Are you claiming compensation in South Staffordshire for neck injuries?
Although these types of injuries are relatively common, injuring your neck can be one of the most dangerous types of injuries to sustain. Some, more minor injuries, such as whiplash can even last for weeks and months, due to the sensitive nature of the bones, muscles and tendons in this area.
In order to try and prevent any further damage or injuries from occurring, doctors may often advise you to wear a neck brace after an accident which has affected your neck. By minimising movement in the area, it can allow the injury to heal and prevent further pain from occurring.
Of course, a neck brace isn’t suitable in every situation and if your injuries are particularly serious, they may result in life-changing injuries. Just like spinal injuries, neck injuries could affect your mobility on a permanent basis.
Even if a neck injury is only suspected, medical personnel will often try and prevent a patient from moving until it is has been confirmed whether or not a back or neck injury has occurred. This preventative care can often help people to avoid more serious injuries and can enable doctors to repair some injuries.
If you’ve suffered this type of injury, you could need to take quite some time off work to recover. Unfortunately, this can be stressful, especially if you are the only person in your family who is working or if you are the main breadwinner. If you don’t receive sick pay from your employer, you may feel that you can’t afford to take time off work. However, working whilst injured is extremely dangerous and you could put yourself at risk of further injury and you could even cause someone else to suffer an injury in the workplace.
Rather than putting yourself under financial stress and trying to return to work too quickly, why not consider making a claim for compensation in South instead? If the injuries you experienced weren’t your fault, it’s possible that you could be eligible to receive compensation in South Staffordshire.
By making a successful claim for compensation in South Staffordshire you could help to alleviate any financial stress you may be under and give yourself enough time to recover properly before you return to work, if you are able to do so.
