A guide to compensation for neck damage that has occurred because of a whiplash injury in Crewkerne

Whiplash is undoubtedly one of the most common personal injuries. From workplace accidents to road traffic incidents, it can occur because of a whole host of accidents. Nonetheless, what most people fail to realize is that the symptoms and effects of a whiplash injury in Crewkerne differ dramatically. From severe back injuries to minor shoulder injuries, there is a great variation of injuries and thus whiplash compensation claims differ a lot. This post is going to reveal a bit more regarding the various neck injuries that can arise from a whiplash injury in Crewkerne and consequently the compensation you could be entitled too.

Minor Neck Injuries

Minor neck injuries tend to result in compensation ranging from £875 to £5,150. If your whiplash symptoms are likely to disappear within a few weeks you are looking at something closer to £875. However, if recovery is likely to take between a year and two you can expect to receive a much greater amount. 

Moderate Neck Injuries

Moderate whiplash neck injuries usually have a minimum compensation amount of £5,150 and a maximum of £16,400. You are likely to receive close to the maximum amount if you have suffered from permanent or recurring pain, serious limitation of movement or you require further surgery. 

Severe Neck Injuries

Last but not least, serious neck injuries as a result of whiplash range from £16,400 to £97,500. At the lower end of serious injuries we have the likes of dislocations and fractures. However, if your injury has left you with permanent spastic quadriparesis, incomplete paraplegia or little or no movement to your neck, you can expect to be entitled to a fee close to the maximum amount.

Remember – every case is different. You also have out of pocket expenses to take into account. Also, don’t forget – medical attention is a must, even for minor injuries!
