Compensation for neck injuries at work

The workplace is one of the leading sources of personal injury claims. As this is an area where we spend a great deal of our lives, it is also an area where there are a wide range of potential hazards and as a result a number of injuries can be incurred.

The neck is an area of our body that while relatively small is responsible for the safe passage of many of the important messages that travel from our brain throughout our body, and for this reason any injuries in this area can lead to a serious breakdown in other areas of the body. This can result in partial or even full paralysis, which can have a direct impact on your lifestyle. If you receive a neck injury through the negligence of someone in your workplace then you could be eligible for a compensation claim. 

How can neck injuries occur in the workplace?

When it comes to your workplace there are a range of accidents that can occur to leave you with a neck injury, some of the most common include:

  • Falls from height – If you fall from a substantial height such as off a ledge or off scaffolding then you can incur serious neck injuries which can result from an impact with either your head or back 
  • Trips and slips – If you trip over something or slip over in your workplace, including down a flight of stairs, then you could be eligible to make a claim, especially if the area wasn’t correctly lit
  • Falling items – If you are working in a factory environment then items may be stored at a height, this could even be the case in an office, if these items are stored incorrectly and one falls on you it could result in a serious neck injury
  • Machinery accidents – If you are working with machinery that you have not been correctly trained to use, or you are injured by machinery that has been incorrectly operated by another member of staff, then you could be eligible for a claim. 

How could I be financially disadvantaged?
