How Serious Are Neck Injuries? A New York City Neck Injury Attorney Explains
Your neck contains the top vertebrae of your spinal cord (cervical vertebrae) as well as bones, soft tissue and ligaments. Unfortunately, the neck is prone to injury in car accidents, slip and falls and workplace accidents.
Treating neck injuries can cost millions of dollars if your spinal vertebrae are damaged or if you suffer a broken neck. You may also experience ongoing mobility limitations, even from minor neck injuries. You need to have your costs and losses covered if someone else was responsible for your injury, and a New York City neck injury law firm can help you make your claim and get full compensation.

What You Need To Know About Neck Injuries
Neck injuries include:
- Herniated discs
- Damage to the cervical vertebrae/spinal cord damage
- Cervical dislocation
- Broken bones
The full extent of a neck injury may not be immediately apparent. For example, whiplash symptoms generally do not appear for between 24 and 48 hours. Further, many cases of whiplash can heal on their own, but others will cause persistent chronic or acute pain.
Because you may not know right away how badly you were hurt, it is important to seek immediate medical help after an accident. It is also important not to settle your neck injury case until you learn the severity of your injuries. Don’t sign any settlement papers until you have spoken to a New York City neck injury law firm.
