We Will Establish Liability for Your Neck Injury
Someone is liable for your neck injury. We must figure out who. We generally use the standard of negligence to establish liability. When someone is negligent, they put others at an unacceptable risk of harm. When arguing your case, we may contend that:
- The defendant(s) in your case owed you a duty of care
- The defendant(s) in your case violated their duty of care
- The defendant(s)’ violation of duty of care caused your neck injury to occur
We may then display that you’ve suffered several losses because of your neck injury. This will tie your damages to the defendant’s negligence.
Our attorneys tailor this argument to each client’s case. In a car accident case, for example, we may argue that a motorist breached their duty of care by speeding, driving while drunk, or engaging in another form of negligence.
If you have experienced a neck injury because of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. You can pursue multiple types of damages, including awards that 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 your family’s financial hardship.
If a car accident caused your injury, you might have damaged property to repair or replace. You can pursue compensation to help you pay for repairs or a replacement vehicle.
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 you once loved. If you can no longer participate in a sport or hobby due to your injury, we can consider that loss of enjoyment when calculating your desired compensation.

Common Causes of Neck Injury
Certain accidents are more likely to cause neck injuries than others. Some of the common causes include:
A motor vehicle accident can 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 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 the premises are being kept safe and 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.
If someone failed to keep their property safe, you might be able to pursue damages.
A workplace accident can also lead to neck injuries. If safety protocols are not followed and glaring safety issues are ignored, someone may be liable for your injuries. Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers can help you with your workplace accident case.
Neck Injury Complications
While many people 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
- Arm pain
- 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 that pile up quickly.
