Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

Neck injuries can cause many problems, from pain and soft tissue sprains to broken vertebrae, herniated discs, or spinal cord damage. If you’ve been in an accident, a neck injury can leave you unable to work and earn income. Medical bills can pile up fast. Our personal injury attorney in Los Angeles can help by filing a lawsuit against the party at fault for the accident. Able to fight the insurance companies, we charge no upfront fees and you pay us only if you win.

What Is a Neck Injury?

The cervical spine comprises the seven vertebrae of the neck. It runs from the base of the skull to the thoracic vertebrae. Spongy structures called spinal discs sit in between each bone, enabling the neck and spine to flex. Neck trauma can affect spinal discs and nerves that control the arms, neck, and upper body.

Whiplash is a common form of neck injury. Often triggered by a rear impact, it is caused by a hyperextension of the head and neck. A whiplash injury is usually not life threatening. Most people, especially those in a minor accident, recovery without permanent issues, but some experience chronic pain for years after an injury.

There are many reasons a person can suffer a neck injury. Motor vehicle accidents account for about 37% of cases in the U.S. The overall costs are staggering; whiplash alone has an economic cost in the U.S. of up to $30 billion a year, which can include medical care, disability, lost productivity, sick leave, and legal action. Then there’s the human toll. Roughly 6,500 people die from neck injuries and 11,500 suffer significant spinal cord damage annually.

Types of Neck Injuries

General symptoms include headache, pain, or localized or widespread numbness and bruising. Our personal injury lawyers often see a lot of car accident victims with neck and back pain. The most common neck injuries include:

Abnormal motion can damage ligaments, muscles, facet capsules, and other soft tissues. Without proper treatment, chronic whiplash symptoms may persist.

The soft tissues in the neck can stretch or tear. Oftentimes there are no obvious signs of a neck sprain, but even localized trauma can affect you physical and psychological health.

An injury to muscles responsible for chin to chest (flexion), ear to shoulder (lateral flexion), eyes to ceiling (extension), and rotational motions.

Also called cervical radiculopathy, a nerve pinched by a herniated disc or bone spur does not relay electrical signals properly, causing muscle weakness, numbness, or pain.

The harder outer shell, or annulus, tears, causing a jelly-like material called the nucleus pulposus to squeeze out and push against spinal nerves.

Broken bones in the vertebrae column can have serious consequences. Recovery is often long and requires extensive rehabilitation.

A narrowing of the channel where the spinal cord and other nerves are located, which may be caused by bone fragments or a ruptured disc.

Facet joints, behind the spinal column and discs, prevent abnormal motion; injuries can cause pain, muscle spasms, and facet locking syndrome.

The spinal cord can be severed by an impact, constricted by damaged structures, or compressed by a hematoma, causing partial or complete paralysis.

Accidents That Can Cause Neck Injuries

FAQs: What To Do After Your Neck Injury

Questions people often ask our Los Angeles personal injury attorney include:

As part of a legal settlement, you may be reimbursed for medical bills and the cost of medical treatments, as well as lost income following the accident. You may also be compensated for personal property damage, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life.

If your neck injury was caused by a car accident that wasn’t your fault, a negligent driver may be required to pay for medical treatments and expenses. The more evidence there is from the accident scene, the more our car accident attorney can help.

If you’re in a car accident, neck pain should be taken seriously. Visit the emergency room for an examination and make an appointment with your chiropractor. Serious injuries may take time to manifest, and the cost of medical care is important to factor in when seeking compensation.

It’s not uncommon to have sudden neck pain after an injury, even days later. Adrenaline and other hormones are released after trauma, which can mask the pain. It’s therefore important to be examined by a doctor to be on the safe side.

A car accident attorney knows your legal rights and will fight for them. They know all the facts you need to gather. Also, insurance companies are represented by skilled law firms, but our personal injury attorney in Los Angeles knows the tricks of the trade and can negotiate on your behalf, so you get the settlement you deserve.

nobody ever tells you how scary getting into an accident can be. thankfully I had the law office of Jacob emrani on my side! Denise and bamba took care of everything! Jacob and his team fought my own insurance because my accident was a hit and run. Jacob fought and fought and my insurance company paid and I’m getting a new car from my settlement!

In the past year, I

In the past year, I was involved in two personal injury accidents. Auto and Pedestrian. At first I went to different law firm and signed up. After couple weeks in, that law firm rushed me through the process , did nothing and took $7600 of my settlement money and want me to settled under six months. I didn’t follow through and found out Jacob Emrani law firm with more experiences. This firm helped me to settled with larger settlements. Jacob Emrani and his team support me every steps of the way. For those involved in personal injuries, please understand that you must have patience for best results and Jacob and his team is your go to firm. Small law firm can’t do what this team does. Average people without any knowledges of auto accident, insurance carriers, and/or medical experiences are too hastily assumed that everything happens with a snap of a finger or I want it now. Well, it doesn’t. Rome wasn’t built in a day and so as this process. Court case takes even longer. People with negative reviews is because they don’t understand the system and all they do is blames and complaint or fired the firm that working hard for them behind close doors. When you quit and go to another firm, all you do is waste more time, waste more of your settlement reward to another firm in fees and costs. ALl you have to do is be patience and Jacob team will takes care of you. These case managers handles couple of dozen of case everyday and all the time. These attorney work their butts off on the phone and in court fight for you to get each client the best settlement. One case are not with the same result to next case. So when people calls into the office all day long for status, demands for answer, or angry because not moving with the speed the person want does not mean case managers or attorneys ignoring you. Email them, fastest response time. They only moves as fast as insurance carriers, medicals providers, and hospitals. These insurance companies are not just going to cough up money to you just because you got hit. They need time to investigate, this process takes time, case managers only goes as fast as these people move, they fights against these adjusters for you to get the best settlement for your case. So, please be PATIENCE!!! and give them time to work on your case. DON”T QUIT. Don’t go to another firm just because you have no patience and all you do is throw your settlement money away to another attorney and your case literally start from scratch, more time waste. Jacob Emrani, his attorneys, case managers, and the all the staffs are a great team and with tremendous experiences. Put your trust in them and be patience. Final Results. $$$$$$$.
