Compensation for cervical disk injuries after a personal injury accident
The types of compensations
for cervical disk injuries include the remuneration for the medical expenses that arise to treat the injury. The maximum insurance policy amount may not be enough to cover the treatment and the physical therapy needed for recovery after the injury. If this is the case, then the claimant may choose to opt out of settling with the insurance company and pursue damages in court. In most cases, the amount obtained in court will also cover the future medical treatment.
