On-The-Job Neck & Spine Injuries
We Fight Hard to Obtain Maximum Compensation for Neck Injuries
A strained neck, a herniated cervical disc, or a fractured vertebra in your neck can affect almost every aspect of your life. In addition to neck pain, you may also suffer from headaches, arm or shoulder pain, and numbness or tingling in your hand or fingers. You may find it difficult to turn around when backing up your car. Typing or holding the phone may cause increased pain. Lifting up your child or getting a good night's sleep may be impossible because of your neck injury.
If you injured your neck on the job or in a car accident caused by someone else's negligence, you deserve compensation for your losses. Working with an aggressive injury and accident lawyer can improve your changes of obtaining the workers' compensation benefits or personal injury settlement you deserve.
At Strong Law Offices, we are passionate about protecting your rights in lawsuits and work comp claims related to neck injuries and spinal cord injuries.

Dedicated to Protecting the Rights of Injured People Throughout Central and Northern Illinois
From offices in Peoria, Springfield and Bloomington, we represent people with neck injuries throughout Central Illinois and in Northern Illinois locations such as Joliet, LaSalle, Ottawa, Kankakee and Will County. Our attorneys have the legal skills and medical knowledge needed to successfully handle claims for minor neck injuries and serious and disabling spinal cord injuries, including:
- Muscle sprain or strain
- Herniated or ruptured discs in the neck
- Bulging or slipped discs in the neck
- Neck injury requiring disc removal, disc replacement or cervical fusion surgery
- Nerve impingement
- Fractured cervical vertebrae
- Spinal cord injury
If your neck injury happened at work, your employer and the work comp insurance company may try to deny the diagnostic tests, medical examination and treatment you need. We fight hard to help you get the medical treatment you need after a work injury. Depending on the facts of your case, you may qualify for lifetime medical benefits for treatment of a work-related neck injury.
Under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act, you may also be entitled to wage loss benefits, a lump sum payment or permanent total disability benefits. We regularly take workers' compensation cases involving cervical spine and neck injuries to arbitration at the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission and succeed in obtaining these benefits for our clients.
At Strong Law Offices, we handle all workers' compensation and personal injury claims on a contingent fee basis. In other words, you pay nothing unless we collect a settlement or recovery on your behalf. In workers' compensation claims, our fees are determined by Illinois statute.
