Head & Neck Injuries Can Occur in a Variety of Accidents Caused by Third-Party Negligence
At Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., our experienced team of injury lawyers know that serious and lasting head and neck injuries can occur in any number of ways, including the following types of accidents:
- Motor vehicle accidents. When a third-party motor vehicle driver’s negligence causes an accident that results in serious head and neck injuries, that driver and his or her insurance company can be held financially responsible for the damages.
- Slip and fall accidents. Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in reasonably safe condition to prevent accidents. If you sustain head and neck injuries in a slip and fall accident, the property owner and his or her insurance company may be held responsible depending upon whether you were legally on the premises, and for what purpose.
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents. When bicycles and pedestrians are involved in accidents, whether or not with another motor vehicle, the injuries can be much more severe than those sustained in a two-vehicle accident. If a third party’s negligent or reckless actions caused the accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Accidents involving medical malpractice. Medical malpractice by your medical team can cause or exacerbate head and neck injuries in cases where the doctor failed to properly diagnose or treat the injury. Many birth injuries also involve head and neck injuries. If your medical team failed to abide by generally accepted medical standards, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be appropriate.
- Workplace accidents. While worker’s compensation laws prevent a lawsuit against your employer in many cases involving workplace accidents, our experienced lawyers can evaluate your case to identify whether a third party may be held financially responsible for the accident and resulting injuries.
These accidents can cause head and neck injuries ranging from the relatively minor to the catastrophic. Common head and neck injuries include:
- Spinal cord damage,
- Traumatic brain injury,
- Joint or nerve damage, including pinched nerves,
- Spinal damage,
- Damage to the face, eyes or teeth,
- Skull fractures.
