Call (888) 452-0703 for Experienced Legal Representation

Neck injuries on the job are typically the result of sudden trauma or cumulative stress involving compressed nerves, strained muscles, or even worn joints. Neck pain can extend to the shoulders and back area.

Common causes of workplace neck injuries include the following:

  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Falling objects
  • Repetitive motion
  • Limited range of motion

At Smolich & Smolich, we are committed to guiding you through the workers’ compensation process in order to obtain the benefits you deserve. If your workers’ comp benefits do not cover all of your medical expenses and lost wages, we can determine if you are eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent party.

Types of Neck Injuries

The neck is also known as the cervical spine, which is considered the most exposed part of the spine, consisting of seven vertebrae. When your neck suffers substantial force or trauma, it can lead to a wide variety of severe short- and long-term health issues.

Common types of neck injuries include:

  • Neck sprain
  • Herniated disc
  • Neck fracture
  • Muscles strain
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Cervical dislocation
  • Paralysis
