Are you suffering from a painful stiff neck and painful back after a car accident?
If you’re suffering from a painful stiff neck and painful back after a car accident which happened recently, then you may find that you’re experiencing whiplash. Often, people who find that they are suffering a painful stiff neck and painful back after a car accident don’t seek medical help until some time after the incident.
At the time of the road traffic accident, you may just be grateful that your injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening and that you’re able to walk away from the accident. Also, the adrenaline at the time of the incident may limit the pain you feel at the time.
However, a few hours or days after the incident you may realise that you’re suffering from a painful stiff neck and painful back after a car accident. When these symptoms don’t subside, often people seek medical help and realise that the painful stiff neck and painful back after a car accident they’ve been experiencing is actually whiplash.
If you’re suffering from a painful stiff neck and painful back after a car accident and someone or something else caused the accident, you may be able to pursue them for compensation. Providing you can show that the incident wasn’t your fault, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to make a successful claim and you could obtain compensation.
As you may know, sufferers of a painful stiff neck and painful back after a car accident often find it hard to drive again for some time, which can make it difficult to get around. Similarly, you may find that you’re unable to work for some time because of the pain.
If you’re unable to work because of your injuries and you lose income, you may be able to claim this back. It’s often advisable to discuss this with your personal injury lawyers, as claimants often find that they’re able to claim more than they realised initially.
