I am guessing you will have a difficult case, not necessarily because of whether it is compensible but because of the mix of should and cervical injuries. You should talk to an attorney about all of these issues because the mix of injuries could give the company an opportunity to deny you claim or not accept all of the conditions you now suffer from. These conditions could effect your future earning capacity. You definitely need someone to manage the claim and make sure you are treated fairly. The insurance company is not in the business of just paying claims. Good luck.
