Most neck injury compensation claims are the result of a road traffic accident, where the vehicle in which the victim has been travelling has been shunted from behind, causing rapid acceleration and deceleration of the head. The potential for long term health issues is enormous should the spinal cord get damaged in the incident, and as the symptoms of a neck injury may not manifest for a period of time after the event, it is important that when you sustain any type of neck injury, you immediately seek medical attention.
Your doctor will look for both physical symptoms and those which are non-anatomical such as post traumatic depression, sleep disturbance and any unexplained fatigue. He will identify any issues which require monitoring over the short term, and initially fit a soft cervical collar to reduce the range of motion of the neck and prevent any additional injuries. The doctor´s notes which are added to your medical records will be required to support your claim for neck injury compensation – so it is vital that all possible injuries are investigated.
Making a Neck Injury Compensation Claim
Because of the potential for significant neck damage and a consequent large award of neck injury compensation, it is always advisable to use the services of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor when making a neck injury compensation claim. A solicitor will be able to advise you on what to include in your application form to the Injuries Board Ireland to ensure that you receive a sufficient amount of neck injury compensation to atone for the trauma you have experienced and cover any ongoing out-of-pocket expenses.
A solicitor will also be the correct person to advise you if the negligent party denies liability for your injuries or claims that you contributed to them by your own negligence – this could happen in a claim for neck injury compensation if you were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. A solicitor will also be able to represent you in negotiations with the negligent party´s insurance company should they approach you with an early offer of settlement for your neck injury claim.
