Determining the Full Value of Your Case
The spinal cord acts as the transportation system for signals from your nervous system. A neck injury can interrupt this pathway, resulting in pain, tingling, or numbness in other parts of the body. This can make your injury or workers’ compensation claim more complicated. You should be compensated for all of the pain and discomfort that resulted from your injury, but determining the full extent of the damages can take time.
Some symptoms that could be caused by a neck injury include:
- Numbness or tingling in the arms or legs
- Back pain
- Mood swings
- Feelings of dizziness, lightheadedness, or confusion
- Memory lapses
The insurance company is going to fight back on any symptom you claim to be related to your accident that is not directly linked to the neck. It is important that you receive a thorough medical examination from a physician who will consider your current and future medical needs. We can refer you to a trustworthy physician if you do not have one already.
Report Your Injury Immediately
If you were injured in the workplace, you need to report the accident to your employer right away even if you do not think you were badly hurt. Not all injuries are immediately apparent. If you do experience difficulties because of the accident at a later date, it may be too late to file for compensation if you did not report the accident within 90 days.
