Whiplash injury can be caused by trauma to your neck or head. The injury may result from trauma such as a road traffic accident in which your car is struck from behind. However a simple fall can also lead to whiplash injury.
Whiplash is caused by uncontrolled movement of your neck which causes the muscles, ligaments and nerves to become strained. This neck strain damage causes pain, stiffness and sometimes pins and needles. The pain and stiffness may be experienced in your neck, shoulders and spine. Some people complain of headaches.
If you have had an accident that caused whiplash injury and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
How much is whiplash compensation
A medical professional should examine you to determine the severity of your injuries and to draw up a treatment plan and pain relief regimen which should help you manage your pain and stiffness. However, medical treatment cannot compensate for lost earnings or for the interference in your life caused by your whiplash injury.
The amount of compensation to which you may be entitled depends on many different factors including the severity of your symptoms, how long you have been affected and the severity of impact on your daily life. Consideration is made for any pain and suffering you have endured because of your injury. In addition, if you have had to take time off work, compensation for loss of earnings needs to be factored in.
