The neck is home to the most vulnerable part of the spinal column and many different connective tissues and muscles. With so many important anatomical pieces contained in such a compact space, any injury to the neck can be especially severe. A personal injury lawsuit allows those injured by the negligence of others to obtain compensation to pay for their medical treatment, lost wages and any ongoing expenses and additional damages associated with their neck injury. By utilizing the services of an accomplished neck injury attorney, you increase your claim's likelihood of success.Premier Injury Law Attorneys Serving Clients Throughout Massachusetts

Neck injuries come in many different varieties. Some of the most common injuries include whiplash, pinched nerves, compressed vertebrae and herniated disks. If the damage to the cervical spine (the seven vertebrae in the neck) is too severe, paralysis may result. Neck injuries that lead to these injuries are often caused by:
- Car accidents, especially those involving rear-end collisions
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Slip and falls
- Construction accidents
- Medical malpractice

An Attorney Can Help You Deal With An Insurance Company
If you have suffered a neck injury, it is unlikely that an insurance company will give you sufficient compensation. Insurers are motivated to not pay you benefits after car accidents, slips and falls, and workplace injuries. Insurance companies will do everything they can in order to increase profits, and this often stands in the way of giving you the benefits you deserve.
Insurance companies will often try to find many excuses in order to avoid paying you compensation for your neck injury. Many common reasons include:
- Claiming that you have a pre-existing condition
- Claiming that your neck injury is mostly psychological, rather than scientifically viable, and discredit the severity of your injury
- The insurance company may deny payment for your therapy, by claiming it is unconventional or unnecessary
- They may try to say that there are other potentially liable sources for payment, which results in a stalemate with the insurance company, where no compensation if made
Soft tissue injuries, such as ones that occur in the neck, are a challenge to gain compensation from insurance companies. At Bellotti Law Group, P.C., our experienced personal injury attorneys work hard to fight for your rights. Our attorneys have decades of experience, and will work to make sure you can receive the maximum benefits for your injury.
How Do I Heal After Sustaining A Neck Injury?
If you have suffered a neck injury, it is important that you rest. Limiting the amount of physical strain you put on your body will help the recovery process. Additionally, you should seek medication that can help cope with the pain, as well as physical therapy when needed. It is important to immobilize your neck with a brace, to allow the body to properly heal. If required, you may need surgery on the area.
Some people may be able to successfully heal after surgery, rest, or physical therapy. Common consequences of neck injuries include chronic pain, decreased ability of motion, decreased enjoyment of life, depression, and an increased risk of developing a dependence on painkillers.
