Orange County Neck Injury Car Accident Lawyer
Spinal injuries and whiplash are both common results of car accidents. Acute whiplash, for example, is caused by the neck hyperextending and then rebounding, which often occurs during the sudden impact of a car accident.
Whiplash and other injuries of this type may not at first seem as severe as a broken bone, but they can be incredibly serious, painful, and long term. That’s why you need a qualified Orange County neck injury car accident lawyer in your corner.
Our law firm has substantial experience working with physicians, which enables us to understand how common neck injuries impact our clients. During your case, we will need to use this knowledge to explain to a jury how your injuries affect your daily life and why you deserve financial compensation for them.
Neck Injury Symptoms
There are a variety of neck injury symptoms:
- Severe headaches or migraines
- Persistent aches and soreness
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Decreased mobility in the neck
- Loss of sensation
- Unexplained muscle spasms
- Extreme neck and back pain
If you experience any of these symptoms after an accident, see your physician immediately for a full medical evaluation. This assessment could be essential in proving your case.
Speak with an Orange County Neck Injury Car Accident Lawyer About Your Injuries
At Dickson, Kohan, and Bablove, LLP, we understand how a neck injury can significantly impact your ability to work, care for your family, or continue with a daily routine.
After speaking with your doctor, an experienced Orange County neck injury car accident lawyer will create a compelling argument explaining that your neck injury is negatively impacting your life, and that you deserve financial compensation as a result.
We Can Help You Receive Medical Care
After a neck injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you deserve to receive the medical care necessary for the fullest recovery possible.
Unfortunately, many insurance companies will limit what treatments they will cover and restrict your access to expensive therapies or surgeries.
If you are being denied care, we can file a lawsuit and compel the insurance company to pay for the treatments and procedures your recovery requires.
Your Financial Award May Be Reduced Without Legal Help
Many people make the mistake of assuming that the at-fault driver will accept full responsibility and the consequences that come with it.
This is rarely the case. If nothing else, the other driver’s insurance company will attempt to minimize their liability as much as possible. They will attempt to prove that you were partially to blame for the accident.
This is done with the concept of shared negligence or shared fault in mind. In California, it is possible for both drivers to be found at fault for an accident.
Any percentage of fault you are determined to be responsible for will reduce your total settlement amount. For example, an accident where you are found to be 15 percent at fault would reduce a $10,000 claim by that same percentage, resulting in a final settlement of $8,500 being awarded to you.
