Neck Injury Lawyer

New York City Neck Injury Lawyer

Neck injuries come with a wide range of symptoms, and no two injuries are alike. If you have suffered from a neck injury after being involved in an accident with someone else, or from another situation where another party acted irresponsibly, recklessly, or with negligence, contact us today to learn more about your legal options to seek financial compensation. Personal injury lawsuits and settlements seek to compensate victims for more than the immediate financial impacts that they experience as a result of their injuries and instead include the impacts, both economic and non-economic, that someone suffers after an injury.

Read more below about what these damages are, some of the common ways that someone may suffer from a back injury, and how we can help you recover the compensation that you truly deserve. If you are dealing with an insurance company after a car accident, DO NOT accept any settlement offer that they make without first consulting a personal injury attorney in New York City. This settlement amount is the absolute minimum that you deserve, and will severely impact your future and financial stability.

Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation about your injuries, and partner with a law firm who will represent you while fighting for your absolute best interests.

Types of Neck Injuries

Neck injuries are commonly the result of trauma and impact, such as from a car accident or a fall. However, there are some cases where a neck injury can result from a surgical error or other medical malpractice and can cause the victim serious and long-term repercussions.


Whiplash is caused by impact collisions˜ when the head is jerked forward and back and the muscles, tendons, and soft tissues are compressed and stretched rapidly. Whiplash can cause headaches, jaw pain, stiffness in the neck, and a loss of mobility. Most commonly, whiplash is treated by keeping the neck and head stabilized as the muscles and tendons are able to repair themselves.


A neck fracture occurs when one or more of the bones in the neck are broken, which can cause extreme pain and discomfort for the victim. These injuries can be life-threatening in some situations, and must be addressed by a medical professional in all situations.


A pinched nerve is painful at the least and can be extremely debilitating and cause permanent problems. In most cases, the pinched nerve requires physical therapy, rest, and care in order to recover back to your original abilities.


Spinal cord injuries can be absolutely devastating for a victim, and if the injury takes place in the neck, can result in nerve damage that leads to quadriplegia — the loss of use in all four limbs. Paralysis of all types is extremely serious, and may or may not have any chance of partial recovery depending on the severity of the injury. In some cases, neck injuries require the use of a respirator for the rest of the victim’s life, among other serious disabilities.

Seeking Compensation For a Neck Injury

If you have suffered from a neck injury, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the responsible party or their insurance company, depending on the situation. We must first set out to determine that the other party had a responsibility and duty of care, meaning that they were expected to act in a certain way to keep you safe. Additionally, we will work to prove that they failed at this duty and that this failure led to serious injuries and measurable damages.

After we have proven this, we will move forward with your case and begin to calculate the financial damages that you are owed. This includes economic damages such as lost wages, medical bills, and recovery costs, but goes further to include non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional anguish.

The sooner you contact us for your free initial consultation, the sooner we will begin working on your case and ultimately getting you the money that you rightfully are entitled to. There is no reason that you must suffer the financial consequences of an injury that someone else caused, and you can be confident that we will be fighting for your rights throughout your case.


What Can Cause a Burn Injury in NYC?

Fire is far from the only cause of such injuries. Burns can result from exposure to:

  • Dry heat, as in the case of a fire.
  • Wet heat from steam or hot liquids.
  • Sufficient friction can cause a burn.
  • Heated objects, coming into contact with the skin, cause burns.
  • Electricity, in large enough amounts, can cause burns.
  • Some chemicals cause the skin to burn.
  • Exposure to sunlight can cause burns, including serious burns if the exposure is excessive.

What Kinds of Burn Injuries Are There?

Your skin is composed of two layers: the visible outer layer, known as the epidermis, and a layer underneath the epidermis known as the dermis. The seriousness of a burn injury is a reflection of how deeply the skin has been damaged.

  • In a first-degree burn, only the epidermis is damaged. The effect may be limited to a reddening of the skin.
  • In a second-degree burn, the epidermis and the dermis are both affected. This can lead to pain, swelling, and blistering.
  • In a third-degree burn, the tissue below the dermis is also damaged. Skin can turn white or black or be numb.

In rare cases, people can also experience a “fourth-degree” burn. In this case, the damage caused is sufficient to affect muscle and even bone. Burns of this sort require highly specialized treatment and involve extended recovery time – treatments may be needed for years, or even a lifetime.

If you recently sustained a burn injury, you may be eligible for compensation. Speak to our NYC burn injury lawyers to find out how we can help.

Where Do Burn Accidents Occur?

Although burn injuries can seemingly occur in every circumstance, there may be certain industries and occupations where the risk of a burn is higher.

Certain occupations, such as construction, involve heightened risks – especially if negligence is a cause. Anyone could encounter faulty or poorly maintained equipment that overheats or catches fire. Careless actions by any individual in the possession of material or equipment that can cause burns can cause lasting harm, whether it’s a matter of fireworks, acid or welding equipment.

If you sustained a burn while working on a job, contact an NYC construction accident attorney for help.
