Neck Injuries Can Occur in Any Fall and May Be Serious
Neck injuries can range in severity from relatively minor pain and limited range of motion for a few days, to permanent damage to the spinal cord and paralysis from the neck down.
Suspected neck injuries after a fall can call for immobilization, an ambulance ride to the hospital, and an examination at the local emergency department. Serious injuries that jeopardize the spinal cord may require:
- Surgical repair.
- An extended period of immobilization.
- Physical and occupational therapy.
- Wheelchairs, lifts, and other support devices.
- Ongoing care.
As a result, the costs for treating a neck injury could cause additional stress and worry for your family. This is why we take on fall injury cases on a contingency basis. If we agree to work with you to pursue damages in your neck injury case, we will commit the financial support necessary to build your case and take it to court, if necessary. We only receive our fees if we secure a settlement or other payout in your case.

Pursuing a Payout in a Tampa Neck Injuries Case After a Fall
Distasio Law Firm investigates every slip and fall, trip and fall, or fall from a height case we handle. We gather evidence and enlist the help of experts, when necessary, to support our client’s case and develop a strong claim. This may allow us to reach an out-of-court settlement with the insurance company representing the liable party, effectively holding them accountable and recovering damages for our client.
On the other hand, sometimes we are not able to reach a fair agreement, and we need to take a case to court. When this occurs, we turn the information used to support the insurance claim into a strong argument for the judge and jury, and seek a court award to compensate our client for damages that could include:
- All current and future medical care and related expenses.
- Ongoing care costs for catastrophic injuries.
- Current and future lost wages and reduced ability to earn.
- Property damages.
- Out-of-pocket expenses related to the fall or injuries.
- Pain and suffering.
- Mental anguish.
Occasionally, serious neck injuries suffered in a fall can lead to complications, and the victim may pass away. This may support a wrongful death action in a Hillsborough County court, or in another nearby jurisdiction. Our team may be able to help you pursue this type of action based on the stipulations outlined in Florida Statute § 768.21.
Under Florida’s statute of limitations law, Florida Statute § 95.11, there are time limits on when you need to take legal action. In general, you have four years to go to court based on an injury accident and two years for a wrongful death case. However, there are many facets of these cases that may alter the deadline.
We recommend reaching out to Distasio Law Firm to confirm the timeline for moving forward with your case as soon as possible after your injuries occur.
