Do You Qualify for Compensation for Your Neck Injury?
Generally, if another individual, business, or entity was responsible for the incident that caused your neck injury, you may be able to hold them liable for your losses.
An accident lawyer with our firm can demonstrate that:
- The other party owed you a duty of care.
- They breached their duty of care in some way.
- The breach of duty caused your accident.
- You suffered a neck injury and losses from the accident.
Once they establish these four elements, they can prove the other party negligently caused or contributed to your accident-related injuries.
Who May be Liable for Your Neck Injury?
Depending on the type of accident that led to your neck injury, liability may rest with various parties. If you got hurt during a slip and fall, a negligent store owner may be liable. Similarly, if another driver rear-ended your car and caused your neck injury, they would be liable for your losses.
In some cases, even a government entity can be liable for accident-related injuries. For example, a hazardous road design that leads to an accident may prove the governing municipality negligent.

You will need to understand the claims process and filing procedures, as well as how state laws can affect your case. You have the option of hiring legal counsel, and our neck injury lawyers serving Tampa can help.
Neck injuries can occur in a variety of different circumstances. We have helped neck injury victims with cases related to:

When you hire our firm to work on your case, the burden of dealing with insurers, the courts, and state statutes is on us. Here are some of the ways we can help you:
Negotiate a Fair Settlement
The insurance company might try to push you into settling as soon as possible. However, accepting an early settlement may not work out in your best interest, especially if you are still assessing the long-term effects of your injuries. This information is necessary to estimate your future medical needs and expenses accurately.
Our team can advise you regarding your next steps, negotiate with the insurance company for a fair settlement, and take the case to court if the insurer refuses our demands.
Assume All the Paperwork and Communications
If you suffered a significant injury, resulting in high medical bills and considerable income losses, the claims process can be overwhelming, much less filing a civil action.
If you are still in recovery, you may not have the time or energy to spend hours and days analyzing your case, collecting evidence, fighting the insurance companies, and learning how to file a claim or lawsuit correctly.
A Tampa neck injury lawyer from our firm can be there for you every step of the way and work on your case while you are recovering.
Represent You in a Trial
If we need to file a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation, we will. We can argue your case before a jury and seek a court-awarded offer. We can represent you and protect your rights.
Recommendations After Suffering a Neck Injury in Tampa
If you are suffering injuries from another party’s actions, consider how the following steps could protect your legal rights:
Seek Medical Advice as Soon as Possible
Some neck injuries can take a few hours or days to develop after a traumatic incident, such as a car accident. However, if you wait too long to see a doctor, the other side could argue that your injuries are not related to the accident in question. The liable party may use this information to undermine your case.
Seeking medical attention helps put your accident and injuries on record, which our team can use to support your right to financial recovery.
Keep All Documentation of the Accident
You will need other evidence to support your case, as well. If you approach the liable party with no proof, they may use this against you. As you get treatment and consider legal aid, try to keep the following pieces of information for your records:
- Photos of your injuries
- Copies of your imaging scans
- Receipts, invoices, and billing statements related to your damages
- The contact information of any witnesses
- A copy of the accident report, if one exists
Our law firm can handle the evidence collection process on your behalf, but any information you give us can be beneficial. We can also secure pieces of evidence that may not be available to you, like traffic camera footage and testimony from third-party consultants.
