Have you sustained neck injuries?
Although neck injuries aren’t always serious, they can be life-threatening in some cases. Whilst many neck injuries can heal with the appropriate treatment, a badly broken neck can be fatal so it’s important that you seek medical help straightaway if you suspect that you have suffered this type of injury.
If you require urgent help, it’s likely that paramedics will attend the scene and they will transport you to the nearest hospital or medical clinic. In most cases, they are able to stabilise the patient and keep them very still which can prevent the injury from worsening and can, potentially, save lives.
Once doctors are able to scan and x-ray the affected area, they can make a full diagnosis and begin to treat you accordingly. Fortunately, advances in medical treatment and surgery techniques mean that many patients with neck injuries are able to make a full recovery.
Should you make a claim with personal injury claim solicitors in Cumbria?
If you’ve sustained head or neck injuries and they weren’t your fault, you may be keen to make a compensation claim and personal injury claim solicitors in Cumbria may be able to help you. If someone or something else caused your injury, they should be held accountable and making a claim against them will ensure that they are.
How much compensation will you receive?
The amount of compensation you’re awarded is likely to depend on the type of injuries you’ve sustained. Whilst many people do make a full recovery from neck injuries, some patients are left with on-going symptoms. For example, you may experience pain or discomfort or you may have on-going mobility issues. If so, it’s likely that you will be awarded additional compensation to reflect this.
Although compensation can’t rectify your injuries, it can help you whilst you’re recovering. If you’re unable to work, obtaining compensation can prevent you from having to worry about your finances and you may even want to use your pay-out to fund extra medical help and support.
