If you didn’t get a severe injury, make sure to take pictures of the place of the accident and contact the witnesses at the same spot. But if your injury is severe, complete your medical treatment and then start collecting the evidence. Meanwhile, ask some to take pictures of the place of the accident for you when you’re going to a hospital.
Keep track of all the documents, your hospital bills and receipts, travel costs in going to a hospital and the proof of loss of earnings etc. Also, request a copy of the CCTV footage, if available.
But the best thing you can do is contact us. We will take care of all the formalities on your behalf and make a successful claim maximising the compensation and minimising the amount of time.
Before making a neck injury claim compensation, you should know what type of expenses you can cover in it. Many people fail to make the most out of their claim because they don’t know what can be claimed in neck injury compensation amounts. Let’s know what costs you can reimburse by claiming compensation for a neck injury at work.
Some victims of a workplace accident also use a neck injury compensation calculator and then estimate these expenses and their settlement amount. However, discussing your case with injury claim specialists is a better idea because you may not know what you can cover in your claim.
Neck has many soft tissues in it. Some workplace accidents give a severe jolt to a person’s head. It can move the head back and forth quickly that stretches the soft tissues beyond their normal range. It can cause a soft tissue neck injury. The most common type of injury is a whiplash injury.
If you had a soft tissue or whiplash injury at work due to the fault of someone else you can claim soft tissue neck injury compensation.
Let’s have a look at how much compensation you get for soft tissue injury at work in the UK.

|Serious Whiplash at work with full recovery within 2 years||£3,470 to £6,290|
|Moderate Whiplash at work with full recovery within 1 year||£1,950 to £3,470|
|Minor whiplash injury recovering within 3 months||£300 to £1,950|
Using a neck injury compensation calculator can also give you some estimates but you may not know what type of expenses you can cover in it. So this lack of experience may lead to an incorrect estimation (either over or underestimation) of your neck injury compensation payout. That’s why discuss your case with injury claim specialists.
