    Injury claim in Rochdale

    If you are in an accident that causes a sudden jolt to your neck, the ligaments and tendons could be torn or stretched, and you could have a whiplash injury. If this accident was the fault of someone else, claiming compensation is a legal right, and the simplest way to do this is to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to make a personal injury claim in Rochdale. 

    The effects of a whiplash injury

    Whiplash usually starts to show itself after about 6-12 hours after an accident, and then for the first few days gets worse before it starts to get better. For some of the worst affected victims in those first few days they may experience other symptoms as well, such as:

    • Nausea
    • Pins and needles in the arms and hands, which can turn to aches
    • Tiredness
    • Insomnia
    • Lack of mobility
    • Blurred vision
    • Dizziness
    • Vertigo
    • Depression

    Although, these do tend to only last for a few days, and not all victims will suffer all of the symptoms, there is the pain on top of these, which is best relieved with painkillers and icepacks.

    The accidents that can cause whiplash and an injury claim in Rochdale

    Whiplash can happen in any accident, but most commonly occurs when:

    • There is a rear end shunt between two road vehicles
    • Someone falls off something such as a motorbike or cycle
    • Something heavy hits someone’s head
    • Heavy lifting without the proper training is carried out
    • Fairground rides that have restraints can cause a whiplash injury
    • If someone slip, trips or falls and lands awkwardly

    All of these ways of causing whiplash are preventable, but they are why innocent victims sustain whiplash in an accident that was not their own fault, and why they have the right to make a personal injury claim in Rochdale for compensation.
