Neck and shoulder injury claims
The neck and shoulders are some of the most flexible parts of the body, and we understand how painful it can be if either of them are injured. The neck is essential to movement and balance, and if you become injured the lasting effects can have dramatic and serious implications.
The neck is the link between the brain and the rest of the body, and even the slightest knock can damage the nerves that travel down your back. Not only can this lead to loss of feeling and numbness, but in more serious cases it can also cause partial or complete paralysis.
One of the main causes of sickness absence in the UK is neck injuries, and this damage is usually caused by whiplash and other road accidents. Soft tissue damage within the neck is one of the most common types of personal injury claim, however there are many more ways the neck can affect the rest of the body.
Catastrophic fractures that impact the spinal column are very serious injuries, and could confine a person to a wheelchair. Minor strains can also take their toll on the body, and as well as reducing movement they can also cause long term fatigue if left untreated.
