If you are involved in an accident that was not your fault in which you injure your neck then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against the responsible party. This is because they are likely to have owed you a duty of care and the accident is likely to have been caused by a breach of that duty.

When talking about neck injuries people usually think of whiplash which is an injury to the neck (usually following road traffic accidents) caused by the neck being thrown backwards and forwards, extending it beyond comfort. There are of course other ways in which the neck can be injured, particularly by way of slips, trips and falls.

The injuries to the neck following an accident can range from being relatively minor to quite serious and the amount of compensation that will be awarded will reflect the extent of the injuries. The following is a list of some of the average compensation awards:

•    Whiplash – up to £3,000
•    Fractures and Dislocations – up to £25,000
•    Permanent Disability – over £25,000

Neck Injury Accident Claim

In order to make a claim you should instruct one of our personal injury solicitors** in Bristol to help you with your case. They will investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident in order to establish liability, appoint a medical expert to report on the extent of your injuries, prepare other evidence such as witness statements and negotiate a settlement on your behalf with the negligent party (or their insurance company).

If you would like to make a claim then you should make sure that you speak to one of our personal injury solicitors** in Bristol within three years of the date of the accident. Any claim brought outside of this time may be barred and will require special permission from the court which will only be granted in limited circumstances.

To help one of our personal injury solicitors** in Bristol with your case there are certain steps you should take following an accident including taking pictures of the scene, noting down the details of any witnesses and if it is following a road traffic accident, record the vehicle’s details including make, model, registration number and colour.
