Serious automobile accidents cause tremendous physical, financial, and emotional disruption. If you have sustained personal injury as a result of another motorist’s inattentive or negligent driving, you are entitled to recover fair financial compensation for that disruption. Typically, you begin the claim process by negotiating with the at-fault driver’s automobile insurance company, but, if the insurance company wrongfully denies your claim or refuses to pay sufficient compensation, you are entitled to file a civil lawsuit in District or Superior Court. The Knightdale automobile accident attorneys of Maginnis Law can assist you through all aspects of the personal injury claim process, including negotiating your claim and, if necessary, litigating your case all the way through trial. To speak with one of our Knightdale personal injury lawyers call 919.480.8526 or email a confidential inquiry using our contact page. Read more

Neck injuries are an unfortunate but common result of automobile accidents. The human neck is simply not built to sustain the sudden whiplash associated with high speed automobile collisions. The severity of car accident neck injuries can range from cervical strains and sprains to more disabling herniated discs, fractures, dislocations, and spinal cord injuries. If you have sustained a neck injury as a result of another driver’s negligent driving, you are entitled to fair personal injury compensation. Your damages may include medical and pharmaceutical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and compensation for permanent disability. To speak with a knowledgeable Wake County personal injury lawyer, call Maginnis Law at 919.480.8526 or fill out the confidential submission form via our contact page.
The most common neck injury following an automobile wreck is a cervical strain or sprain. This injury typically does not involve any joint damage and does not involve the nervous system. Cervical strains and sprains are often referred to as soft tissue injuries. Depending upon the severity of your strain or sprain, you may need physical therapy. Insurance adjusters sometimes refuse to compensate unrepresented claimants for extensive medical bills and lost wages if the diagnosis is a cervical strain or sprain. Despite their contentions, cervical strains and sprains are significant injuries and you are entitled to full compensation.
Neck injuries which involve the nervous system can be more troubling. The first example is the herniated disc. This injury involves the soft material inside a disc escaping through the tough outside and causing irritation to the nervous system. Surgery is typically not required but in more severe cases may be necessary.
Cervical dislocations and fractures are injuries which involve the neck bones. A dislocation occurs when a neck bone moves out of its normal position, whereas a cervical fracture occurs when the bone actually breaks. A cervical fracture may accompany a dislocation. Treatment of fractures and dislocations can be costly and the results of the injuries debilitating. If you have sustained such an injury as a result of the fault of another person, it is important you immediately contact a personal injury attorney.
Neck injuries which damage the spinal cord are particularly devastating. Such injuries can lead to permanent and complete disability, including paralysis, and a lifetime of caretaking expenses for the victim and his or her family. Even for less severe spinal cord injuries, extensive and costly rehabilitation is often necessary.
