Muscle injury


What is a muscle injury?

A muscle injury is a strain, pull or tear of any muscle in the body, such as in the leg, arm or neck. Muscle injuries are often associated with personal injury claims, because in many cases they occur due to someone else’s error, misjudgement or negligence. A common muscle injury is whiplash, a painful strain of the neck muscles often resulting from a car crash caused by the fast movement of the head on impact. Other types may include:

  • Repetitive strain injury incurred at work;
  • Back strain as a result of heavy lifting; and
  • Sporting injuries to the hamstring or groin.

Types of muscle injury vary in severity; some will have mild swelling and discomfort, whilst others will mean that the victim is unable to use the muscle at all.

Am I entitled to claim personal injury compensation?

Your injury must fulfil the following three criteria in order to be eligible for a claim:

  • The accident occurred within the past three years;
  • The accident was someone else’s fault, not your own; and
  • You required medical attention for your resulting injuries.

If all of the above apply to your muscle injury, it is advised that you get in touch with a solicitor to progress your claim. A tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second calculator is a useful way in which to confirm your eligibility to claim, and will also give you an idea of how much compensation you may be entitled to. This means that you can manage your own expectations throughout the claims process.
