Whether it is a simple case of whiplash or a more serious injury such as paralysis, you may be able to claim for your neck injury. As long as another party is at fault for your accident, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get the compensation you deserve.
Causes of neck injury
As the home of our spinal cord, windpipe and major arteries, our necks are a crucial part of our bodies; however, the neck can also be our greatest vulnerability. The forces involved in collisions, falls and accidents combined with the weight of our bodies and heads can easily pull and twist the neck and cause damage.
In many cases neck injury will simply be whiplash or other such minor muscular complaints or strains, but in more severe cases the bones of the spine or the nerves of the spinal cord can suffer damage. Damage to these can result in reduced mobility, varying degrees of paralysis and, in the worst cases, fatalities.
Such injuries can be caused by almost any sort of accident; car crashes, slips and trips, violent crimes and sports can all easily damage the neck, even with proper protective gear. If you have been the victim of any such accident, the friendly advisers at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you to claim the compensation you deserve.
How do I claim for a neck injury?
In any case where you fear serious injury, the first step is to seek medical attention; whether this is emergency care or your personal doctor does not matter. Once you have received treatment to secure your recovery, it is time to contact a professional personal injury law firm.
