Most motor vehicle accidents involve a jarring or rotational force that can easily cause the neck to snap forward and back or side to side. This sudden, violent action, often referred to as whiplash can severely damage the vertebrae or the spinal cord they protect. If you or a loved one is a victim of a neck injury caused by the negligent actions of another individual, you might be able to recover monetary damages for medical bills and lost wages through a personal injury lawsuit.
At Wocl Leydon, LLC, our Connecticut personal injury attorneys have extensive experience guiding clients through the legal process. We fight to ensure full and fair compensation for our clients and stand beside them throughout the process. Our goal is to settle a matter through negotiation, but, if necessary, we can effectively represent our clients through trial.
Neck Injuries After Accidents
The cervical vertebrae, which comprise the neck, surround and protect the spinal cord. Any damage to this area of the spine can have devastating effects up and down the body. Whiplash, which is a connective tissue injury caused by the unnatural strain of the neck muscles, can lead to chronic pain, swelling, or muscle spasms.
In a study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Professor John Cavanaugh found that neck sprains are the most common type of injury that results from a motor vehicle accident. He estimated that nearly 900,000 emergency room visits per year are related to this type of injury alone. It is crucial to contact a skilled attorney immediately. It is likely that you will require multiple doctor visits, physical therapy, or even a reduction in work capacity. All of these factors will negatively affect your finances. With a knowledgeable attorney fighting on your behalf, it might be possible to stabilize your finances while you work to get healthy again.
