    Why people claim for whiplash injuries

    Contacting a law firm such as the Accident Advice Helpline, who specialise in personal injury compensation, might seem like a ‘big deal’ but it’s really not daunting at all. We are a law firm, who specialise in personal injury compensation for claimants who have been injured through no fault of their own and as long as you can say in good conscience that the accident wasn’t your fault, we are confident we can process your claim and there is a VERY strong chance you’ll never even see the inside of a courtroom! One of the most common injuries we arrange compensation for is whiplash, a very misunderstood affliction that is the frequent result of a road accident.

    Whiplash is no laughing matter

    Though the effects of whiplash are not immediately visible, the underlying long-term effects can be absolutely devastating, so if you’ve been in a recent road accident, make an appointment with your local GP and get yourself checked out. Long-term complications can range from prolonged pain to anxiety and depression and the effects of whiplash can often take quite a while to manifest. Of course, if such complications occur, Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you gain an amount of personal injury compensation that is directly proportionate to the extent of your injuries. In many cases of course, the body heals itself and the whiplash soothes to little more than a dull ache before disappearing entirely. If you feel like your whiplash is seriously affecting your day-to-day working and personal life however, it might be time to give the Accident Advice Helpline a call.

    What is whiplash, and how do I make a claim?

    Whiplash is technically defined as any injury that is caused by a sudden head movement. A violent and unintended movement of the head can lead to tendon and ligament damage in the neck with common symptoms which include neck stiffness and pain, tenderness, reduced and/or painful neck movement and mild to severe headaches. Whiplash can often be diagnosed from just the symptoms alone. Your GP might want to examine your neck to check for any muscle spasms or tenderness but generally, no further examination will be required.
