Inter Law? – Broken Neck Injury Claims, Damaged Neck in Road Accident

Neck Injuries

There are a wide range of neck injuries, many are found in conjunction with back and shoulder injuries.

up to £85,000

The highest level of compensation is when the injury shatters leaving the claimant disabled for life.

The lowest amount of compensation would be rewarded to claimants who suffer from minor strain, may not have time off work and only suffer the symptoms for at least a month.

Severe Neck Injuries

up to £82,000

This would be neck injuries associated with paraplegia or resulting in permanent spastic quadriparesis, another would be when the injured had been wearing a neck collar 24 hours a day for a period of years but still have little or no movement in their neck and constantly suffers headaches.

£36,000 to £71,500

Other types of injuries which fall short of the above but would give rise to disability e.g. permanent damage to the brachial plexus would be rewarded between the compensation figure shown above.

Soft tissue or ruptured tendons resulting in permanent disability would get up to £30,000 in compensation. The compensation would depend on the length of the injury time which the most serious symptoms were affecting the claimant.

£13,500 to £18,000

This would be when the injury leaves the claimant vulnerable to further trauma and some limitations of daily activities.

Moderate Neck Injuries

£7,500 – £13,750

This would be cases where the claimant has suffered whiplash or a wrenching type injury. Serious limitations of movement, permanent or reoccurring pain and discomfort with the possible need for surgery increasing the possibility of further trauma.

This bracket would apply to moderate whiplash injuries where the period of recovery has been fairly protracted and where there remains an increased vulnerability to further trauma.
