Every day hundreds of thousands of businesses take every conceivable step they can to protect their employees and to make sure they can work safely. While there are Health and Safety rules that make this a reality, it is also the case that businesses have a legal duty of care to everyone who works for them.
In the vast majority of cases businesses meet and exceed these rules and duties, and do an excellent job in following all safety procedures that are applicable to their particular business.
However there is the potential for accidents to happen, as there is in all situations. In some cases potential hazards can be spotted ahead of time and dealt with so they are unlikely to cause accidents. However if this is not done there is the potential for an accident to occur that could have been avoided.
In some cases people end up claiming compensation for workplace neck injury to see if they can be compensated for the injury they suffered. On occasion the injury can prevent them from working in the future, for a certain period of time or even permanently. This can be devastating in more ways than one.
Is a workplace neck injury likely to be serious?
It all depends on how severe the injury is and how it occurs. Sometimes you may be lucky and only experience whiplash or tissue damage or bruising, all of which should naturally disappear after a while. However it is always important to get any neck injury checked out.
You may have a fractured vertebrae and this can lead to symptoms including numbness and even paralysis if it is not properly identified and treated as quickly as possible. Never assume everything is fine – always see a doctor or visit a casualty department if you think there could be something wrong.
