If you fall over and knock your head on a wall, you may distort your neck, damage the muscles, tendon and ligaments in your neck and this means you have a whiplash injury. If something falls from height whilst you are at work in the warehouse, it lands on your shoulders and knocks your head suddenly forward, you may have a whiplash injury. If you’re driving or the passenger in a car that gets shunted from behind causing a sudden jolting of your head throwing it outside its normal movement zone, you may have a whiplash injury. Just three examples of how easy it is to get a whiplash injury.
If any of the scenarios happen to you, or any other accident and the fault of the accident was someone else’s, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using injury lawyers in Tregaron.
Injury lawyers in Tregaron say lets talk about whiplash
Whiplash is a very painful and disabling condition. In its mildest form it will take a few weeks to heal but in its most chronic form it will takes a very long time to heal, if it ever does. Some sufferers never fully recover and are left with weaknesses in the back and neck. Some of the symptoms you may experience with whiplash are:
- Neck Pain
- Stiffness in the neck area
- Pins and needles or numbness in the arms and legs
- Blurred Vision
If you suffer any of the symptoms as the result of an accident, you should seek medical attention to make sure there are no other injuries, such as any broken bones. If the accident that caused the symptoms was not your fault, you should talk to injury lawyers in Tregaron about making a personal injury compensation claim.
The material things you can claim for
Apart from the pain, suffering and anxiety you will have suffered in the accident there are material things that should be claimed for as well, costs and losses that have happened because of your situation, such as:
- Loss of earnings
- Travel costs
- Medical expenses
- Care costs
- Cost of doing jobs around the house that you can no longer do
Every aspect of the effects of the accident needs to be looked at to ensure you are not out of pocket because someone else caused you to be injured.
