Anyone who has suffered a neck injury knows that it’s serious. The neck is one of the most vulnerable areas of the human body, and when it’s damaged it can cause constant pain and lasting consequences. Damage to the neck can mean paralysis, numbness, tingling, difficulty walking or gripping objects, paraplegia or quadriplegia.

How can an Atlanta neck injury lawyer help me?
When you suffer a neck injury through no fault of your own, the law says you have a right to a financial recovery. Usually this recovery will come from an insurance company, whether the injury happened in a car accident, a slip and fall accident, or at work. The insurance company has an obligation to cover the costs of your treatment and all other costs associated with your accident. But in most cases, they don’t want to. Your lawyer can help change that.
An insurance company is a business. They don’t look at your neck injury and see day after day of pain, or worker who can’t go back to work, or a life-changing disability. They look at your injury in terms of dollars. They want to pay the lowest amount possible, and they have an army of lawyers to back them up. A good neck injury attorney is your way to level the playing field and get the money you need.
Some of the tactics insurance companies will use include:
- Asking you misleading questions and using the answers against you
- Offering you quick money when you need it, if you sign away your rights
- Steering you toward a doctor who is loyal to the insurance company, not you
- Delaying your claim for months while your bills pile up
- Telling you this is their “last offer” when it’s only a fraction of what you need
A good neck injury lawyer knows how to fight back. When you call us, we will sit down with you and gather information about your injury. We’ll document the accident and how it happened, the doctor’s diagnosis, and all the costs you have to date. Most importantly we’ll get you in front of a doctor who truly understands neck injuries and figure out everything that needs to be done to help you recover. Then we can go to the insurance company armed with the paperwork that proves your claim.
In many cases, we can get you your financial recovery without ever going to court.
Is it true that insurance companies don’t like neck injury claims?
It depends. Insurance companies are often particularly hard on neck injury claims. This is because the full extent of the damage isn’t always obvious right away. An injury that seems minor at first can end up costing tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Insurers don’t want to pay out that kind of money for something that “looks” minor.
But they also use this knowledge against you. For example, insurance companies are well aware that a whiplash injury can cause months or years of pain. They also know that the pain may not set in until a day or two after the injury, and may get worse over time. Even though they know this, they will still accuse you of lying about the pain because you initially said you were fine.
The reality is an injury is an injury, no matter how minor it looks at first. If you’re living with daily pain—or worse—then you have a right to the cost of your care. We can help you get it.
How do I know if I have a case?
The only way to be sure is to get a professional legal opinion. However, we have seen successful neck injury claims for almost every kind of accident, including:
- Car, truck and motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Workplace injuries
- Assaults and muggings
- Faulty product injuries
- Nursing home neglect
No matter how your injury happened, you should talk to a lawyer.
What does it cost to hire a neck injury lawyer in Atlanta?
It shouldn’t cost you anything out of pocket, ever.
At John Foy & Associates we believe in helping injury victims. We have no interest in sending a bill to someone if we can’t help them. That’s why we use a “no risk” fee structure:
- You never pay for your consultation. It’s free.
- You pay nothing up front. There are no out-of-pocket expenses.
- If we don’t win you money, you never pay us at all.
Instead, we only take a percentage of the money we recover for you, when we recover it. We believe this is the fairest way to price our services.
Is there a deadline to file a neck injury claim in Atlanta?
Yes. All accident claims follow strict legal deadlines known as statutes of limitations. In Atlanta, these statutes are set by state and federal law, and they are different depending on the type of accident, how it happened, and whether there was a government entity involved. In some cases you could have up to two years, while in others you may have only weeks. You should speak to a lawyer as soon after your accident as possible.
