    Compensation Claim in Westbury Park

    If you have been involved in a road traffic accident or road traffic collision, there is a chance that you may experience an injury in the form of whiplash. If this is the case, then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Westbury Park.

    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash relates to the trauma to the neck caused by the head unexpectedly and unnaturally jolting in one direction, leading to damage to the neck tissues. Symptoms include:

    • Constant pain in the neck;
    • Twitches of the neck and/or shoulders (this may vary from annoying to discomfort to quite severe pain);
    • Difficulty in moving the neck in some or all directions, including general stiffness;
    • Headaches (these can be minor, or quite severe and debilitating); and
    • Lightheadedness or dizziness.

    If you suspect that you have whiplash it is advisable to seek medical attention, as a neck brace may be required to support the damaged area. There is no real treatment for whiplash, as the vast majority of cases rectify themselves in time, but you may just want to discuss the best options for aiding your recovery.

    Making a compensation claim in Westbury Park

    It is important to remember that whiplash symptoms may not present themselves immediately following an accident and can take up to 24 hours to start causing any discomfort.

    If you have been involved in a car accident that was not your fault and suspect that you might have whiplash, you should contact your GP. Not only will this ensure that you have the best medical advice you can get, but it will also be noted on your medical records, which will form part of the documentary evidence for substantiating your compensation claim in Westbury Park.
