Neck injuries typically occur as a result of an auto accident, but neck injuries can be caused by workplace accidents, a slip and fall accident, or medical malpractice. Neck injuries can involve considerable and persistent pain, as well as substantial medical and rehabilitation costs.

As knowledgeable Chicago, personal injury attorneys we are capable of handling legal claims involving catastrophic injuries, such as neck injuries, paralysis and disfigurement.
A common neck injury is whiplash, which is caused when the head is violently thrust backward and forward, causing damage to the neck. Whiplash can cause injuries to intervertebral joints, discs and ligaments. Whiplash often occurs in rear-end collisions. An injured person may feel no pain following an auto accident, with the pain developing over the next several days. Other common neck injuries include a broken neck, crushed vertebrae and neck sprain.
The treatment of neck injuries can be lengthy and require significant rehabilitation costs. Some neck injuries result in paralysis or loss of movement. Depending on the type of injury, the medical treatment may require neck fusion surgery or hydrocortisone injections to relieve pain.
Neck injuries often involve significant medical bills and long-term rehabilitative costs. If you have been injured as a result of the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another, you may be entitled to recover compensation for medical bills, rehabilitative costs and lost income as a result of your neck injury.
