    No win no fee whiplash

    Whiplash is a common injury when someone has been in a car accident. If you have whiplash and you are thinking of making a claim for whiplash, chances are that you are unsure where to get started.  Below you are going to find an overview of whiplash claims.

    Introduction to no win no fee* whiplash claims

    Whiplash is an injury to the soft tissues of the neck and it normally happens after a person’s head is jolted forwards or backwards, and this causes a sudden neck muscle extension.

    The movement is often really violent, based on the accident’s cause.  Because of this, these injuries can greatly vary in how bad they are. They may involve a pain that is slight, or even a disability which requires surgery.  This also may be worsened if the person’s head is turned to one side when it happened.

    Pain in the neck, due to a whiplash injury, could be felt immediately after the accident, or it might become noticeable several days following the accident. It also can be temporary or permanent. In fact, 10% of the people who have whiplash have long-term disability because of it.

    No win no fee* whiplash compensation

    The most common claims in whiplash compensation are those that are made for injuries to the neck due to road accidents. Even though your body is restrained by your seat belt, that can’t be said for your head. The effect is very sudden and very unexpected on your neck, and happens when your vehicle collides with another vehicle.
