Neck Injuries in the Workplace

Call (916) 571-0400 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

Even if you received a claim rejection, we will find alternative ways to help you make the best recovery possible.

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”
