    Recognise the signs of whiplash injury


    Whiplash is common after car accidents, and can cause a lot of problems – potentially costly ones. But there is a way to claw back some of the expense with Accident Advice Helpline.

    Being in a car crash can mean not only damage to your car, but also damage to your body. You might suffer hardly any injury, if you’re lucky; if not, you could end up in hospital for a long time. Car accidents also cause death.

    A frequent complaint, following a car crash, is whiplash. This can affect your ability to carry out everyday tasks at home, and go to work. It may also mean that you have to have medical treatment. All of this may involve extra costs – a home help, for example, may be needed to carry out chores that you are unable to do.

    What are the signs of whiplash injury?

    There is a range of signs associated with the condition. These may include:

    • A painful and stiff neck
    • Headache, dizziness and ringing ears
    • Pain in the shoulders, arms and jaw

    Some psychological symptoms may also be experienced, such as anxiety and depression, and disturbance of sleep. These, as well as the physical signs of whiplash injury, make life difficult after a car accident – so if the accident has been caused by someone else’s actions or negligence, why not claim compensation? It could help to improve your life.

    How you can put in a claim for compensation

    Fortunately, the process of making a claim will cause very little stress. Yes, you may need to go for another medical assessment – but only to process the claim properly. And yes, you will also need to collect receipts and keep records of your medical treatment, for the same reason.

    But everything else can be dealt with by a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ solicitor from one of the largest law firms in the UK – a firm whose reputation is so good that it has been endorsed by Esther Rantzen, champion of consumer causes. That firm is Accident Advice Helpline.
