- Workplace accidents, which would allow you to lodge a claim for workers compensation benefits
- Motor vehicle accidents, where the soft tissues around the fragile neck area can be so easily injured through whiplash and other jolts

We’ve developed an industry leading neck injury settlement calculator to help you on your way to starting a compensation claim. We understand that sustaining a neck injury isn’t just painful. At times it can be an excruciating injury. It can limit you from getting around, dealing with everyday routine tasks such as driving, walking and working can become near impossible. The neck injury claim calculator is simple, quick and easy to use.
Most or our clients who are seeking a neck injury compensation payout have a common question: “When it comes to a personal injury claim, how much for neck injury compensation can I expect?” If you’ve been injured or are dealing with a workers compensation insurer, this is a valid question. You may even have long-term medical care costs, loss of wages and generally, damages that you want to be compensated for considering the ongoing pain and suffering that you are going through.
The answer of how much a neck injury claim is valued depends on the severity of the injury and the length of time required to recover will hugely vary. A minor neck trauma may only cause you some pain and discomfort for a few weeks as it completely heals. This is reflected in the neck injury compensation payout dollar value. While clearly more serious damage to the neck can cause long-term damages, and in some cases, permanent disability. This is why a broken neck compensation settlement will always tend to be much higher.

The most common causes of neck injuries
There are many activities and accidents that can lead to neck trauma. Some accidents will be due to your negligence or misfortune, others will be caused in part to someone else’s actions. In this case, you may be entitled to pursue a compensation claim. The most common causes of neck injuries include the following:
Road Traffic Accidents
A significant source of neck injury claims come from road traffic accidents and motor vehicle accidents, with the most common type of injury being whiplash. Even a low-speed collision can cause a person’s head to jerk back and forth in a sudden jerking motion. The result causes the hyperextension of the muscles and ligaments in the neck; in more serious accidents, this can result in fractured or broken bones.
Criminal Injuries and Attacks
Neck injuries can result from attack resulting from a sudden and unexpected blow to the head. These incidents can cause particularly severe types of head and neck injuries resulting from punches, weapons, as well as any fall where you hit your head on the ground.
Lastly, neck injuries are surprisingly common in the workplace and can come from any activity from slipping on a wet floor, tripping on wires to falling objects. Our specialist team are experienced in dealing with workers comp settlements for neck injuries.
A workers compensation neck injury settlement will assist you, particularly if you have suffered from a loss of income caused by the extra level of stress over and above the injury. The injury may also leave you experiencing a negative impact on your everyday life that you should be compensated for.
Other than a sudden traumatic event, neck injuries result from repetitive work tasks, where adequate training wasn’t provided, or simply the adoption of unsafe work practices. In any scenario, consider pursuing a neck injury at work compensation claim with the help of our specialist team.
