If you are involved in a car accident, it is not uncommon to sustain an neck injury. Some of the most common neck injuries include:
- Herniated disc, and
- Pinched nerve.
It is possible to suffer from just one of these injuries, a combination or even all three.
What Do I Do If My Neck Is Injured in a Car Accident?
You have a right to compensation for your medical expenses, including medication, surgery, and physical therapy, but only if you are less than 50 percent at fault for the accident. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you prove that the accident was not your fault.
Also keep in mind that personal injury claims are time-sensitive. Your personal injury lawsuit must be brought within two years of the accident.
While Oklahoma does not cap what you can recover for medical expenses, the law does place a $350,000 cap on what you can recover for pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages.
