Call an accident solicitor if you suffer from chronic whiplash

A small percentage of people end up with chronic whiplash. Apart from neck pain and stiffness, they suffer reduced movement, headaches and tenderness of the neck muscles; some accident victims have also been known to suffer from lower back pain, numbness or pins and needles in their arms and hands. Even dizzy spells, muscle spasms and blurred vision have been known to persist, and some accident victims develop emotional and psychological problems such as depression and anxiety attacks.
An accident solicitor in Beamish via Accident Advice Helpline
The Accident Advice Helpline is a compensation provider with more than a decade of experience in helping non-fault accident victims gain access to justice and compensation. All their legal partners including an accident solicitor in Beamish, or nearest one, provide their services on a no win, no fee* basis, which means claimants won’t need to pay any money to start a claim and won’t be asked to pay legal fees during the claims procedure either.
Their legal partners deal with all the paperwork, so you won’t be asked to fill out lots of complex legal forms. You may have to go for one additional medical assessment, as you and your solicitor must prove to the defendant that a) you were injured and what those injuries were and b) that the accident was not your fault. An independent medical assessment will support your claim.
If you are unsure that you have a valid claim, you can complete a simple 30-second test on the website. You will know instantly if you qualify and roughly how much compensation you could receive, if successful. Most straightforward cases can be dealt with over the telephone and your accident solicitor in Beamish or other legal representative will try to settle out of court, as this is far cheaper and quicker. If, however, the other side refutes your claim and won’t accept liability for the accident and your injuries, then you must decide, if you wish to take legal action against the defendant and take your claim to court. A judge will then decide whether or not you should be awarded compensation.
