Have you been injured or suffered whiplash?
As you may know, whiplash is a relatively common injury which often gives rise to a compensation claim. If you’ve suffered from whiplash, it’s likely that you’ll be familiar with the ongoing pain and suffering it can cause. One of the inconveniences that whiplash sufferers face is the limited mobility it allows them. Often carrying out everyday tasks, such as cooking, driving or even showering, can take twice as long to complete.
Due to the type of injury that whiplash is, treatment can vary but is not always effective. Whilst some sufferers rely on pain medication, others use a combination of medication and physiotherapy to try and regain some movement and reduce the pain. However, often sufferers are simply forced to wait weeks or months for the injury to subside.
Although whiplash is often associated with road traffic accidents and car crashes, it can actually be caused in a variety of ways. Any incident which involves an impact or sudden jolt can cause whiplash, so travel-related incidents can commonly result in people suffering from the condition. If, for example, you’re hurt in a boat or ferry incident or a sudden emergency stop on a train, you could suffer from whiplash.
