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

Common questions about Neck Injury Compensation Claims

The image below illustrates the personal injury claims process and how you can access compensation for your neck injury.

Claims Process Diagram
Depending on the nature of your neck injury claim, a monetary value is usually placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the injury, and your actual life path since the injury.

Compensation Diagram
Neck injury claims can be complex cases and as a result it can be hard to establish if you have a claim without knowing the facts of your particular situation. A personal injury law expert can advise you on your rights and the legal options available to you following a neck injury.

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.
If you do decide to take legal action and are wondering who will pay your compensation, in most cases, the insurance company of the person or entity who is responsible for the injury will pay the compensation.

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.
Depending on your situation, it is possible that your neck injury claim will cover some if not all of your physical and psychological injuries and losses, including past and future costs.

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.
Neck injury claims can be quite complex and how long it can take to resolve successfully really depends on the facts of your situation, like how long it takes your injuries to stabilise.

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.
If you have suffered a neck injury at work, on the roads, or out in public, its important to realise time limits apply in all circumstances in regards to when you have to submit your claim.

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.
Shine Lawyers provide all our personal injury legal services on a No Win No Fee guarantee, which means you won’t have to pay our legal fees unless we win your claim at the end.

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.
It is possible to legally represent yourself when making a compensation claim. Doing so successfully will likely require a thorough understanding of the law, your legal rights and entitlements, and a commitment to actively pursue the case to move it forward.

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.
Shine Lawyers has offices in the following locations across Australia. As part of our service offering, home or hospital appointments can be arranged at your convenience.
