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.

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.
