If you have suffered a neck injury, it can have a profound impact on your life.

Common questions about Neck Injury Compensation Claims
If you have suffered a neck injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, lawyers need to prove that:
- The person who caused the injury owed a ‘duty of care’ for your safety;
- The duty of care was breached (for example, they ran a red light if the injury was caused by a road accident); and
- You have been injured as a result of the accident.
The person or company who was responsible won’t pay out of their own pocket so they won’t have to find lawyers to help them. Everything is done through their insurance company.
Some examples of the things you might be able to claim include:
- Medical, rehabilitation and hospital expenses
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Home help and nursing provided by anyone, paid or unpaid, if it meets certain conditions.
No two neck injury compensation claims are the same and what you can claim for really depends on your situation. A lawyer will be able to advise exactly what you can claim for once they know more about your situation.
Once a lawyer knows the facts of your case they will be able to give you a good idea as to how long your case may take.
There are strict time limits when applying to lodging a neck injury claim. Please contact Shine Lawyers for further information regarding your entitlements and your eligibility to claim.
The legal costs themselves really depend on the work required to make your claim successful and this can vary depending on the complexity of your case.
Most people making neck injury compensation legal claims choose not to act for themselves and instead engage an expert compensation lawyer. The best compensation lawyers can provide the knowledge and experience required to help guide a case to a successful outcome.
