called the tailbone or Coccygeal Spine, is located at the bottom of the vertebral column of the spine. Held in place by joints and ligaments, the coccyx is composed of bony segments. When an injury or fracture of the tailbone area occurs, it can result in significant pain and discomfort for the victim, in addition to other complications. The recovery process can require surgery and other medical treatment as well as time away from work. It is a smart move to enlist the help of an experienced personal injury attorney handling spinal column injury claims.

Many coccyx injuries are caused by trauma that is suffered directly to the tailbone area. This can include falls onto the tailbone, usually against a hard surface, and other direct blows to the tailbone such as during a car or other auto accident. Symptoms of a coccyx fracture may include severe pain in the tailbone area, bruising, numbness and tingling.
