Neck Injury Attorney

If you are suffering with a neck injury, you are not alone. Chronic neck pain is the third most common chronic pain condition in the United States. Many of these neck pain cases are related to external factors that are outside your control, through slip and fall trauma, accidents in the car, or workplace accidents. No matter the cause, the physical suffering of neck pain and injury can be severe. The spinal systems have extensive connectivity to other parts of the body, and just one tiny spinal misalignment can have extremely significant impacts. Apart from limited mobility, pain, and challenges managing everyday tasks, there are other negative aftereffects to neck injuries. Many people experience anxiety or depression following a harmful accident and may have trouble sleeping or focusing when awake. Plus, rest and recovery time necessitate by neck injury often demand missing work and life obligations, leading to financial, familial and other personal life stresses on top of medical concerns.

Causes of Neck Injuries

Events, Risk Factors and Resulting Neck Injury Types 

Understanding the causes and complexities of neck injuries can be exceedingly difficult. The variety of damaging events, particular physical risk factors, and frequency of opportunities for injury for a given individual create a unique and complicated basis for diagnosis of each case. Additionally, the prevalence of late-onset symptoms adds to the difficulty in assessing the physiological, environmental, and circumstantial factors that were present at the time of the injury, and thus the root cause. The most common causes of neck pain include pulled or torn muscles or ligaments. These types of injuries can occur from normal course of life activities, particularly due to the flexible nature of the neck muscles and their constant support for the weight of the head. Often though, a serious accident event occurs resulting in pain and damage. A few of the major contributing factors to neck pain and neck injury are listed and described below:

CATALYTIC EVENTS FOR NECK INJURIES

  • Slip and fall – slick flooring, icy surfaces, deteriorating stairs, broken walkways, poor lighting, etc. 
  • Workplace – falls from heights, crush injuries beneath or between objects, fire & explosions.
  • Automobile accident – cars, trucks, and 18 wheelers, motorcycles, scooters and more.

RISK FACTORS FOR NECK INJURIES

  • Age – 30-50 is the range when neck pain often first occurs, risk increases with aging 
  • Genetics – family history of injury or disease to the spine and related systems 
  • Body composition – changes to weight, especially rapid changes 
  • Sex – Females make up 59% of healthcare visits for neck pain and cervical disorder, and 62% of visits for neck injury generally.  
  • Fitness level – loss of muscle mass through illness or lifestyle restrictions 
  • Occupational – heavy lifting, dangerous workplaces 
  • Backpack – heavy loads to carry, especially for smaller, less developed bodies of children

Types of Neck Injuries

Neck pain is extremely common, accounting for 21.4 million patient visits to doctors and ERs in 2013. With this prevalence and the wide variety of causes there is naturally an array of neck pain injury types. Most fall into two main categories and one subcategory: 

  • Acute – short term, lasting a few days to weeks. Typically, this type is related to mechanical injuries, meaning it is caused by issues or disruptions in the way that the musculoskeletal and nervous systems in the neck, back, and spine work together.  
    • Subacute – specifically defined as pain lasting 4-12 weeks. 
  • Chronic – longer term, specifically lasting 12 weeks or longer. It is also technically considered more persistent as it may continue past the treatment of the pain’s source or cause. Around 20-40% of those who suffer acute neck pain report a development into chronic neck pain at the one-year mark.  

The specific injuries to the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems which fall into the above categories have been identified and studied extensively by the medical community, though there is much farther to go before we have comprehensive and definitive understandings of these systems and the related pain. Neck pain can be caused by various other conditions and diseases, but the injuries most related to personal injury claims are those which are mechanical in nature (affecting the spine and its components, nerves and muscle). These are the types of injuries that often result from the causes and risks of the previous section (motor vehicle accident, workplace injury, etc.), and some particular examples include: 

  • Sprains – very common for acute neck pain, caused by tearing or overstretching ligaments, usually through overexertion via twisting or heavy lifting 
  • Strains – also very common for acute neck pain, with similar actions as the root cause, and are result of tearing in the muscle or tendon 
  • Pinched nerve  compression of a nerve of the spinal cord in the neck area, resulting in pain travelling down arms. 
  • Herniated or bulging or ruptured disc – related to compression and damage of the cartilaginous disks between the vertebrae, including displacement, bulging or rupture. Can result from overuse fatigue or impact injury. 
  • Radiculopathy – inflammation, compression or injury to nerve root, sometimes from a herniated or ruptured disk. The resulting pressure causes tingling, numbness or pain out into the areas of the body related to that nerve.  
  • Spondylolisthesis – occurs where a vertebra of the spine slips out of alignment, pinching nerves, causing pain and numbness. 
  • Spinal stenosis – occurs where the spinal column narrows, putting pressure on the nerves and spinal cord, resulting in numbness or pain, and often more complicated sensory issues over time 
  • Traumatic injury – loose category of damaged tendons, ligaments and/or muscle, often from the type of events named above, and resulting in pain, weakness, numbness, and other side effects. 

Symptoms & Complications of Neck Injuries

Please follow the advice of your doctor or medical advisor with any neck injury consult, particularly if you are experiencing, new, worsening, more severe symptoms and/or any of the complication warning signs that follow. Especially if you are experiencing muscle spasms or are unable to touch your chin to your chest due to neck pain and stiffness – consult a doctor immediately. Thompson Law’s ultimate desire for every case and claim is the fullest possible recovery and the best possible compensation. The chances of this success are much greater if you carefully follow the advice of medical professionals and your attorney. If you are in need of any advice or assistance on matters of your recovery and rightful compensation, feel free to reach out anytime, 24/7. Thompson Law legal experts are standing by to help you.  

SYMPTOMS OF A NECK INJURY 

  • Stiffness, tightness, aches, pressure
  • Muscle spasms
  • Shooting pains in neck, sometimes down into shoulders and arms, or up into headaches
  • Stabbing pains in neck, similar patterns as above
  • Pain radiating outward in the body
  • Pain that becomes worse with bending, lifting, sitting
  • Pain that improves with reclining
  • Secondary side effects – trouble sleeping, headaches, nausea, trouble focusing 

COMPLICATIONS & WARNING SIGNS OF NECK INJURIES 

  • Fever
  • Severe headache
  • Bowel or bladder issues
  • Pain does not improve with rest
  • Area of pain spreads or increases
  • Auxiliary injuries, i.e. a slipped disk causes a pinched nerve or muscle strain
  • Weakness, tingling, numbness or other new / increased sensations begin
  • Nerve damage
  • Opioid pain medication dependence
  • Depression, anxiety, trauma and insomnia

Diagnosis & Treatment of Neck Injuries

While there remain many mysteries to unravel about the nervous system and spine, diagnoses of neck injuries can often be successfully accomplished by utilizing available resources like physical examinations, medical history, and current technology. Some of the more frequently used types of tech and testing for these diagnostic investigations include: 

  • X-Rays 
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scans  
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs)  
  • Supplemental technologies to these types of scans include myelograms and discography, which utilize ink injections into the spinal canal or into specific disks to more clearly articulate the extent of the damage on the resulting imagery.  
  • Relatedly, bone scans involve a controlled amount of radioactive material being injected into the bloodstream. The body is then scanned for abnormal areas of blood-flow and irregular pooling delineated by the injection material.  
  • For issues of the muscles, electrodiagnostics can be used to test stimulation of different nerves and muscles. Types of electrodiagnostics include: 
  • Electromyography (EMG)  
  • Evoked potential (EP) studies  
  • Nerve conduction studies (NCS)  
  • Testing for distinct responses with these procedures can help specialists determine the origin and severity of the injury at hand.  
  • Ultrasound imaging also can show damage to muscle using sound wave mapping inside the body to create visualizations.  
  • Blood tests are also used on occasion, largely to rule out types of infection, inflammation or other sources of pain.  

Fortunately, there are a number of therapies and treatments to cure, or at least significantly ease, acute and chronic neck pain. Because the spine and its related systems are so intertwined with other structures of the body, mobility improvements and decreased neck pain often lead to other positive side effects and life improvements.    

  • Self / home care – alternating ice packs and heat packs, rest, recline, over the counter (OTC) pain relievers 
  • Therapy – physical therapy, chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, behavioral therapy 
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) – electrodes are placed near the pain points, delivering relief via tiny electrical impulses.  
  • Short-term immobilization – soft collar to rest muscles. 
  • Traction – weights and pulleys apparatus gently stretches the neck, often targeted to relieve nerve root irritation. 
  • Medication – including muscle relaxants, NSAIDs, and tricyclic antidepressants 
  • Surgery – typically necessary for very severe cases where other treatments have not succeeded, relating to structural issues, i.e. spinal stenosis or slipped discs 
    • Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion
    • Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement
    • Spinal Decompression
      • Anterior Cervical Corporectomy
      • Posterior Cervical Laminectomy
      • Posterior Cervical Laminoplasty
      • Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy
      • Cervical Laminectomy

Financial Impacts of Neck Injuries 

Financial costs of neck injury are extremely significant because chronic neck pain is the third most common chronic pain condition in the United States and fourth most common cause of disability globally. Medical expenses, missed work, insurance costs and more add up to astounding dollar figures on local and global scales. US costs associated with pain and pain management are estimated to be between $560 and $635 billion (in 2010 dollars), and 15% of reported pain is associated with the neck. This would mean neck pain in that year accounted for $84-$95.3 billion of the total.  

  • More than 650,000 spinal surgical procedures are performed annually in the United States  
  • The average hospital stay in the United States costs over $10,700, and the 7th most common reason for this type of stay is spinal problems including spondylosis and intervertebral disc disorders. 
  • Between 1995 and 2005 there was a 65% increase in year-over-year costs related to chronic neck pain, with the total cost in the last year of the study totaling about $86 billion 
  • Cervical disorders made up the majority of neck pain related healthcare visits in 2013. And cervical disc disorders were responsible for just about a third (32%) of hospitalizations.  
  • In an article from a Texas Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon, the costs of spinal surgeries were illuminated – and jaw-dropping: 
    • Herniated Disc Procedures: $20,000 – $50,000 
    • Laminectomy for cervical spinal stenosis: $50,000 – $90,000 
    • Spinal Fusion for slipped vertebrae or spinal instability: $80,000 – $150,000+ 
    • These costs are for surgery alone, not including recovery time with lost wages, plus recovery equipment and medications, physical therapy, and more.  

Treatment and Recovery After a Whiplash Injury

In some cases, symptoms can be managed by home treatments to help with pain, discomfort, and disorientation. In others, doctors and chiropractors may prescribe specific medical treatments or therapies. Advised treatment is based on the severity of the neck damage, body composition and tolerances, age, health, prior or concurrent injuries, medications, and patient preferences.  

Standard recommendations for treatment across the medical community include: 

  • Ice applications for the first 24 hours 
  • Cervical collar, with limited use (less than 3 hours at a time)  
  • Gentle, active movement after 24 hours 
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications 
  • Muscle relaxing medications 
  • Physical therapy 

Still, some disagreement exists in the medical community around whiplash, and particularly around the treatment that should take place in the first 24-48 hours after the injury is sustained. The core of the debate has to do with how much motion is advisable in this period. Some experts maintain a belief that wearing a soft collar and limiting movement protects the neck from further damage, while others suggest that some muscle movement is beneficial to a quicker and easier recovery. 

Fortunately, for most people whiplash pain is corrected or resolved within a couple weeks to a few months. Still, lingering pain may persist for longer. There is a lack of consensus in medical research as to the duration of symptoms and injury. Some studies have indicated that 25-40% of patients experience symptoms through the 1-year mark, and others indicate about 40% of patients experience pain past the 7-year mark. Around the measurables of these studies there are a lot of remaining questions about what patients can expect in their journey to recovery.  

Despite the ongoing scientific study, it is extremely important to trust the advice of your doctor and follow their guidance for your specific recovery, and it may be helpful to keep in mind that there is a chance that your injury may be more impactful and long lasting than initially anticipated. While you focus on your health, turn to your compassionate and expert legal team at Thompson Law. Ryan “The Lion” Thompson and his staff will fight the insurance companies and your accident’s at-fault parties for you. Their commitment to the optimum outcome and your maximum rightful compensation drives everything they do. Being patient with the recovery process and taking good care of yourself is essential.  

Financial Impacts of Neck Injuries 

Financial costs of neck injury are extremely significant because chronic neck pain is the third most common chronic pain condition in the United States and fourth most common cause of disability globally. Medical expenses, missed work, insurance costs and more add up to astounding dollar figures on local and global scales. US costs associated with pain and pain management are estimated to be between $560 and $635 billion (in 2010 dollars), and 15% of reported pain is associated with the neck. This would mean neck pain in that year accounted for $84-$95.3 billion of the total.

FAQs

What If the Other Vehicle Was an 18 Wheeler?2018-11-18T21:59:58-06:00

If the other vehicle involved in your crash was an 18 wheeler or another commercial vehicle, call an attorney immediately. Companies who own commercial vehicles and 18 wheelers often have their own team of investigators who will arrive on the scene immediately working on the driver’s defense case. The sooner you involve an attorney of your own, the better your chances are of receiving compensation for your injuries and damages.

What Are Negligent Actions by Drivers of 18 Wheelers and Commercial Vehicles?2018-11-18T22:00:33-06:00

Drivers of 18 wheelers and other commercial vehicles are held to a higher standard of driving. If they neglect to turn on their flashing lights when they’re on the side of the road, don’t move over far enough onto the shoulder, don’t properly secure their cargo, or don’t leave enough clearance when making a left turn, and in many other cases, the driver could be considered negligent. If you want to know if the driver of the 18 wheeler involved in your case was negligent, contact a personal injury attorney.

The Trucking Company Just Called Me About My Accident. Are They Really Trying to Help Me?2018-11-18T22:01:15-06:00

No. They aren’t trying to help you. They’re trying to protect their drivers and reduce their costs. That’s why they have a team of lawyers ready to flock to the scene of any accident. Don’t accept any form of compensation until you talk to your attorney. Most victims of 18 wheeler crashes sustain more injuries than victims of normal crashes, and can receive higher compensation as a result. Don’t let them fool you into accepting a smaller payout for your injuries and damages. Your injuries could require years of medications and surgeries, and the company will try everything to avoid making huge payouts. Call your attorney and let them do the negotiating on your behalf.

I’ve Been in an Accident With an 18 Wheeler. Who’s Responsible – The Company or The Driver?2020-01-23T12:18:56-06:00

Many times it can be the fault of both the driver and the 18 wheeler company. Truck drivers can be at fault just like any other motorist for failing to follow the rules of the road. However, 18 wheeler companies and their employees have federal laws they are required to follow that govern things like how many consecutive hours of driving are allowableminimum numbers of resting hours between jobs, when and how to do inspections, and so on. Also, the 18 wheeler companies have specific duties and responsibilities regarding training their drivers and supervising their work. When trucking companies refuse to follow standard rules, regulations, and practices regarding the commercial and transportation industry, people can get hurt and companies can be found at fault for contributing to or causing the collision through their irresponsible decisions.  An experienced 18-wheeler accident lawyer will know what violations to look for and how to hold both the driver and the company responsible for endangering the motoring public on the roads we all share.

I was just in an accident. What do I need to do first?2020-01-23T15:44:56-06:00

Being in a wreck, especially on the highway, can be a terrifying experience. Remember these 6 steps to make sure you are safe and to help preserve your legal case right from the start: 

  1. GET SAFE. Stop your vehicle/move it to a safe place if you are able. Stay close to the scene without obstructing traffic. Activate your emergency flashing lights to prevent other cars from striking you. 
  2. CALL 9-1-1. If you are seriously injured, be sure you request an ambulance when you call. A police report may become critical evidence in determining liability in your case. The police will respond to wrecks involving injuries but may not send a unit for cases involving property damage only.  
  3. TAKE PHOTOS. If you are able to safely do so, take photos of your vehicle, the other vehicle (including the license plate), and the surrounding scene of the accident. You will also want to photograph the other driver’s license and insurance card.  
  4. GATHER INFO. After making sure you and passengers are okay, exchange contact information and insurance information with the other driver.  
  5. FIND WITNESSES. If there are witnesses to the accident, take down their names and contact information. Their statements may help resolve any liability disputes.  
  6. CALL THOMPSON LAW. The experienced team of attorneys, investigators and paralegals are ready to assist you right away. You can even call us to meet you at the scene of an accident.  
I was a passenger in an accident. Can I still claim damages?2020-01-23T13:01:51-06:00

Yes! Passengers in auto accidents are entitled to make claims for their damages and injuries too.  As a negligence-free passenger, who you make a claim against (one or both drivers and their insurance companies), and what coverages are available (third-party liability, first-party coverages, and/or personal injury protection), depends on the specific facts and circumstances of the car wreck.  Injured passengers should call the personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law to assist in navigating these complex issues so that they may receive the fair compensation they deserve.    

After an accident, how do my medical expenses and other damages get paid?2020-01-23T13:02:50-06:00

An insurance company will not pay medical expenses or other damages as they come due; rather, after they have accepted liability, the insurance company will make a one-time, lump-sum final payment only at the end of your case.  Dealing with medical expenses, and obtaining the proper medical care, after an accident can be tricky. But it does not have to be! Call the personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law, who can explain how to deal with the “day-of” hospital bills, how to continue to receive the care you need, and ultimately how to recover an appropriate settlement that takes care of your bills from the incident as well as fair and just compensation for you. 

How long is the case process?2020-01-23T13:03:34-06:00

Let’s be honest: this isn’t a legal show on TV and your case will not settle in the next hour – or even tomorrow.  The true answer is: it depends.  We find that most cases settle within 7-10 months from date of incident; but the timeframe in your case could be shorter or longer depending on: the facts and circumstances of the accident; the length of time it takes you to complete medical treatment; and the character of the insurance company, or companies, involved in your case.  In the event that your case cannot settle pre-litigation and it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit, that process alone can take 1 to 2 years due to the court system and legal process necessary to prepare for trial.  But because so much of the timeline depends on the facts and circumstances of your unique case, call Thompson Law today to discuss.
