Cervical / Neck Injuries: Los Angeles & Nationwide
Neck injuries are incredibly dangerous. Even a minor neck injury can lead to chronic pain and functional limitations. More serious injuries to the neck or cervical disc can cause permanent functional limitations such as paralysis, and they are frequently fatal. Neck injuries can result from sudden impacts, unnatural twisting motions, chronic diseases, or other traumatic events.
The personal injury legal team at Morris Law Firm pursues neck injury cases with your needs in mind. If you or a loved one suffered an injury to the neck as a result of someone else’s negligence, we have the legal resources and experience to help you maximize your potential financial recovery. Our Los Angeles-based attorney will negotiate with reckless drivers, defective product manufacturers, negligent doctors, insurance providers, employers, and any other parties who may be liable for your injuries. If you don’t get the settlement offer you deserve, we’ll take your case all the way through trial. We stand by your side until you get the compensation you are owed.
Common Neck Injuries and Symptoms
Neck injuries often result from traffic accidents, slip and falls, and other negligence-based incidents. Depending upon the nature and circumstances of your accident, your injury can range from temporary to permanent and from mildly numbing to chronically painful and debilitating. At Morris Law Firm, we help accident victims get the medical care and the compensation they deserve for all manner of neck injuries, including the following:
- Strains and sprains
- Herniated cervical disc
- Pinched nerves or pinched discs
- Cervical dislocation
- Fractured vertebrae
- Cervical Spondylosis (arthritis)
If you’ve been injured in an accident and you believe you may have a neck injury, it’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible. If left untreated, your condition may worsen and lead to more functional limitations and other consequences. Some of the symptoms commonly associated with neck injuries include:
- Stiffness in the neck
- Pain in neck or shoulders
- Cognitive troubles including memory loss, impaired concentration, and mood swings
- Trouble sleeping
- Burning or prickling in the neck or spine
- Limited range of mobility
Compensation Available After a Neck/Cervical Injury
If you’ve been hurt in a car crash, in a slip and fall, or otherwise as a result of someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to significant compensation. At Morris Law Firm, we’ll help maximize the value of your claim and seek all available damages, including compensation for the following:
- Past and future medical costs
- Lost income
- Disability and loss of future earning ability
- Nursing and physical therapy costs
- Prosthetics such as crutches or wheelchairs
- Psychological trauma
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
If the defendant’s conduct was especially egregious, such as if they were driving drunk or if they injured you intentionally, you might be able to recover punitive damages on top of the other compensatory damages. Punitive damages are awarded to punish bad actors for exceptionally bad conduct and can multiply the award available for an injured plaintiff. Talk to an experienced neck injury lawyer at Morris Law Firm to find out what damages may be available in your case and how to build your strongest case for a comprehensive recovery.
