    How do you get whiplash in Ealing

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Ealing

    How do you get whiplash in Ealing is answered simply. You get it in an accident when your head is jolted in opposite directions so that the muscles and ligaments in your neck are bruised or torn.

    When we hear the word ‘whiplash’ we tend to think about road traffic accidents, but whiplash can be the result of other types of accident.

    How do you get whiplash in Ealing?

    Just how do you get whiplash in Ealing? Well, apart from getting it in road traffic accidents, you can get it if you have a blow to the head, or from a sudden impact. Boxers and rugby players can get whiplash, for example.

    Whiplash may be a minor injury, and it mostly is, or it can be chronic or acute. If you have a more serious form of whiplash, you may never fully recover from it. This type of injury can cause anxiety and depression, leaving you unable to do everyday tasks. Luckily this is fairly rare.

    A minor case of whiplash can clear up in about six weeks, although sometimes the symptoms of whiplash can still be felt up to two years after the accident in which it was sustained.

    How much compensation could I receive?

    The amount of compensation you may be awarded for a whiplash injury depends on how serious it is. For example, if it is a minor whiplash injury, you might get up to £1,705. This amount can be awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused to you, and comes into the category of general damages.

    You can also receive special damages which are intended to reimburse you for any out-of-pocket expenses you may have had solely because of your injuries. These would, for example, cover prescription charges, taxis to hospital and so on.

    There is no way we can predict the exact amount of compensation you could be awarded, because each accident is different, as are people’s personal circumstances.
