Neck Injury

Neck Injury

A neck injury can arise in a great variety of circumstances, including auto accidents and workplace mishaps. A work-related neck injury may be a special case in that workers’ compensation law may apply. In addition to the physical pain of the neck injury, there are the costs of missing work and missing out on living a full life — whether temporarily or permanently.

Las Vegas chiropractor services are available for those who suffer from serious neck injuries, but chiropractor services and other treatments for neck injuries can add up quickly. Las Vegas-area individuals who are suffering from a neck injury can discuss their concerns with a personal injury attorney at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith.

We may be able to help you collect the compensation you need to pay for expensive, but necessary treatments such as chiropractor services. Call today for more information.
