If you have sustained a case of chronic whiplash, then you may want to know if there is a cure for this condition. Although it can be a very painful and disabling, whiplash is self limiting and usually heal on its own given time. But sometimes the damage that has been caused is so severe that this does not happen, and although it can improve, victims can be left with permanent weaknesses in the back and neck.
Even worse is for the victims that develop a chronic pain syndrome because of the whiplash injury. In this situation, the whiplash injury heals but the victim is left with pain all over their body, the severity of which can vary from day to day. This cannot be cured, and the best that can be done to help is some form of pain management.
If you have sustained your whiplash injury through no fault of your own, whether it is mild or chronic, you might want to make a personal injury claim by using an injury lawyer in Thrapston to help you.
The cause of whiplash and using an injury lawyer in Thrapston
Whiplash is caused when your head is jolted suddenly out of its normal comfort zone, either forwards, backwards or sideways. This damages your the soft tissues in your neck, creating the pain of a whiplash injury.
If through no fault of your own, you have suffered this very painful injury, you may want to make an injury claim by using an injury lawyer in Thrapston from Accident Advice Helpline.
The amount you could be awarded
This is a question that cannot be answered at an early stage of the claim as there are too many things to be accounted for, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- The impact of the injuries on your life
- Loss of earnings
- Travel costs if your vehicle is off the road
- Medical expenses
- Replacement of equipment and accessories
- Childcare costs
