    Car Accident in Essex


    If you have been in an Essex car accident, you may have suffered a number of injuries, including whiplash.

    Whiplash is a common injury to arise after a collision, particularly in rear-end shunts. Statistics reveal that rear-end collisions occurring at slow speeds account for the highest percentage of whiplash injuries, and in many cases, innocent drivers and passengers are left to suffer.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we have many years of experience handling cases involving accidents on the roads, and have successfully processed a number of whiplash claims in the past. If you have suffered this painful neck injury in an Essex car accident, depending on the circumstances, you could be entitled to claim compensation.

    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash occurs when the head is thrown about violently during an impact, such as a car accident, and the muscles and tendons in the neck are hyper-extended. This causes a number of side effects, such as swelling, tenderness, pain, headaches and dizziness, to name a few. It can take a few hours for the symptoms of whiplash to materialise, but once they have onset, it can take anything from a few weeks to a few months to recover. In rare cases, you can still feel the effects of whiplash up to a year after the crash.

    Luckily, you have up to three years from the date of the collision to make a compensation claim. This means that even if you were too unwell immediately following the accident to make a claim that you can still get what you are entitled to. For many people, a whiplash compensation payout can amount to hundreds if not thousands of pounds. Using our online claims calculator, you can see how much you could receive in as little as thirty seconds.
