Neck Injury Lawyer
After an accident, many people suffer from neck injuries. These types of injuries can range from soft tissue pains to life-changing spinal injuries. The most common types of neck injuries are:
- Pinched nerves
- Herniated discs
If the neck is severely injured, an irreversible spinal cord injury can occur, leading to full or partial paralysis. Depending on the accident, other injuries, like a traumatic brain injury, may accompany a neck injury. Neck injuries often occur as the result of auto accidents, but can also result from falls at work, premise liability accidents, or even medical malpractice.
The symptoms include:
- Reduced range of motion
- Pain in your shoulders, arms, or hands
- Numbness or weakness
- Slowed reflexes
- Muscles spasms
While some soft-tissue injuries may go away after treatment, neck injuries often lead to lasting pain. Even if an injury is not extreme, like a serious spinal injury, the pain can still create a strain on your lifestyle. Neck injuries can hinder everyday activities, like work or driving. If an injury prevents you from doing a job you did before your accident, you may experience financial strains from lost wages. Additionally, a neck injury creates miserable pain, sleep disruptions, and may prevent you from enjoying your usual hobbies or activities. If a loved one suffers a fatal neck injury, you will have to deal with lost wages, plus the pain and suffering of unfairly losing a loved one.
