Injuries to the neck can be extremely painful and very serious. They range from catastrophic injuries leading to quadriplegia, to prolapsed discs and damage of the soft tissue in the neck, such as tendons, ligaments or muscles.
If you have suffered a neck injury in an accident, the compensation you could receive will depend on the physical disability caused, and the nature and extent of any ongoing symptoms. The highest levels of compensation are reserved for cases where there is permanent disability and severe physical limitations, with minor whiplash injuries receiving smaller settlements. You may even be able to claim if you have an existing neck condition which has been aggravated or made worse as a result of an accident.
Typical Compensation Awards:
- Severe: up to £106,000
- Moderate: up to £27,500
- Minor: up to £5,600
