Each time a person gets into their car, they run the risk of being involved in a car accident. Even the safest of drivers can fall victim to a car accident when a negligent driver is on the roads. While some collisions may be more severe than others, even minor car crashes can result in serious injuries as a result of the negligent party’s actions.

How Can a Car Accident Cause Cervical Radiculopathy?

When out for a drive, the last thing you likely would expect to happen is a car accident. Car accidents can leave the drivers and passengers involved with severe injuries, including those affecting the spinal region of the body. 

The impact from car accidents can lead to sudden downward pressure on the spine that can result in a serious spinal injury like a herniated disc or nerve damage of the spine. Nerves run from the vertebral column of the spine and transmit signals to the rest of our body. So, when these nerves become pinched or compressed at the base of the spine, that condition can lead to symptoms called cervical radiculopathy. 

Cervical radiculopathy is a condition known to cause pain, burning, numbness, weakness, and tingling behind the shoulder blades, down the arms, and into the hands and fingers. If you are suffering from cervical radiculopathy due to a car accident, our team of car accident lawyers can help you pursue a fair settlement by filing a strong personal injury claim. 

How Much Is Your Cervical Radiculopathy Car Accident Settlement Worth?

After you have been in a car accident that left you suffering from cervical radiculopathy, you have the legal right to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury claim. In the state of Massachusetts, car accident victims have up to three years to file a claim according to the statute of limitations. While this may seem like a lot of time, the claims process can take a long time at some points so it is important you retain the help of one of our lawyers as soon as possible. 

When filing your personal injury claim, you may be wondering how much you can expect to collect from your cervical radiculopathy car accident settlement. Unfortunately, there is no set amount you can expect to collect from your claim. However, there are various factors that may contribute to how much you will receive for your settlement. Those factors are as follows:

  • Medical Expenses: After suffering a spinal injury that has led to cervical radiculopathy due to another party’s negligence, you may require extensive medical care which can be expensive. You should be compensated for the costs associated.
  • Lost Wages: If suffering from cervical radiculopathy has prevented you from being able to do your job, you should be compensated for all present and future wages lost. 
  • Pain and Suffering: Victims of car accidents that are suffering from cervical radiculopathy should be compensated for the pain and suffering they have endured. 
  • Property Damage: If your property, like your car, was damaged during the accident, you should be compensated for the cost to repair or replace it. 

Our car accident lawyers have extensive experience dealing with the aggressive tactics of the insurance companies and will negotiate a fair settlement amount for your case.
