You may be entitled to compensation for minor whiplash
Due to the amount of people on roads these days, being involved in a car accident is not uncommon. As more and more drivers take to the roads, road traffic accidents are on the up. One of the most common injuries that people suffer from when involved in a car accidents is whiplash. It doesn’t matter how fast the car was going, minor whiplash can still occur in any type of car accident.
Whiplash can be a very serious and damaging injury. There have been many serious cases of whiplash where the victim has experienced damage to the soft tissue in and around their neck, back and shoulders, causing terrible pain and upset. Other areas that can be affected when minor whiplash occurs can be the bones or joints. Whiplash can bruise the soft tissue as well as cause damage by ligament tearing which in many cases can require x-rays and specialist scans such as MRI’s. This can become costly, which is one of the many good reasons to claim compensation for your minor whiplash accident.
In severe cases of whiplash, people have suffered from a mixture of the following:
- Pins and needles
- Excruciating pain
- Difficulty sleeping
- Cuts and bleeding
- Muscle pain.
After experiencing whiplash, many people find getting into a comfortable sitting and sleeping position difficult, meaning they are not able to rest or sleep. This isn’t always temporary, sometimes effects can be permanent. As well as causing irritability, many people who suffer from accidents experience an emotional level of trauma due to various factors. The accident could have caused shock or the person could be struggling financially. If the accident that you were involved in that caused you whiplash wasn’t your fault and took place within the past three years, you should get in touch.
