It’s not uncommon to sustain a neck injury in a Los Angeles accident. Unfortunately, injuries involving the neck can be quite severe and even last a lifetime. If someone else is responsible for the accident that caused your neck injury, you can demand compensation. The experienced Los Angeles personal injury attorneys at Glotzer & Leib, LLP can help you fight for the money you deserve.

Contact our Los Angeles law firm to schedule a free, no-obligation case assessment. We’ll review the circumstances that led to your injury and explain your rights. You have a limited amount of time to act, so don’t hesitate to call us today.

Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney to Help With My Neck Injury Case?

You may be entitled to compensation after an accident. However, it can be difficult to get the money you deserve. The laws and procedures that might apply to your case can be difficult to understand. Insurance companies will fight you every step of the way, and possibly even try to blame you for your neck injury. If you proceed without an attorney, risk not getting all of the money you deserve.

At Glotzer & Leib, LLP, a Los Angeles personal injury attorney can help you project your rights.  We understand that your life has been changed forever and will do whatever it takes to win your case. When we represent you, insurance companies know that they’ll have to offer a fair settlement or risk facing our skilled trial attorneys in court. Our track record of success makes this something they want to avoid.

Don’t risk missing out on the money you need by trying to navigate your neck injury lawsuit on your own. You can trust us to fight for you because you deserve it. Call our Los Angeles legal team today to discuss your case.a

Types of Neck Injuries

Our attorneys handle all personal injury cases involving neck injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Herniated disc
  • Pinched nerve or disc
  • Vertebral fracture
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Cervical dislocation
  • Spasms, and more.

Don’t hesitate to seek medical care if you’ve suffered an injury to the neck. Left untreated, you risk developing severe and life-threatening health complications. 

Why Are Neck Injuries So Serious?

Injuries to the neck can be quite severe. Why? The neck houses one of the most important (and fragile) parts of the body: your spinal cord. The spinal cord runs from the base of your skull down to your tailbone. The cervical spine is located in your neck. This is where vertebrae C1 through C8 can be found.

Injuries to any part o the spine can be serious. However, the higher the point of injury on the spine, the more serious the damage. As a result, injuries involving parts of the spine in the neck tend to be devastating.

Possible injuries resulting from damage to the C1 through C7 vertebrae include:

  • Quadriplegia (paralysis of the arms and legs)
  • Loss of control of the head, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, and torso, and
  • Loss of the ability to speak.

Injuries involving the C1 through C4 vertebrae tend to be more severe than those involving the C5 through C8 vertebrae.

Causes of Neck Injuries in Los Angeles

Any trauma can cause an injury to the neck. These include:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Negligent security
  • Boating accidents
  • Recreational accidents, and more.

Our attorneys are committed to getting you the money you deserve after an unexpected accident. Don’t hesitate to contact our law office to discuss your case. If you can’t make it to us, we’ll come to you. 

Damages Available For Your Neck Injury

Neck injuries can range from relatively minor sprains to more serious cervical fractures. The costs of your neck injury can vary, as well. When someone else causes your injury, they should also be responsible for related costs. Our attorneys will aggressively pursue compensation from anyone who caused you harm.

We’ll seek damages to cover:

  • Medical bills
  • Nursing care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medically-necessary home renovations (e.g., wheelchair ramp, stair lift)
  • Lost wages
  • Disability, both temporary and permanent
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium, and more.

Our goal is to make sure that you’re financially stable after an accident. We’ll work closely with injury experts as we investigate your case. With their help, we’ll have solid evidence to support our demands for compensation from at-fault parties and their insurance companies.

When Do I Have to File a Lawsuit After I Suffer a Neck Injury?

There’s a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit after you get hurt in a Los Angeles accident. Generally speaking, you’ll have two years from the date you suffer your neck injury. You can lose out on valuable compensation if you let the statute of limitations expire before filing your claim.

You may have additional time to seek compensation if:

  • The person responsible for your injuries can’t be found
  • You were under the age of 18 when you got hurt, or
  • You didn’t discover your injury right away.

Don’t risk losing out on the money you deserve. Call Glotzer & Leib, LLP for immediate legal assistance after your Los Angeles accident.

    “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

    His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”
