Are you suffering from whiplash?
Whiplash is probably one of the best-known injuries nowadays. Whiplash occurs when the neck moves swiftly backwards, forward or sideways and then quickly snaps into place again. Depending on the severity of the accident, the consequences of a whiplash injury can be very disturbing. Whiplash can be caused even by the smallest hit and most of the time it happens when people in a car get hit by another vehicle.
The symptoms of a whiplash injury usually include headaches, neck stiffness and pain, painful or reduced neck movement and more. Although not very common, muscle spasms, blurred vision, vertigo and pain in the lower back can also be symptoms of a whiplash injury.
If you were in an accident, the blame lies with somebody else, and you suffered from whiplash as a result, you may want to contact a personal injury lawyer in Tavernspite as you could be eligible to obtain compensation.
Why claim with a personal injury lawyer in Tavernspite?
Working with a professional, such as a personal injury lawyer in Tavernspite can make the claims process far easier for claimants. Rather than struggling to collate evidence and fill in numeorus forms, you’ll be free to focus on your recovery whilst a lawyer works on your behalf.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand how traumatic an accident can be and we work tirelessly so that our claimants can obtain the compensation they deserve. If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, contact us today.
How badly were you hurt?
Whiplash can have short-term or long-term effects. If your symptoms last for more than 6 months you could have the chance to make a compensation claim for chronic whiplash. Generally, you will receive compensation based on how long your symptoms are likely to last for and their severity.
In order to be able to make a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Tavernspite, you will need to be able to prove that you obtained medical help for your injuries. Although a whiplash injury doesn’t normally require surgical intervention, if you were prescribed painkillers or were referred for physiotherapy, for example, this should enable you to make a claim.
