Upper body injuries refer to types of injuries that affect the area from the top of your head to your waist, including the arms and shoulders. This particular type of bodily injury can have serious repercussions on a person’s career, financial situation and social life, not to mention the pain and feelings of isolation by being dependent on other individuals.
An upper body injury can stop you from being able to drive and can be costly to manage because you will need to take time off from work to recover. This can increase feelings of stress which you should not need to deal with during treatment.
At the YEC, we have over twenty years experience in assisting people to make compensation claims after experiencing different injuries and accidents. We have helped approximately two million people in these situations discover if they have valid claims making us the most trust personal injury specialists in the United Kingdom.

The call is free, but you can also request a call back using our online form.
In the majority of cases, if you are able to respond ‘yes’ to the questions below then there is a strong chance that we can assist you in making a valid compensation claim.
• Were you injured as a result of a workplace accident?
• Did the accident occur in the past three years?

We understand that you may be uncertain as to whether or not the accident was your fault as it can be challenging to tell who is responsible for an injury. The best method to discover who is liable is to contact our legally trained advisors using the free helpline – 0808 164 9153.
All of our advisors undergo an intensive training programme; therefore, they are able to provide the best advice possible and can let you know whether or not they think you have a valid claim.

Our specialist solicitors are able to respond to any queries you may have and will be the point of contact throughout your claims procedure. They will work hard to negotiate with the other parties and represent you suitably so that you receive the full compensation owed for an upper body injury.

Our company treats each case as unique and views it on an individual basis; thereby, ensuring that you receive the maximum amount of compensation owed. The specialist solicitor assigned to your case will take any expenses experienced as a result of the upper body injury, as well as the influence it had on your family and lifestyle into account. For example, the compensation received could help cover the costs of the following:
• Lost earnings based on the time off work currently and in the future
• The future impact on different employment opportunities
• The influence of the injury on social and leisure activities
• Any medical treatment, physiotherapy, modifications to your home and equipment required for recovery
• Travel and care costs, even if this was provided for free by family members or friends
• The loss of a social life and spare time activities; for example, if you are not able to partake in sports or hobbies
We understand that certain upper body injuries can be particularly severe and can have life-changing consequences for your family and you. If you or a loved one has experienced a severe upper bodily injury, we know it can be challenging to deal with emotional effects as well leaving you feeling alone and isolated.

Based on the fact that compensation is calculated for individual situations, it is not possible for us to tell you the amount you will receive immediately. However, you can utilise our industry-leading compensation calculator to gain an estimation of the amount you could be owed. The calculator will ask certain questions regarding your workplace accident and injury, and then it will provide a guideline amount based on prior cases similar to yours.
When you make a claim with us you are working with a risk-free company. This is because all of our specialist solicitors will assist you in making a compensation claim using a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. In its simplistic form, the ‘no win, no fee’ concept means that if your case is unsuccessful then you will not be charged for our services. When you do win a compensation claim, then you will be charged for our services.
