If you suffer from persistent neck pain as a result of a car accident that was no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation.
A Dublin neck pain lawyer from Bressman Law can investigate the car accident that caused your neck injury and identify those liable for your harm. We then pursue justice on your behalf by negotiating with insurance companies for a fair settlement. If we must, we are ready to take your case to trial.
The time for pursuing civil action is generally limited by the statute of limitations, so you must act quickly. To learn if you have a case, call us now at (614) 538-1116.
Car Accidents and Neck Pain
One of the most common types of injuries from a car accident is whiplash. The rapid, back and forth motion of the neck occurs in most rear-end collisions.
Whiplash can confuse accident victims due to its delayed symptoms, according to the Mayo Clinic. If you left the emergency department feeling stiff, sore, but otherwise fine, the days following your car accident may bring on additional symptoms, such as:
- Tingling or numbness in the arms
- Blurred vision
- Loss of range of motion in the neck
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
The severity of your neck pain can greatly affect your ability to work. The loss of income due to your whiplash injury is understandably stressful.
The unfair position another driver placed you in due to their negligence is not fair. You may want to pursue a civil case, however, you might not know where to start.
A Dublin neck pain lawyer from Bressman Law can help you. At Bressman Law, we handle the details, paperwork, and other aspects of civil cases on behalf of our clients. You focus on getting better and leave the rest to us.

Common Causes of Rear-End Collisions
Rear-end collisions are a common cause of neck pain. Among the many causes of rear-end collisions or other types of accidents are:
- Drunk drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Drowsy drivers
- Aggressive drivers who purposely tailgate
Ohio residents and visitors have a responsibility to remain alert behind the wheel. The chronic neck pain you experience was perhaps avoidable, had the other driver remained focused on the road.
If you suffer from chronic neck pain that is due to the careless actions of another driver, let a member of our team get to work for you. Contact Bressman Law now for a free case evaluation at (614) 538-1116.

Neck Pain Treatment
Treatment for your neck pain may include one or more of the following:
- Muscle relaxants
- A cervical collar
- Cervical traction
- Pain medications
- Antidepressant drugs
The medical costs associated with your care should not come from your personal finances. Pursuing a civil case can possibly provide you with the compensation you need to cover these and other accident-related expenses.
Types of Compensation Typically Recoverable
While no one personal injury case is alike, at Bressman Law, we generally pursue the following types of compensation:
- Medical costs, like that of your initial emergency department visit
- Ongoing medical costs, such as physical therapy and repeated doctor visits
- Lost wages, i.e., the income you lost from missing work due to your recovery
- Diminished earning capacity, i.e., the income possible had you been able to return to the same job as before the accident
- Pain and suffering, i.e., the mental anguish associated with your chronic pain
Upon careful review of all evidence from your accident, a member of our team can begin to prepare your case for a possible settlement or trial.

Do Not Speak with Insurance Companies
The neck pain you suffer from is a serious injury that deserves fair compensation. It is likely that any initial settlement offer is much lower than you deserve.
If an insurance company contacts you with an offer, do not accept it before having a lawyer review it. Should you accept it, your claim is considered closed. There are often no options for pursuing compensation later, should your medical condition worsen.
At Bressman Law, we negotiate with insurance companies to secure the best outcome possible. If we are unable to settle your case out of court, we are ready to proceed to trial. We must act quickly, though; per Ohio Revised Code (ORC) §2305.10, we generally only have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.
