Suffering a neck injury can be a traumatising experience. Even a minor injury can result in months of pain and limited movement, whilst more serious results can include paralysis; as such, it is important to seek neck injury advice from a personal injury specialist in order to gain compensation.
The friendly advisors at Accident Advice Helpline can quickly evaluate your neck injury claim and help to ease the financial burden it may have caused. Whether the result of a car crash, violent crime or sporting incident, a neck injury can result in substantial treatment costs whilst decimating your earnings. These financial burdens can be a source of worry and doubt; as such, it is important to make your neck injury claim as soon as possible.
Types of neck injury
Neck injuries can come in many forms but they can all have a serious affect on your standard of living due to the vital functions the neck provides. One of the most common neck injuries is whiplash, which is caused by almost any sudden impact; whiplash can cause pain for many months.
Similarly it is possible to suffer many forms of strains, broken bones and bruising in and around the neck area that can cause discomfort and limited movement during the healing process.
In the worst cases, neck injuries can lead to serious damage to your spine or spinal cord. This can have devastating impacts such as partial or complete paralysis and, in the worst cases, can even be fatal. The factor all such serious neck injuries include is the pain and limitations inflicted of your existence – possibly for life – that can lead to loss of earnings and quickly-escalating medical costs.
If you think you may have a claim, calling Accident Advice Helpline today will allow one of our friendly advisors to quickly offer you neck injury advice whilst connecting you with a specialist neck injury solicitor to process your claim.
Claiming for a neck injury
When sustaining a neck injury, the first step is to secure medical advice to evaluate your condition and to secure the correct treatment. Once you have done this it is time to think about compensation and contacting a professional law firm.
Accident Advice Helpline offers years of personal injury claims handling experience and a network of specialist solicitors to ensure that your claim is processed efficiently and painlessly.
In order to claim successfully, your neck injury must be the fault of another party that you can claim against. In cases of slips, trips or falls there must be a public body or private property holder at fault due to poor maintenance or improper signage. This could be an authority that failed to treat the pothole, railing or paved surface that directly caused your accident or a wet floor or work area that was improperly signed.
Whatever the cause of your neck injury, Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you to claim the compensation you deserve. With our simple 30-second test we can evaluate your claim and connect you to a specialist solicitor to make the entire process simple and hassle-free.
