Neck Injury Claims

Hire a Lafayette, LA Personal Injury Lawyer

The neck is one of the most functionally-vital and sensitive areas in the body, containing muscles and nerves that play a role in facilitating a wide range of motions. Any damage to the neck can cause excruciating pain and greatly hinder a person’s mobility and function. If the spinal cord is affected, certain neck injuries can cause lifelong debilitation, permanently reduce a person’s quality of life and interfere with their ability to work. If you have suffered a neck injury in an auto accident, 18 wheeler accident, motorcycle accident or an offshore accident caused by another party’s carelessness, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation by filing a personal injury claim with the assistance of a skilled Lafayette, Louisiana injury attorney from Duck Law Firm, LLC.

Causes and Symptoms of Neck Injuries

Any sort of accident that causes a person’s neck to make an unnatural motion or strike a rigid object at high velocity can result in damage to the neck’s tendons, vertebrae, and musculature. Relatively minor accidents can cause serious and permanent neck injuries. Minor neck injuries only result in damage to the soft tissues in the neck, while serious injuries such as herniated discs and cervical vertebrae fractures can cause quadriplegia or even death. While minor sprains and muscle strains can heal over time with immobilization and therapy, serious whiplash and cervical fractures from blunt-force trauma can require extensive surgeries and months of physical therapy to be treated.

Neck injuries commonly result from the following:

Due to the myriad of nerve endings in the neck, neck injuries can cause individuals to experience symptoms in multiple areas of the body. Signs of a neck injury include pain that worsens with neck movement, headaches, tingling or weakness in the neck, arms, shoulders or upper back, difficulty sleeping, and dizziness. If you have been involved in an accident and are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is vital you seek medical help immediately.
