Neck injuries can either be very minor or life changing. No matter the outcome by having me as your attorney I will help you hold those accountable for your or your loved one’s injuries.

- Rear end collisions
- Muscle strain

How do I know if I have a neck injury?
When it comes to a neck injury it could be small or it could be severe. These symptoms can come later than the accident and not right away. Some symptoms include:
- In ability to move your head without pain
- Neck spasms
- Neck tightness
- Neck pain for a long period of time

This is when one of the bones in your neck break. These bones are stacked on each other and very small. The neck bones are considered the seven top vertebrates of your spine. This could lead to a long recovery that may include rehabilitation.
What is pinched nerve?
A pinch nerve can be very painful and debilitating. Sometimes with just rest it will heal. But a pinched nerve can cause permanent damage. With a severe pinched nerve can result in physical therapy and can limit your everyday activities.
What damages can I recover?
If someone else’s negligence caused you to have an injury you can claim compensatory damages against the liable party. Compensatory damages include economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damage claim can include medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earnings, home modifications, and non-medical needs.
Non- economic damages include pain and suffering, loss of consortium, damage to reputation, emotional distress, and loss of companionship.
You may also be able to recover punitive damages. Punitive damages can be recoverable if the liable party acted malice or fraud. These may include the liable party being under the influence while driving, fleeing from the police, and/or reckless driving.
How do you calculate my damages?
Though I cannot guarantee a certain outcome, but by having me as your attorney I will guarantee the best possible outcome out there.
I will be looking at these factors to get the total amount of compensation you are owed:
- The amount spent for your past and future treatment
- The amount of your income that will be lost while you’re recovering
- How much your injury will affect your future
- The affect your injury will have on your relationships with others
- They cost of any home care you are going to need
How will you prove my damages?
You may think that those documents or photographs may not strengthen your case, but they actually make your case even stronger. It may be obvious that the liable party caused your injury but you are going to need those photographs and documents to make your case even stronger. Some examples that will make your case stronger is:
- Medical documents
- Any medical imaging
- Photographs of the accident scene and your injuries
- Police report
- Proof of loss benefits
- Any receipts that show any expenses related to your injury
Should I file for worker’s compensation?
Workers’ compensation is the company’s insurance that gives benefits to the employees who are injured on the job. These benefits include medical bills, lost wages compensation, and help with disability. Like every other insurance they too want to avoid paying a huge cost and pay you what you earn.
By having me as your attorney I will help you maximize the amount of benefit you need and deserve. I will not stop until you get it.
Let me help you get all the compensation you deserve because you don’t deserve anything less!
