Working with an injury compensation lawyer in Poynton

If you are involved in a road traffic accident, and sustain a whiplash injury you may need to make a whiplash compensation claim.  If the accident was not your fault, you should discuss the matter with an injury compensation lawyer in Poynton.

Your whiplash injury

The sudden jolting of your head out of its normal movement zone, forwards, backwards or sideways causes a whiplash motion, which then causes damage to the tendons and muscles in the neck creating a whiplash injury. You may need an injury compensation lawyer in Poynton.

How whiplash happens

The most common cause of whiplash is one vehicle going into the back of another, causing a sudden impact which jolts the occupants of the vehicles, but it is not the only cause by any means.  You could get whiplash from:

  • Playing contact sports such as boxing or ruby
  • Knocking you head in a slip, strip or fall
  • Having something heavy or solid hit your head
  • Anything that makes your head jerk suddenly

The symptoms of a whiplash injury

The symptoms vary greatly and do not always manifest themselves immediately.  Whenever the symptoms start to show you should seek medical treatment, not just to aid your compensation claim, but to help make your recovery as short as possible.

Some of the most common symptoms are:

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

Your claim

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

  • Loss of earnings
  • Medical expenses
  • Travel expenses
  • Care and assistance expenses
  • Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident that caused you whiplash
