Compensation for Upper Body Injuries

​Upper body injuries can have a great influence on your life and we can assist you in making compensation claims when experiencing this type of injury.

How Can You Help Make A Compensation Claim For Upper Body Injuries?

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.

In addition to offering specialist solicitors with whom you can speak, our primary goal is to offer you assistance and advice if necessary.  Should you like to know if you can make a compensation claim, or if you merely want some ‘no obligations’ support, please contact us on ​0808 164 9153.  The call is free, but you can also request a call back using our online form.

How To Discover If You Have A Valid Injury Claim

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?
•    Was the accident the fault of another person?

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.

What Happens If I Have A Valid Claim?

If you are eligible to claim for compensation, and you decide to pursue the claim, then we will place you in contact with a specialist solicitor to deal with your individual case.  This removes any stress or hassle to search for the correct type of solicitor you.

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.

What Are The Different Types Of Upper Body Injury?

There are various different types of upper body injury, and below are a few examples of the upper body injuries we have assisted people to claim in previous years.

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Eye injuries
  • Arm injuries
  • Whiplash injuries

If the injury you have experienced is not listed above, do not worry.  If your accident occurred in the past three years and it was not your fault, then there is still a chance that we will be able to assist you.

We understand that injuries occur from a plethora of causes, including slips, trips, accidents in the workplace, falls in public, car accident claims or accidents where you are injured based on another person’s negligence.

For more information and advice, or to determine whether or not you have a liable claim, you can contact our company using the following number – ​0808 164 9153.

What About The Compensation?

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.

Regardless of whether you are attempting to adjust to life after a severe accident, searching for compensation for lose earnings, or are dealing with emotional stress experienced; then we can help.  Our solicitors will always attempt to assist you in receiving the maximum amount of compensation deserved to ensure that the impact of your upper body injury is covered entirely.  Read more about making a serious injury claim here.

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.

What About The ‘No Win, No Fee’ Rate?

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.


Thank you Megan for all your hard work, your very professional and patient. Very polite i don't think the outcome would have been the same without your help.

Excellent in all areas and i would say that Goldman Knightley are the best solicitors!  I am so grateful.

Involved a slipping incident in a well know superstore.  Liability was disputed however we still managed to achieve to recover £10,000.00 for her injuries which involved soft tissue injuries to her back and shoulder.



Very professional and sympathetic to my case. The case manager got the ball rolling right away and made sure I was cared for in any way they could. I was impressed with the level of communication as well as their commitment to getting me healthy again and fairly compensated

The legal Personal Injury Lawyers handled my situation in a professional and timely manner. They quickly returned phone calls. They responded to texts and emails with a seeming sense of urgency. Communication right? It was peaceful to be kept informed and up to date on the status of my case. I received a fair settlement for my damages. I would recommend them to anyone!

James Stowers


I called numerous times throughout my case to get information and I always felt like I got all the information I asked for. Though these things take a long time to resolve, it felt good to not feel forgotten throughout the process. Great place and grateful for the job they did for me.


I was in a minor collision that caused major lower back injury. Goldman Knightley handled everything very well as far as setting up appointments during the 5 months of physical therapy I went through. It was a long journey, but the few times I called with updates, they were good on returning those calls. I was happy with my choice to use them.


This firm was, without question, the most helpful after having my accident. They remained in contact with me through the entire process and made sure all my questions were answered. I'm sure I was a little annoying with how often I wanted updates but they were patient with me and I would definitely go back to them.

Madeline Boyle

I am so happy I contacted Goldman Knightley, I got rear ended and didn't know what steps to take and as soon as I contacted them it was so easy. They made sure everything was taken care of and I got back everything I deserved and some. Very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of their service.
