    Upper body injuries


    The term upper body injuries could refer to injuries to the head, neck, shoulders, face, upper back, arms, hands or chest. These types of injuries are common in road traffic accidents or accidents at work, but they could also be sustained after a slip, trip or fall. If you have sustained injuries to your upper body in an accident that was somebody else’s fault, then Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim the compensation you deserve. There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, so it’s a good idea to explore your options as soon as possible after your accident.

    How did your accident happen?

    You might be wondering how upper body injuries could be sustained. Here are just a few examples of the types of accident which could lead to an upper body injury:

    • Car accident causing whiplash or a broken arm
    • Slip or trip on a wet or damaged floor causing a fractured arm or wrist or upper back injuries
    • Falling from height leading to a head or neck injury
    • Something heavy collapsing on you (such as scaffolding) causing crush injuries to your chest
    • Factory accidents with heavy machinery causing hand and arm injuries

    If you’ve been injured in an accident at work, on the roads or in a public place and you believe somebody else is at fault, it’s time to seek advice from a personal injury lawyer. Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so there are no upfront legal fees to worry about.
