Even minor neck injuries can lead to a lifetime of pain, discomfort, and complications that require prolonged medical treatment and extensive time away from work. The costs can quickly become overwhelming and can make it difficult to move on with your life.

You do not have to face these challenges alone.

If you or a loved one suffered a neck injury in an accident, the team at Zanes Law may be able to help. Call 602-999-9999 to learn more about what a neck injury lawyer in Phoenix, AZ will do to help you pursue compensation for your injuries, losses, and other expenses.

Actions to Take After Your Neck Injury

We recommend that victims of neck injuries take the following steps in the aftermath of their accident:

Seek Medical Help

Every injury, however minor, should be evaluated by a medical professional as soon as possible. Even Arizona’s Department of Health Services recommends that you do so immediately. Not only does this ensure that you begin the recovery process quickly, but it also establishes a clear connection between your accident and the injuries you suffered afterward.

It is important to follow this step even if you believe your neck injury to be minor. Some injuries will not bother until days or even weeks after the accident, and if you wait too long for an evaluation, it will be more difficult to demonstrate that your accident caused your neck injury.

Record Your Expenses

Keep a detailed record of the costs that pile up after your accident. These include not only your medical expenses but also other factors like lost wages from time away from work and the replacement of damaged property.

Once you are on the road to recovery, your schedule will fill up with doctor’s appointments, rehabilitation appointments, pharmacy visits, and insurance paperwork. A neck injury lawyer in Phoenix, AZ will help manage communications related to your case, collect evidence, calculate potential damages, and establish a strong claim on your behalf so that you can focus on healing.

Proving Liability After a Neck Injury

A Phoenix personal injury lawyer will help you demonstrate liability after your accident by establishing four factors:

  • Duty of Care. The at-fault party had a responsibility to act in a safe, responsible way.
  • Breach of Duty. The at-fault party failed to uphold their duty of care, such as by driving while impaired.
  • The at-fault party’s negligence caused the accident to occur.
  • The accident resulted in your injuries and expenses.

  • Lost wages
