Pursue a fair recovery with help from Meshbesher Law Firm.
Consequences Of A Broken Neck
A broken neck may result from a fall at work, a sports injury or a car crash. If your neck fracture was due to another’s carelessness, they may be at fault. Insurance companies representing the liable person often rush to the victims’ hospital bed, trying to make a quick settlement offer and hoping to take advantage of the confusion caused by such a tragic situation.
But insurance companies have an incredible amount of experience in paying the least amount of money to victims possible. They may claim that their offer is “fair and generous,” but it usually isn’t. These offers are hardly ever enough to cover the pain and suffering that a person goes through, let alone long-lasting medical costs.
Common consequences of a broken neck include:
- Limited or no head and neck movement
- Inability to move around without assistance
- No bladder or bowel control
- Difficulty chewing and swallowing
- Around-the-clock medical care
- Need of a ventilator to breathe
Unfortunately, these consequences go far beyond the victim’s own well-being. Financial and emotional repercussions of neck and spine injuries affect the lives of friends, family and loved ones, necessitating a financial recovery.
