    Neck injury compensation claims

    Accident Advice Helpline lawyers dealing with neck injury compensation claims often hear about neck strains and neck sprains. The neck is made up of several small bones called vertebra and these are held together with structures called ligaments.

    These are made out from fibrous tissue and without them our necks would simply fall apart! In a neck strain, these ligaments are stretched or torn or both because the head has moved beyond its normal range of movement – this happens when the car comes to a very sudden halt. The result is neck stiffness and pain.

    There are also muscles in our neck – they allow us to move our heads up and down and from side to side.  During the impact these muscles can get stretched or torn and a muscle sprain is caused – the muscles feel stiff and sore and it can be difficult to move the neck.

    Together, these symptoms are sometimes referred to as whiplash and it is the most common neck injury that occurs in car accidents. Nerves can also be involved in a neck injury following a car accident. The cervical nerves leave the spinal cord in the neck area and during a car accident they can become trapped or irritated or pinched. This can lead to symptoms in the shoulder or arm which is the part of the body that this nerve controls.

    If the collision has put  a large strain on the neck then discs can become misshapen and bulge out from their normal position – this is called a herniated disc. Pain, numbness and weakness can result and in some cases surgery is needed to rectify the problem. Physiotherapy is often prescribed as a way of treating neck injuries and a mixture of manipulation, exercises, postural advice and ultra sound may be used.
