If you have experienced a neck injury because of the negligence of another party, you could be entitled to compensation. You can pursue multiple types of damages, including awards that help cover:
Treating a neck injury can quickly become an expensive endeavor. If your injury is severe, you might require a hospital stay. If there are complications and the effects of your neck injury continue to linger, you may have to worry about future medical bills. You can pursue damages that help cover these medical bills and alleviate some of the financial hardship facing your family.
If a car accident caused your injury, you might have damaged property to repair or replace. You can pursue compensation that can help you pay for repairs or a replacement vehicle, whether you were driving a car or riding a bicycle at the time of the accident.
If your neck injury keeps you out of work, you might miss paychecks and experience financial difficulties. If your neck injury leads to continued complications, your future ability to work might also be affected. Monetary awards can help cover these lost wages and make up for your lost earning potential.
Loss of Enjoyment
A neck injury can prevent you from enjoying an activity that you once loved. If you are no longer able to participate in a sport or hobby due to your injury, that loss of enjoyment should be considered when compensation is calculated.

Common Causes of Neck Injury
Certain accident types are more likely to cause neck injuries than others. Some of the common causes include:
A motor vehicle accident can easily cause neck injuries, even if the collision occurs at low speed. Getting hit from behind can cause whiplash, a neck injury caused by the quick back and forth movement of your head. This type of neck injury can have lasting effects and continue to cause pain even after treatment.
Slip and Falls
When you enter a store or other place of business, you assume that the premises are being kept safe and that slipping, tripping, and falling hazards have been eliminated. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Unsafe conditions can cause you to slip and fall. That fall can cause injuries, including neck injuries like a herniated disc.
If someone was not keeping their property safe, you might be able to pursue damages. Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers also handles slip and fall cases.
A workplace accident can also lead to neck injuries. If safety protocols are not being followed and glaring safety issues are ignored, someone may be held liable for the injuries you suffered. Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers may be able to help you with your workplace accident.
Neck Injury Complications
While many people are able to recover from neck injuries and get back to life as usual, some continue to suffer from neck pain and other issues even after treatment. Whiplash, for example, can cause long-term pain. According to Mayo Clinic, whiplash complications can include:
- Continued neck, back, and shoulder pain
- Pain in the arms
- Trouble sleeping
- Mood changes and irritability
More serious neck injuries can cause severe issues, including but not limited to:
- Decreased range of neck motion
- Chronic fatigue and pain
These issues can leave you with medical bills, and those bills can begin to pile up quickly.
