Whiplash accidents in Lowestoft
Whiplash can be a nasty injury that is often severely underestimated. Many people are loath to claim for whiplash injuries as they think it’s a waste of time. You might approach a personal injury solicitor in Lowestoft who feels that way, but here at Accident Advice Helpline we say that if you’ve been involved in an accident that was not your fault and you’ve suffered whiplash and have the medical evidence to prove it, why shouldn’t you make a claim?
Whiplash occurs when the head is a whipped one way and then another – this can be side to side, forward and back or back to front. The whipping action stretches the muscles and tendons, so you get a sprained neck effectively. In severe cases, medical intervention is necessary.
While you can suffer whiplash after trips and falls, or in sporting accidents, the most common occurrences we see are after road traffic accidents, particularly shunts in slow moving traffic caused by congestion. Congestion can be caused by commuter traffic, event traffic or roadworks. It is ironic that investigations needed to improve congestion into Lowestoft can themselves cause long-running congestion of course, for example the work undertaken at the Lake Lothing crossing. Ground investigation work is underway here, and it is hoped the new bridge will provide relief for traffic going through the town, but 2022 is a long way off!
If you’ve suffered with a whiplash injury, either while you were held up in traffic and someone went into the back of you, or due to other problems, then talk to the sympathetic advisers here at Accident Advice Helpline. Remember we offer no-win, no-fee* as standard to all of our clients, so you won’t have to risk your savings making a claim. Call and ask about no-win, no-fee* today.
