Respected law firm aids individuals with debilitating neck injuries
Car crashes, motorcycle accidents, falls, sports activities and even violence can all cause serious neck injuries with lifelong consequences. Catastrophic neck injuries to the spinal cord can leave victims paralyzed. Specific types of medical conditions that can be caused when someone suffers an impact to the neck include:
- Sprains and strains that result in pain and swelling
- Whiplash, when your head is thrown violently forward and back, causing soft tissue damage
- Ruptured or herniated discs that push on nerves and cause pain
- Facet joint injuries that cause pain and severely limit range of motion
- Spinal cord injury from fractures, compression or dislocation of vertebrae
You may be unable to work or carry out the necessary tasks of daily life following a neck injury. If you believe another party was responsible for the accident that injured you, we will gather the evidence and work to establish liability so you can collect proper payment in a verdict or settlement.
Well-informed counselors understand the financial impacts of neck injuries
The medical costs to treat permanent neck injuries can be exorbitant. Depending on your injury, you may require emergency care, hospitalization, surgeries, expensive medications, substantial rehabilitation and ongoing therapy. Injuries to the cervical spinal cord, which comprises the seven vertebrae in the neck, are the most serious of spinal injuries. Damage to these vertebrae often result in tetraplegia, also called quadriplegia, which is paralysis of both the upper and lower body. People who suffer this catastrophic injury may need skilled nursing care for the rest of their lives and assistance with simple daily tasks, from eating to bathing and more. When we meet with you, our experienced lawyers will review your situation to determine what type of demand would be warranted given your particular condition and outlook.
Diligent litigators pursue remedies for injury victims
People who are injured due to the negligence of another have the right to seek compensation from the at-fault party through a personal injury claim. The amount of compensation available in a personal injury claim is based on the damages you’ve suffered. Here are examples of damages that may be paid in personal injury claims:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages and future lost earning capacity
- Payment to address physical pain and emotional distress
- Punitive damages in cases of egregious negligence
Once we examine all of the relevant circumstances, we will vigorously pursue an appropriate resolution on your behalf in settlement negotiations, and, if necessary, in court.
