People usually associate whiplash with car crashes, and it is sometimes why they seek injury claim specialists in Abercarn to help them claim compensation. As long as someone else caused your injury, Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
Whiplash is actually a sprain in your neck usually caused by a sudden jolt to your head. It can easily happen in many different ways, car crashes being just one of them. It happens when your head is suddenly thrown forwards and backwards, or from side to side.
The muscles and tendons are then stretched too far and this causes the pain. Pain can be felt across the shoulders and neck, and you may not notice any symptoms for a few hours.
You will probably be given painkillers to help with the pain, and the whiplash should clear up after a few weeks.
Claiming compensation for whiplash
Whiplash is not usually life threatening, but it can take a few weeks to heal, and you may be unable to work during this time. Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with a compensation claim, to help you reclaim out-of-pocket expenses associated with the accident, as well as something for your pain and suffering.
