Neck Injuries Compensation

If you damage your neck in an accident that was not your fault, then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against the negligent party. The neck is a fragile part of the body and supports the most valuable part of the body; the head. Neck injuries can be severe, and therefore the compensation awards can be substantial.

There are many ways in which you could injure your neck, the most common being either slips, trips, and falls or whiplash following a road traffic accident. Whiplash is the term given to an injury to the neck caused by the sudden extension of the neck, usually as a result of being hit from behind. The impact or collision does not have to be severe to result in whiplash. Whiplash can also be caused by falls.

If you would like to make a neck injury claim, then you should enlist the services of a personal injury solicitor** in Cardiff. They will investigate the circumstances leading up to the accident, establish liability and negotiate a settlement on your behalf.

In order to make a successful compensation claim, you would need to instruct a personal injury solicitor ** in Cardiff within three years of the date of the accident that resulted in the neck injury. In the case of a child, the claim must be made within three years of the child’s 18th birthday.

How Much Compensation for Neck Injuries?

The amount of compensation that can be claim following a neck injury will depend on the seriousness of the injury and will be based on government guidelines and case law. The following are examples of the amount of compensation that could be awarded following certain neck injuries:

  • Minor Whiplash – up to £5,000
  • Serious Whiplash – up to £15,000
  • Other Serious Neck Injuries – up to £100,000
  • Paralysis – up to £250,000

In addition to the above, a claimant can also reclaim any other losses they have endured such as medical expenses, care costs and loss of income. There could also be a claim for psychological injuries and our personal injury solicitors** will be able to inform you further on the compensation levels.
