Neck Injury Attorneys
Puget Sound accidents leave many people with debilitating neck injuries
Injury attorney Bill Coats has worked with hundreds of people injured in accidents. Neck injuries are among the most common injuries, and the most debilitating. These types of injury can be especially painful and long lasting, even permanent, and can negatively a person's enjoyment of life, their work, and their relationships.
Typical neck injuries and symptoms from Puget Sound accidents include:
- Neck sprain - Ligaments are bands of fibrous tissue that connect bones together and help to stabilize joints. When those ligaments are stretched or torn in the neck, the result is a neck sprain, which can cause pain and stiffness.
- Cervical Radiculopathy (pinched nerve) - When a nerve is irritated or pinched, by either a bone spur or a fragment of a herniated (ruptured) disc, it causes the nerve to not work properly.
- Herniated Disc - When neck motion puts too much pressure on a disc, a herniated disc may result. If the tear is on the side of the disc next to the spinal canal, the pressure can cause pain, numbness and weakness along the nerve.
- Common symptoms of neck injuries include pain in the neck, shoulders, arms and hands, headaches, reduced range of motion in your neck, numbness, weakness and slower reflexes, and muscle spasms in your neck.
Many people who suffer a neck injury can no longer work as they had before, and experience severe financial problems as a result.

What does a successful neck injury insurance claim look like?
When someone is injured in a crash caused the negligence of someone else, Bill communicates with physicians and specialists to evaluate the extent and severity of injuries and other damages, to determine how the injuries will affect life now and in the future. Many injuries require expensive, long-term medical care, and Bill documents expected future medical costs to ensure they are fully factored into the insurance-claim process.
