If you live in West Byfleet, you will know that it is a lovely and traditional little village in Surrey. Even if you don’t live in West Byfleet, there is access to the village in the form of motorway, train and bus. If you have used any of these types of travel and have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault which has caused whiplash, you should be thinking about making a claim for compensation. The easiest way to make a whiplash injury claim, or any other sort of personal injury claim for that matter, is to contact Accident Advice Helpline, who will appoint you a specialised lawyer.
Lots of people who endure whiplash injuries can experience extensive damage to the soft tissue in and around their neck, back and shoulders, which can inevitably cause terrible pain and upset. It’s not uncommon for other areas to be affected when a whiplash injury occurs. This can include bones, joints or ligaments. Medically speaking, whiplash bruises the soft tissue around your neck, as well as causing damaging ligament tearing, which in many cases can require X-rays and specialist scans.
The medical assistance that you may require can be costly, so a specialist lawyer may be able to help you receive a compensation payout to cover this.
More about whiplash as an injury
Road accidents are the main cause of whiplash, but it can also occur after experiencing a sudden blow to the head. For example, injuries occur during contact sports such as boxing or rugby, a slip or fall in which the head is suddenly and violently jolted backwards, or being struck on the head by a heavy or solid object.
Unfortunately, the injuries from a whiplash injury aren’t always temporary; sometimes the effects can be permanent. A minor whiplash injury can also cause shock, as well as financial struggle.
In severe cases of whiplash, people have suffered from a mixture of the following:
- Pins and needles;
- Excruciating pain;
- Difficulty sleeping;
- Emotional trauma;
- Cuts and bleeding; and
- Muscle pain.
