Orange County Neck Injury Attorney
Handling Neck Injury Cases in Orange County, California
Neck injuries are commonly caused by trauma or accidents. The neck plays an important role in supporting the skull, and the neck can sustain injuries by gradual strains, sudden movements, and overuse or from direct blows to the head or shoulder region. After a neck injury, it's not uncommon to experience immobility, achiness, or stiffness in the neck muscles, muscle spasms, migraines, dizziness, and in worst cases severe pain and inability to move the extremities (this is generally found in cases involving severe neck trauma).
In the case of an acute neck injury, it may be medically necessary to immobilize the neck; a medical doctor may also recommend the patient applies ice to the area for 24 to 48 hours following the injury. In some injury cases, a physician may advise that the patient undergoes rehabilitative therapy, or in serious cases, neck surgery. If you have sustained a neck injury, it's critical that you seek a professional opinion for further evaluation, and this may include getting an MRI and X-rays.
If you or a loved one has sustained a neck injury due to the negligence, recklessness or the dangerous acts of another, or through a work-related accident, it is imperative that you contact an Orange County neck injury attorney at once so that your legal right to fair compensation and benefits are protected.
