Neck Injury Claims Compensation: If you’ve suffered from a neck injury, claim the compensation you deserve today.
Suffering from a neck injury can change your life completely, and when sustained through no fault of your own, that frustration increases tenfold.
The most vital use for the neck is that it connects your head to your body. This means it contains vital nerves and allows your brain to send signals to the rest of your body. If you suffer a severe neck injury you risk these signals becoming restricted and may lead to slight or complete paralysis.
Your neck is made up of bones, muscles, soft tissue and nerves. Damage to your neck can affect your lifestyle in a number of ways:
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Restricted Movement
- Constant Pain
- Inability to drive
- Absence from work
- Decrease in physical fitness
- May result in full or partial paralysis
- Painful surgical treatments may be required
Keep records of all medical visits, including transport receipts and prescriptions. Expenses for these will be included in your compensation amount and the more proof you have recorded the higher amount you’ll be able to claim for.
Many neck injuries arise out of road traffic accidents however they can also be sustained in work accidents or tripping accidents – no matter how your injury occurred, if it was at no fault of your own then we can help you to claim the damages that you deserve.
Claims for Neck Injuries
The most common neck injury claim is when a person has suffered damage to the soft tissue in the neck. This is more popularly known as whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a person suffers a sudden jolt to the neck, like a car accident, which causes the neck to jolt backwards and forwards suddenly.

Whiplash can be very painful and may cause a person to need time off work. If you have experienced whiplash through no fault of your own you may be entitled to compensation. You can find more information about whiplash here: http://beardsellspersonalinjury.co.uk/personal-injury/whiplash/
Another type of neck injury is when a person fractures a bone within the neck. This is a very serious injury which in extreme cases can lead to partial or full paralysis. In a case when paralysis has been the outcome, the compensation claim will reflect the extremity of the case.
Victims of these kinds of accidents may have to employ carers for a certain period of time, leave their place of employment and pay for numerous medical specialists and expensive pain treatment. All of this will be taken into account when building your case.
If you suffer a neck injury we recommend you seek medical attention immediately. The sooner you are diagnosed to stronger your case with become.
