Neck injuries can range from soft tissue injuries through to potentially life-changing injuries such as a broken neck. If you’ve suffered a neck injury of any kind due to someone else’s negligence, whether in a car accident, a slip or trip, or in any other circumstances, contact us.

Our solicitors have helped many people in the same situation as you to claim compensation for their neck injury.

How To Make A Neck Injury Claim

For your free initial consultation, call our personal injury specialists on 0800 056 4110. We’ll start by asking you some questions about how your injury happened, who you feel is at fault, and how your life has been affected. We’ll then assess your case and look at the evidence.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

Neck injuries may be the result of a road traffic accident, a slip, trip or fall, a sports injury or from lifting heavy loads. We can help you to claim for:

Neck injuries can vary from mild and temporary to life-changing. You may suffer a loss of earnings if you’re unable to manage your job, or you may need to retrain completely, for example if you can no longer lift heavy loads.

In very serious circumstances, spinal injuries may cause paralysis, which will completely transform your life. Our serious injuries team specialise in these cases and can help you access rehabilitation as well as compensation.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Neck Injury Claim?

Generally, you’ll have three years from the date of the incident to make a claim. However, there are some exceptions to these time limits, such as if you were abroad at the time or if you suffered a criminal assault. No matter what your circumstances are, we suggest that you get in touch with us as soon as possible to ensure you don’t run out of time.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Neck Injury?

As neck injuries can vary enormously in severity, there are no set compensation amounts for these kinds of claims. We’ll assess your settlement based on:

  • The physical damage and pain
  • Long-term impacts on you and your loved ones
  • Rehabilitation or changes to living circumstances
  • Whether or not you’ll need ongoing treatment
  • Loss of earnings.

If your injury has been life-changing, we have a serious injury team with years of experience in the most severe circumstances. We can help you access rehabilitation, put you in contact with home modification experts and, where applicable, can secure interim compensation payments while you wait for your claim to settle.

No Win No Fee Neck Injury Claims

Most of our neck injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be taken from your final compensation.

Why Choose Us?

We have offices up and down the country, so you’ll never be far from one of our expert teams. Over the years, we’ve secured billions of pounds in compensation for our personal injury clients.

We understand that compensation is about more than just the physical damage. That’s why our support and rehabilitation teams can help to arrange rehabilitation, counselling and even modifications to your home. We may also be able to help cover the cost of ongoing treatments while we process your claim.
