Three Ways a Cape Coral Neck Injury Lawyer Can Help You with Your Case
Pursuing compensation for a neck injury case involves a series of steps involving complicated laws that can be confusing to victims. On top of that, insurance companies often take advantage of those who have been injured by trying to undervalue or dismiss their claims. Our lawyers will go the extra mile to manage your case for you so you can focus on getting better.
Collect Evidence to Prove Fault
One of the first steps we take is gathering evidence to support your case. The types of information we find useful depends on how and where your injury occurred, but it may include items such as:
- Police reports
- Photos and videos from the scene of the incident
- Medical records
- Eyewitness testimony
- Sobriety tests
- Cell phone records
- Financial statements
If we feel that a medical expert, accident reconstruction professional, or another expert witness will be helpful in building your case, we will contact them as well to gather the appropriate evidence. Once we have determined the facts in your case, we can use them to establish the liability of the negligent party.
Seek Fair Financial Awards for You
After we have proved the negligence of the other party in your neck injury case, our lawyers will assess the total value of your damages so that we can seek adequate financial recovery on your behalf.
Some of the types of compensation you might receive for your neck injury include recovery for:
- Medical bills, including future expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Pain and suffering
There is no standard award amount, and victims receive different types of damages depending on their cases. A Cape Coral neck injury lawyer from our firm can determine if you qualify for compensation and the recovery you may receive.
Keep You Informed Throughout the Process
Our attorneys understand that even if you seek legal assistance, you still want to be involved in your case. We will make sure to keep you updated on the progress of your case from start to finish, break down complicated legal jargon, and address any concerns you may have at any point.

Types of Neck Injury Cases We Handle
Many neck injuries occur because someone failed to take the necessary safety precautions that would have prevented the victim from suffering an injury. If your Cape Coral neck injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, our lawyers can help you with your claim.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
According to MedlinePlus, motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common causes of neck injuries. Whiplash, in particular, occurs frequently because of collisions, and while some cases resolve on their own without treatment, others lead to chronic pain and headaches.
Slips, Trips, and Falls
MedlinePlus also notes that falls often cause neck injuries. If you fell and suffered a neck injury because a property owner or manager failed to keep their premises safe, you may have a personal injury case under Florida Statute §768.81.
Nursing Home Abuse
The National Center on Aging (NCOA) estimates that 1 in 10 Americans aged 60 or older suffers from abuse, and one study suggests that those who live in long-term care facilities have an increased risk of mistreatment. Physical assault, such as hitting or punching, as well as neglect, which forces some residents to try to care for their own needs, can result in serious neck injuries.
If you used a product that had a design, manufacturing, or marketing defect that caused you to suffer a neck injury, a Cape Coral neck injury lawyer can help you prove the negligence of the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retail store that sold the product and pursue financial recovery from the liable party.

You Have a Limited Amount of Time to File Your Neck Injury Claim
Victims of negligence who suffer neck injuries in Florida have an established time frame during which they can file their claims for compensation.
Under Florida Statute §95.11(3)(a), victims typically have up to four years from the date of their injury to file a claim against the at-fault party for the recovery of damages. On the other hand, Florida Statute §400.0236 maintains that victims of nursing home abuse have up to two years to file claims against liable facilities for neck injuries suffered as a result of abuse or neglect.
While these laws apply to most situations, there are some exceptions. Additionally, the process of pursuing compensation may take time, especially if you have a complex case. To avoid potential delays and ensure that you do not miss deadlines, our lawyers recommend starting the process with us as soon as possible.
