Head and neck injuries can impact your mobility and have a serious effect on your life – that’s because your neck is connected to your arms, shoulders and your back, so any kind of movement or activity could exacerbate your injuries, causing pain.
Head and neck injuries are one of the most common types of injury sustained in car crashes, but it might be that you’ve been injured in an accident whilst driving a vehicle for work. However your accident occurred, if somebody else is to blame, we can help you claim personal injury compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of happy customers to claim compensation for head and neck injuries and we could help you too, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.
How have your injuries affected your life?
The complicated network of tendons and ligaments in the neck can be easily injured in a car accident and the most common cause of head and neck injuries is whiplash after a collision.
Whilst most people make a good recovery from whiplash, it can take weeks or even months before your injuries heal fully and in some cases you may suffer ongoing pain and symptoms years after your accident. If you’ve suffered more serious head and neck injuries, such as a broken neck, you may have been paralysed or your mobility may be affected.
Serious head injuries could impact your brain and affect your behaviour and mood, and it could be that you need care to do things you once took for granted, like cooking meals and getting dressed.
We’ll take into account the impact your injuries have had on your life when we work out your personal injury settlement, and you’ll be compensated not only for your pain and suffering but also any financial impact your injuries have had, such as loss of earnings.
Accidents at work
If you’ve been injured whilst driving a vehicle for work, your employer could be held liable if the vehicle you’re driving in isn’t safe and well-maintained.
It may be that the other driver was to blame, and you can claim personal injury compensation from their insurer, provided they have car insurance.
We’ve helped hundreds of people claim compensation for head and neck injuries sustained in work driving accidents, so why not pick up the phone and call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out how we can help you?
