    Back and Neck injury specialist compensation claims

    Back and neck injuries are some of the most common types of injuries that personal injury compensation is claimed for.

    The back plays an important role in supporting the trunk of the body. It helps bend, twist and lift. The neck plays the vital role in supporting the head. Any injury to the back or neck can cause severe pain and have a negative impact on your daily life.

    Common types of accidents that cause back and neck injuries

    • Motor vehicle accident
    • Slip and fall accidents
    • Construction site accident
    • Work related accident
    • Medical negligence 

    Common back and neck injury specialist compensation claims can be made for:

    • Whiplash – neck injury caused by rapid flexion and extension of the neck during a collision accident. Often the ligaments, tendons and muscles are damaged.
    • Sprain – injury to the muscles.
    • Strains  – injury to ligaments
    • Herniated disc – soft substance on the inside of the disc is pushed out
    • Fracture – a break a cervical bone on spinal column
    • Spinal cord injury – damage caused to the spinal cord by a fracture or dislocation

    What to do if you have a back or neck injury

    • Seek medical assistance

    Back and neck injuries can be serious. Try not to move and seek medical assistance as soon as possible. You may need an x-ray, MRI or CT scan to see the full extent of your injuries. Appropriate treatment can then be given, especially to relieve any pain you are suffering.

    • Keep a record of the details

    Whether it was a car accident or accident at work, take a note who was involved and exactly what happened.

    • Report the accident

    If it was a motor vehicle accident, make sure you contact the police. Their report will assist you when making a back or neck injury compensation claim. If the accident occurred at work, report it to the relevant person and make a note in the Accident Book.
