Legal Team in Joplin & Springfield, MO Focusing on Neck Injuries

Fighting for your benefits, from start to finish

Neck injuries dramatically impact the lives of victims and their families. Often, these injuries leave victims permanently disabled or in need of months, years and, in some instances, a lifetime of medical care.

The Ryan E. Murphy Law Firm, LLC has a proven record of success in work-related cervical injury cases.  We help employees obtain the benefits that are imperative to guaranteeing lifelong care.  We handle all types of neck injuries:

  • Paralysis
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Spinal cord contusions
  • Disc injuries
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Headaches
  • Whiplash

Neck injuries and long-term care needs

The severity of neck injuries varies greatly. A strain can take days or weeks to heal. A disc herniation — the rupture of an intervertebral disc (the cushion between the bony blocks of vertebrae) — may put pressure on spinal column nerves and might require surgery to relieve the pain.

On the most severe end of the spectrum is an injury to the cervical vertebrae — the seven vertebrae in the neck. Such injuries can cause loss of function in the arms and legs, resulting in quadriplegia.

In addition to helping clients address their immediate needs after an on-the-job accident, The Ryan E. Murphy Law Firm, LLC is experienced in handling more complex cases involving permanent and severe neck injuries. We work with life-care experts to value your long-term care and aggressively pursue maximum compensation to address your family’s needs.

We work aggressively to protect your rights and advance your recovery after an accident or injury.

What to do following a neck injury

All neck injuries should receive immediate medical attention. Neck injuries can quickly escalate, putting you at risk for long-term problems such as a prolonged recovery or a permanent disability. It also is important to document a workplace neck injury with a medical diagnosis.

Of course, you should alert your employer of your injury. Failure to do so within 30 days may jeopardize your workers’ compensation claim.

Because workers’ compensation claims for neck injuries can be difficult to pursue, it is imperative that you discuss your case with a qualified workers’ compensation attorney. Our firm is experienced in the complexities of workplace neck and back injury claims, and we tailor strategies to your specific injury and situation. We help you obtain an appropriate diagnosis so that you recover the compensation you need and deserve after an accident.
