Whiplash Cefn no win no fee* compensation claims
Many of us are aware that if we have been involved in an accident that it is possible to make a Cefn no win no fee* compensation claim. This is to compensate for any personal injuries that we have sustained. With all the reports that have been in the news recently regarding whiplash, people are now becoming concerned that if they suffer from an injury of whiplash, they will not be able to make a Cefn no win no fee* compensation claim. This is not the case.
What is whiplash?
The problem with making a whiplash compensation claim is that it is the sort of injury that cannot necessarily be proven. That is why there can sometimes be a degree of uncertainty about the validity of the claims that have been made for this particular injury. However, whiplash can be caused in a variety of settings. What’s more, the effect it can have on sufferers can be significant. As a result, it would be impossible not to offer victims of such injuries the ability to make a compensation claim.
Whiplash is an injury caused to the neck – predominantly the soft tissues, tendons and muscles in the neck area. It is caused as a result of the body sustaining a sudden jolt. It is often caused by road traffic incidents where vehicles have collided at speed. However, it can also occur as a result of a fall, or even on amusement park rides. No matter where or how you sustained your whiplash injury, you could be entitled to seek compensation via a no-win, no-fee* claim if the accident was not your fault.
The symptoms of whiplash can vary depending on the individual, and the type of accident which caused the injury in the first place. Generally speaking, sufferers will experience a stiffness in the neck and surrounding area. This may make it difficult to move. Headaches can also be a common side effect. In more serious cases, the sufferer may also experience back pain, tingling in the hands and arms and dizziness.
Generally, whiplash is the sort of condition which heals itself over time. Other than exercising caution and not overdoing things, there is little that can be done to treat the problem directly. However, again in more serious accident compensation claims, it may be that you experience ongoing complications as a result of your initial injury – back problems being the most common.
