Have You Suffered A Neck Injury In A Preventable Accident?

Trauma to the neck may result in soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash or a more serious spinal cord injury. Although many people do not associate the spinal cord with the neck, the bones in the neck are in fact the cervical portion of the spinal cord. If the cervical nerves become damaged, it is not uncommon for the victim to become paralyzed, either as a paraplegic or a quadriplegic.

Cervical spinal cord injuries are the most serious, and victims may require breathing tubes. Other consequences of a neck injury may be:

  • Loss of feeling in the limbs
  • Bladder and bowel incontinence
  • Loss of motor control
  • Chronic pain

These injuries will dramatically change a person's life. Being unable to work, walk or even care for yourself may be emotionally trying and physically exhausting.

Catastrophic injuries often have repercussions on family and friends as well. If your neck or cervical spinal cord was damaged in an auto accident, swimming accident, construction accident or any other type of blunt trauma caused by the negligence of another, you deserve maximum compensation for your injuries and pain.
