What Should I Do Next?
In order to make a successful neck injury compensation claim, it is necessary to take the correct steps to ensure your case is handled properly. Firstly, you should speak to a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible. This will give you an opportunity to discuss the specific details of your case with a legal expert and receive advice on the next steps to take.
Once the compensation process begins, your solicitor will contact the responsible party, before collecting evidence to demonstrate why you are entitled to claim compensation. This will help to ensure that you are able to receive the maximum amount of compensation available to you.
What Can Affect the Value of a Compensation Claim?
If you have suffered a neck injury, the amount of compensation you are able to secure will depend on the severity of the injury, as well as the impact it has had on your life, finances and your ability to work.
Neck injuries can be particularly debilitating, affecting your mobility and potentially causing longer term conditions. The neck is a delicate and complex area of the human body that houses the spinal cord, which is crucial to the transmission of messages from the brain throughout the body.
As a result, an injury to the neck can have serious and sometimes lifelong implications for the sufferer. In the most severe cases, victims can lose all feeling and ability to move parts of the body.
Compensation can be helpful by ensuring you are able to pay for treatment, rehabilitation and equipment that may be required as a result of your injury.
How Can Compensation Help?
A neck injury can be life-altering, leading to months or years of reduced mobility, medical treatment and suffering. Making a neck injury compensation claim can reimburse you for the costs you have incurred as a direct result of your injury.
The compensation we secure can cover:
- Loss of past or future earnings
- Rehabilitation and expert medical treatment
- Transport costs
- Equipment and modifications to your home

About Neck Injuries
There are many subtle variations in the types and severity of neck injuries and the extent of their impact on the sufferer. Our highly experienced solicitors have acted on behalf of clients who have suffered from mild muscle and ligament strains and fractures, serious disc lesions and brachial plexus damage.
However, the most severe types of neck injury involve spinal cord damage, which can occur when the vertebrae and discs in the neck are crushed or shifted out of place.
Neck injuries can occur in a range of circumstances, such as a fall from a height, a car accident or a motorbike accident. We have also helped those who have sustained neck injuries whilst at work, for example, in a factory accident or after being hit by falling debris on a construction site.
The most severe instances of neck injury can result in:
- Quadriplegia (also known as tetraplegia), which is the full or partial loss of use of all four limbs
- Paraplegia, which is the partial or total loss of use of the legs
Those neck injuries that are less severe can still have a significant impact on a sufferer’s life, leading to one or more of the following symptoms:
- Chronic pain
- Reduced mobility
- Muscle spasms
- Weakness in the limbs
- Pins and needles in the arms
