    Car crash whiplash in Sheffield


    You may not realise you have suffered car crash whiplash in Sheffield until a couple of days after the event. Typically it can take a couple of days for the pain to manifest itself. But if you are involved in any road traffic accident, there are a few things you should do if you have a chance that will help you in the long run if you need to make a claim for compensation for your injuries:

    • Take the details of the party who was responsible for causing the accident. You will need the vehicle registration number and their contact details (name, address, phone number etc). If the person leaves the scene, you have any reason to believe that the vehicle is stolen or they do not have insurance, you should contact the police if they haven’t already attended the scene.
    • Take the names, addresses and contact numbers of any witnesses to the accident.
    • If at all possible, and it is safe to do so, take some photos of the accident site.

    You should also, of course, seek medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained, if the accident has resulted in car crash whiplash in Sheffield. Keep hold of any receipts relating to your treatment; for prescriptions and transport to and from your appointments. If you have to pay for additional childcare or help around the home while you are recovering, make sure you obtain receipts for this too – you may be entitled to claim this back as part of your compensation award.
