How much could you receive in compensation for a neck injury?
The amount you could be awarded for a neck injury that has arisen as a result of a workplace accident could vary and is largely determined based on the severity of the injury.
Minor to moderate cases of whiplash could result in a few hundred pounds, whereas serious injuries such as breaks, strains, dislocation and others that can lead to paralysis may mean you receive thousands of pounds in compensation. Neck injuries of any kind can be incredibly painful, causing you to suffer greatly in the short term with the risk of many long-term complications.
There are many different types of accidents that can cause these types of injuries too, from falling debris to accidents involving vehicles, strain when lifting and more. If you believe your employer was in any way responsible for your injuries, take action with Accident Advice Helpline.

Neck injuries tend to be serious in nature, and can leave victims suffering many serious repercussions as a result.
It is often the case that those living with a neck injury have to take time off work in order to heal, and this can have a significant impact on household income. In addition to losing earnings, the victim may be simultaneously faced with rising outgoings, as the costs of medicines, treatment and other unexpected costs add up.
If someone else caused your accident, they should be responsible for paying for it, not you. As long as your accident took place within the past three years, you could be within your rights to make a claim and hold them accountable for their actions.
We are responsible for over £30 million being awarded a year and are highly recommended by Esther Rantzen.
