How Neck Injuries Occur
Like any other catastrophic injury, neck injuries can occur as a result of a variety of accidents. Even a seemingly minor accident, such as a “fender bender,” can lead to severe whiplash which may affect the victim’s everyday life.
Some of the most common causes of neck injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
Neck injuries range in type and severity, from soft tissue neck injuries to those that affect the spinal cord and central nervous system. Common neck injuries include muscle strains, neck sprains, “pinched” nerves, whiplash and whiplash-associated disorders, herniated/bulging discs, fractures, and more.
Our Firm Will Fight for You
Regardless of the type of neck injury you have sustained or how it occurred, you are likely facing many challenges ahead. Neck injuries can require extensive medical treatment, which can be very costly. You may be out of work, either temporarily or permanently, placing additional financial strain on yourself and your family. And, of course, there are numerous physical and emotional challenges associated with being involved in a major accident, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
At the Law Office of James E. Farmer, LLC, we understand what you are facing. We also understand how to take on insurance companies and other liable parties. These entities do not have your best interests in mind—but we do. Our award-winning Waldorf neck injury attorneys are prepared to fight for you every step of the way.
