Many of our clients at Marasco & Nesselbush are the victims of car accidents who are now coping with the consequences of a serious neck injury. Neck and spine injuries can be debilitating, requiring years of medical treatment, multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation. Many car accident victims can never fully recover, and face a future filled with difficult daily challenges. That is why it is so important to get qualified legal representation to protect your interests in a lawsuit over injuries from a car accident that was someone else’s fault. Injuries from accidents involving large commercial vehicles such as 18-wheelers or city buses can cause even more serious damage than colliding with another car or stationary object. Motorcycle riders, bike riders, and pedestrians are also at risk for serious neck injuries when a collision occurs.

Whiplash is the most common neck injury sustained in car accidents. When a vehicle occupant is jarred forward in a sudden rear-end collision, or sideways from a side-impact collision, or backward when struck head-on, the neck and head may be strained and moved back and forth with such violent force that serious damage is often inflicted on the neck and upper spine.
The soft tissue surrounding the vertebrae can be damaged and cause severe pain and medical complications. Neck strain, pinched nerves, and herniated discs are among the most common injuries suffered in car crashes. Many times, the effects of whiplash and other neck injuries may not be fully realized for hours, days or even weeks after the accident.
Spinal cord injuries, such as damage to or lacerations of the nerves surrounding the vertebrae, or a fracture of the vertebrae, can be life-changing. These types of severe injuries can leave a person paralyzed for life.
The forceful impact of a collision poses an extreme threat to the vulnerable neck and spine. One of the most delicate parts of the body, the spine contains millions of extremely fine nerve fibers that carry signals to and from the brain, affecting the ability to move the limbs and other body parts, as well as organ functions.
The spinal cord and brain are the nerve center of the body. The sudden impact of a car accident can injure these extremely fragile parts of the nervous system. If a victim is thrown from a vehicle on impact, the body’s contact with the roadway or another object can also lead to severe neck or spinal cord injuries. Fractured neck bones and herniated discs are a frequent result of these incidents.
Long-Term Effects of a Car Accident Neck Injury
Even more subtle effects can have lasting ramifications for a neck injury victim. Changes in mood and behavior, lack of motivation, depression, problems with interpersonal relationships and other mental disorders can follow even a minor neck injury sustained in a car accident. Sensory perceptions, such as vision, hearing, taste and touch can all be affected by a spine or neck injury. The inability to engage in sports, other activities or hobbies once enjoyed can also be the outcome of a neck injury from a car accident.
"I am a motor vehicle versus pedestrian, accident survivor. Although struck in a crosswalk outside my clinic. As a physician, I’ve had to deal and negotiate with insurance companies in the healthcare arena my entire career. Consequently, I felt that legal counseling would be the safest and most prudent way to approach this unfortunate circumstance. Having researched the numerous legal offices on the internet, Marasco and Nesselbush had a very strong and positive presence, and I must sincerely and wholeheartedly agree.
The Firm, and my M&N attorney, represented me in the most professional and experienced manner, and with ethics of the highest standards, during a significantly emotional time in my life. My M&N attorney was knowledgeable and compassionate about my case and situation. He came to my home the very day I contacted his law firm, thoroughly explained every detail clearly and distinctly, and honestly answered all of my questions. He was genuine, personal, reliable, and patient, offering not only professional support and responsible legal counsel, but also friendship and guidance during a difficult time and situation in my life. He and his staff have earned my deepest trust and respect. I wholeheartedly recommend Marasco and Nesselbush."
