    Minor whiplash injury


    You could be entitled to compensation for a minor whiplash injury

    Nowadays, the number of drivers on the road is more than ever. Because of this, being involved in a car accident is unfortunately not uncommon. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries that people suffer from when involved in a car accident. Whiplash can even occur if the car was travelling at a slow speed, and unfortunately the speed of the car doesn’t determine the severity of the whiplash injury.

    There have been many serious cases of whiplash where the victim has experienced damage to the soft tissue in and around their neck, back and shoulders causing terrible pain and upset. Unfortunately, serious forms of whiplash can cause even more extreme knock-on effects. Other areas that tend to be affected when a minor whiplash injury occurs can be bones, joints or ligaments. Whiplash commonly bruises the soft tissue as well as causing damaging ligament tearing which in many cases can require x-rays and specialist scans such as MRIs. These types of medical treatments can be costly and this is why you should claim for your minor whiplash injury through Accident Advice Helpline.

    The effects of a minor whiplash injury

    Many people who have experienced whiplash can struggle with getting into comfortable sitting or sleeping positions. This means they are not able to rest or sleep, which can add extra stress and frustration to an already painful injury. The effects from a minor whiplash injury aren’t always temporary; sometimes the effects can be permanent.  A minor whiplash injury can also cause shock, or financial struggle through inability to work.

    In severe cases of whiplash, people have suffered from a mixture of the following:

    • Dizziness
    • Numbness
    • Pins and needles
    • Excruciating pain
    • Difficulty sleeping
    • Scarring
    • Emotional trauma
    • Cuts and bleeding
    • Muscle pain
