Have you been in an accident where you have endured whiplash? Our personal injury lawyer in Sowerby Bridge can help you
UK roads are incredibly busy and with more and more people passing their driving tests and taking to the roads, more and more accidents are taking place now more than ever. While there are a range of horrible injuries that can come from a car accident, whiplash is certainly one of the most common.
In some cases, whiplash isn’t taken seriously, but it can in fact be a very serious injury. Serious whiplash can cause damage to the soft tissue in and around the neck, back and shoulder areas. This, undoubtedly, causes terrible pain and upset to the victim of the injury. Bones and joints can also be damaged through a whiplash injury – in particular, ligament damage can occur. In very serious cases of whiplash, it isn’t uncommon to suffer from dizziness, numbness, pins and needles, excruciating neck pain, difficulty sleeping, scarring, cuts, bleeding and extreme muscle pain. It really can be a horrible experience and you need the help and support of those around you and Accident Advice Helpline if you choose to make a claim for compensation.
Have you experienced whiplash in a car accident that was not your fault?
If, because of the negligence of someone else on the road, you have been involved in an accident where you have been injured and endured whiplash, you can start a claim for a settlement pay out through our personal injury lawyer in Sowerby Bridge.

The compensation amounts paid out for whiplash vary greatly depending on personal and individual circumstances.
