Thinking of making a compensation claim and wondering ‘how much is paid for whiplash from a fall?’
Whiplash is caused by trauma to the head and neck. The trauma may result from a road traffic accident, a fall or even an assault. The impact of the trauma forces your neck to move in ways that result in strained muscles, ligaments and nerves. Symptoms of whiplash include complaints such as neck pain and neck stiffness, spine and shoulder pain and headaches
If you have had a fall that wasn’t your fault and you are now suffering from the symptoms of whiplash, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. The question is ‘how much is paid for whiplash from a fall?’
So how much for whiplash?
First things first. If you haven’t already, you should attend a medical assessment to ascertain the extent of your injuries and to receive the medical attention you need. Appropriate treatment will help you deal with the pain and stiffness. However it cannot compensate for lost earnings or for the interference in your life caused by the injury. The amount of compensation to which you may be entitled depends on many different factors including the severity of your symptoms, how long you have been affected and the severity of impact on your daily life.
