    Whiplash and an injury lawyer in Mortimer

    Mortimer is a village in the civil parish of Stratfield Mortimer in Berkshire. Historian David Nash Ford believes the name Mortimer stems from the Lords of the Manor, the Mortimer family, a powerful magnate family and the Earls of March from Wigmore, Herefordshire. It doesn’t matter how powerful your family is though, that does not make you immune to sustaining a whiplash injury and maybe wanting to use an injury lawyer in Mortimer. If you live in the area, you will know that there is no point in looking for an injury lawyer in Mortimer. If you need one, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Road traffic accidents are not the only cause of whiplash

    Although the most common way to sustain a whiplash injury is a rear-end shunt in a car, it is by no means the only way. You could also get it by:

    • Playing contact sports such as boxing or rugby;
    • Knocking your head in a slip, strip or fall; and
    • Having something heavy or solid hit your head.

    If this, or any other type of injury incurred in an accident that was not your fault, has happened to you, you may consider using the services of us at Accident Advice Helpline, so that we can advice you over the phone. You don’t need an injury lawyer in Mortimer.

    Whiplash symptoms

    Whiplash symptoms vary greatly and do not always show themselves until a few days after the accident. Resting your neck is very important as soon as the symptoms start to show. You should seek medical treatment, to help you recover as soon as possible.

    The symptoms to look out for are:

    • Back pain and stiffness;
    • Pains or pins and needles in arms and legs;
    • Dizziness and blurred vision;
    • Ringing in your ears;
    • Jaw pain;
    • Headaches; and
    • Nausea.

    Out-of-pocket expenses

    The main part of your personal injury claim will depend on the severity of your whiplash. Mild whiplash will heal in just a few weeks, whereas chronic whiplash can be permanent and life changing. Apart from your injuries, you can claim for any others costs or losses that are a result of the accident, such as:

    • Loss of earnings;
    • Medical expenses;
    • Travel expenses; and
    • Care and assistance expenses.
