Find out if you may be entitled to compensation for whiplash
Whiplash is when the neck has been sprained, strained or injured. It is caused by the head being suddenly jolted forwards and then backwards. This can be the result of a car accident, incidentally it doesn’t have to be a serious car accident to cause whiplash. It can also be caused by blows to the head, sports like boxing or rugby and a bad fall. Whiplash can leave you with headache, neck pain and stiffness, pain in the shoulder or between the shoulder blades, pain or numbness in the hand or arm, lower back pain, ringing in the ears or blurred vision, dizziness, irritability, sleep disturbances, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and difficulty remembering things.
If you have been in an accident within the past 3 years which was not your fault and you have been diagnosed with whiplash, you should think about finding out more about compensation for whiplash. The first step you should take after you have received medical advice is to telephone Accident Advice Helpline which is a compensation provider for personal injury compensation.
An online calculator
A trained advisor will guide you through a 30 second test which will establish whether you are likely to get compensation for whiplash. After that, an online calculator will estimate how much compensation you might get if an accident solicitor represents you and wins. This would be on a no win no fee basis. All legal partners of Accident Advice Helpline operate on these terms.
If you have been feeling dizzy and having trouble concentrating then you may think that the last thing which you want to do is to pick up the telephone and start a compensation claim. Accident Advice Helpline was established in 2000 and has since helped thousands of people like you to get compensation for their personal injuries. The trained advisors are aware that you could be feeling ill and in pain and you can rest assured that you will be treated with respect and sympathy.
Furthermore, picking the telephone up to find out more does not mean that you are placing yourself under any obligation. You decide if you wish to go ahead with the claim. In fact, most claims can be processed by telephone and most claimants do not need to attend court. You may have to attend an additional medical assessment though.
If you do decide that you wish to find out if you might be entitled to compensation for whiplash, you should ring Accident Advice Helpline without delay. It is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The number is 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
