Our Experienced Attorneys will Fight for You

Serving all of Upstate NY including Albany, Troy, Schenectady, and Saratoga Springs

At the Law Offices of Hacker Murphy, we realize that a neck injury is both scary and debilitating. The pain is felt with every move of the head and you don’t know if or when you will fully recover.

From our decades of experience in complex personal injury litigation, our attorneys know that a sore or stiff neck after a car crash or other violent impact may be a symptom of more serious injury. We fiercely pursue your rightful compensation once the full extent of damage is known.

If you suffered a neck injury through the fault of others, contact us now for a free consultation.

Can Neck and Whiplash Injuries Create Long Term Issues?

A neck injury is not always revealed on an X-ray or MRI. We work with clients and their doctors to support claims with medical documentation, including tests that can measure pain. We have handled every type of neck-related injury claim:

  • Cervical fractures (broken vertebrae)
  • Herniated disc (dislocated neck)
  • Neck sprains (whiplash injury)
  • Radicular pain or weakness (pinched nerve)
  • Cervical fusion or discectomy
  • Spinal cord damage (paralysis or impaired function)

We strive to provide coverage for future medical treatment that may be indicated, including vertebral fusion or disk surgery, pain management, or physical therapy. We may bring in other professionals to forecast lost earning capacity and corroborate lost range of motion and other permanent or lasting disability.

Hacker Murphy has handled neck injuries from auto accidents, especially rear-end collisions, as well as construction site injuries and slip-and-fall accidents. We are skilled at establishing negligence and holding those parties and their insurers accountable for losses.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.

  • If arrested, what steps can I take on my behalf?

    1. Do not discuss your situation with anyone except your attorney.

    2. Unless your attorney says otherwise, do not discuss your case with law enforcement.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

    4. Remain calm and courteous. Allow your attorney to speak for you to ensure that your rights are protected and you are given all the benefits afforded to you under the law.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
