Making a compensation claim for whiplash
If you’ve been involved in an accident which wasn’t your fault, you may be thinking about making a compensation claim for whiplash. Often, people involved in car accidents or car crashes suffer whiplash, amongst other injuries, and go on to make successful claims.
Although the term is often used to describe a variety of different injuries, whiplash generally occurs when the neck is subjected to sudden force of impact. The vigorous movement can affect the tendons and ligaments in the neck and cause significant pain.
Although whiplash can be extremely painful for the person suffering, it doesn’t necessarily have to have been a major crash or serious incident to cause whiplash. Even seemingly minor impacts can cause significant injury and result in claimants making a compensation claim for whiplash.
Many people find that whiplash doesn’t develop until 6 to 12 hours after the accident. Often headaches, stiffness and pain in the neck develop significantly later. If you suspect that you are suffering from whiplash, it’s important to seek medication attention.
If you’re involved in a car accident and suffer whiplash, you may want to make a compensation claim for whiplash and obtain financial recompense for your injuries. Although many people assume that you must have been driving in order to be eligible to make a compensation claim for whiplash, that isn’t the case. Passengers can experience whiplash and can go on to make a successful compensation claim for whiplash.
