Unwilling to Settle for Less “After my car accident my injuries weren’t getting any better. I knew the treatment I needed would be expensive, but I didn’t want to seem money-hungry or vindictive, so it was hard for me to call a lawyer. Working with the insurance company was very frustrating and I wasn’t getting what I needed, but then a friend recommended Christensen & Hymas. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Mindi kept good records of everything and always stayed in touch. My attorney, Matt, helped me understand how everything worked. He helped me avoid the mistake of settling for less than what I needed.”LaVernae
Learn How to Deal with a Neck Injury
Neck injuries resulting from car crashes are common—there are over 270,000 whiplash injuries reported every year, costing Americans over $8.5 billion. For more interesting neck injury facts and stats, read this report. But just because they are common doesn’t mean they should be ignored or brushed aside. Neck injuries can range from something as simple as a stiff neck to something as severe and life-changing as paralysis or a permanent disability. Not only will you feel pain and discomfort right after the injury, but you could experience life-long pain and limitations. That is why we are passionate about helping those with neck injuries understand their rights and the resources available to them.
How do I know when to seek treatment?
The damage from a neck injury doesn’t have to be visible. In fact, it rarely is. That’s why only a doctor can accurately diagnose the type and severity of a neck injury. Since neck injuries can be long-lasting and can cause a number of other symptoms (like headaches, numbness, nausea, and pain), it is always important to see your doctor if you think you might have a neck injury.
What are some common neck injuries?
While there are many types of neck injuries, most fall into four categories:
- Broken Neck
- Slipped Disc
- Stiff Neck
If you think you may have suffered a neck injury, be sure to see a physician or other medical professional to get the help you need so you can focus on healing.
