Neck Injury Attorneys in San Luis Obispo, CA
Neck Injury Victims Can Count On James McKiernan Lawyers
If you were recently involved in a serious accident that cause neck injuries, then chances are that these injuries are affecting your everyday life. Some of these injuries can heal over time and with the assistance of rehabilitation, but some of these injuries are life-long and will leave you unable to participate in tasks that you need to be an independent member of society. If someone’s negligence has left you injured or limited your capacity, you deserve to recover from those damages.
Accident victims commonly suffer from painful neck injuries that affect their lives at work, at home and with their families. Neck injuries are one of the most dangerous and life altering injuries, and when left without medical treatment, usually only worsen and even lead to paralysis or death. At James McKiernan Lawyers, we have represented countless neck injury victims just like you. Whether you were hurt in a car, boating or construction accident, our attorneys can help. You deserve fair compensation and fair representation in the eyes of the law.
What Are Common Symptoms and Treatments for Neck Injuries?
You may feel a range of symptoms depending on the nature and severity of the accident and how your injuries were treated following the accident. Headache, neck pain, dizziness, stiffness, weakness, numbness and tingling sensations often accompany neck injuries. If you avoid treatment for your symptoms, there is a possibility that your injuries could lead to a long-term problem or even death. Fortunately, there are various treatments available to help ease the symptoms and heal the causes, such as:
- Pain medications — Prescription medications and muscle relaxants are used to ease suffering.
- Neck brace — A soft collar or brace helps hold the neck still to allow it to heal.
- Injections — Hydrocortisone shots help reduce pain.
- Massage — Specially designed neck massages also assist in pain management.
- Physical therapy — Physical therapy offers healing methods.
- Surgery — A cervical laminoplasty, spinal fusion, cervical radiculopathy or radiofrequency neurotomy are examples of neck surgeries. (Surgery is only used in severe cases.)
These medical treatments are often expensive and insurance is not always available to cover your damages. In the instance where the accident was due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation from the liable party.
