Cervical Spine Fracture

San Jose Spine Injury Attorneys

The spine is divided into groups, one of which is the cervical spine or neck area of the spine. A cervical fracture, also called a broken neck, can come as the result of an auto accident or any other serious accident involving trauma to the neck and the vertebrae of the cervical spine. These injuries can be catastrophic for their victims and may result in loss of sensation, paralysis and death.

For victims of cervical spine injuries, and their family members, obtaining compensation for medical treatment and other losses is crucial to the recovery process. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye & Fitting, our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience pursuing benefits for injury victims in California. We work hard to provide the benefits that our clients deserve.

San Mateo Cervical Spine Fracture Attorneys

In order to cause a cervical fracture to the C-vertebrae, strong force is necessary, often from a severe and sudden blow to the neck or head. In many cases, this force comes from motor vehicle accidents and fall accidents. In other cases, sports injuries, including those involving bicycles and pedestrians, are to blame for injuries.

After the injury has occurred, severe pain will usually be present, along with bruising and swelling. When the damage is bad enough, however, numbness and paralysis can result from a cervical spine fracture. Complete immobilization should be done as soon as possible in order to keep the victim safe. In many cases, surgery will follow and be used to stabilize the neck after a fracture.

    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.
