Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Atlanta, Alpharetta, and All of Georgia

Neck injuries can be caused by any number of events but commonly result from car accidents, falls, strain or sport accidents. As the neck is a very sensitive area and such an injury can cause other health complications, it is vital you pursue the compensation you will need to help with the effects. After an accident, the extent of a neck injury may not be immediately apparent. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as symptoms appear as well as when they change or worsen. Keep full medical records and receipts so that your lawyer has a record for use in your case. Some symptoms of neck injury include:

  • Pain in the neck, whether it be sharp or dull or feel like a “knot”
  • Neck stiffness, which can at times restrict movement on one side
  • Spasms in neck muscles
  • Numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms
  • Bruising or swelling of or around the neck
  • Shooting pain along the spine
  • Shoulder, back or arm pain in addition to any of the above


At Van Sant Law, we care about defending your rights and protecting your health. Even neck injuries that appear to begin mildly can become serious. They can affect your daily functioning and cause a lot of pain, require medical treatment and in some cases even require surgery. The medical expenses you will incur as well as the income lost while you recover are not something you should have to worry about. If your injury was caused due to the actions of another, you deserve compensation for these things as well as the pain and suffering caused. Contact us today.
