Are you making whiplash claims in Elgin?
Unfortunately, whiplash can be a very painful condition and is often caused by road traffic accidents or collisions of some kind. If you’re involved in an accident and you’re hit suddenly or your vehicle is jolted, you may feel some jarring in your neck or back. Although you may be aware of the pain immediately, in some cases, the full extent of the injury won’t become apparent until sometime after the incident.
If you assumed that you didn’t need medical help at the time of the accident but the pain worsens later, don’t be afraid to access help. Often, the adrenaline and shock of the incident will numb some of the pain so you may not be aware how badly you’ve been injured until hours or days after the incident itself.
When whiplash does occur, it can last for a significant length of time. Sufferers often report it going on for weeks or months and your movement can be severely restricted during this time. If, for example, you’re unable to move your neck as you normally would, you may be unable to drive or go to work. Although this is obviously a major inconvenience, you could risk further injury if you attempted to do something you weren’t capable of. If, for example, you were to attempt to drive with this kind of injury, you could be unable to perform an emergency stop or you may be unaware of what’s happening around you which could lead to another accident occurring.
Claim compensation for your injuries
If you’re concerned about the impact that this type of injury could have on your finances, we may be able to help. If you’re forced to take time off work because of an injury, you may receive full sick pay. However, if you don’t and you lose some of your income as a result of the injury, you may be able to claim this back when you make whiplash claims in Elgin.
If someone or something else caused your injuries, you could potentially claim Elgin compensation from them. In addition to this, you could also claim back any income you lost or expenses you had to pay for as a result of the injury.
