    Redbridge whiplash claims

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Redbridge

    Are you suffering from whiplash?

    Normally caused by an impact of some kind, whiplash can be a painful and frustrating injury to sustain. Although it’s rarely serious, the symptoms of whiplash can last for a fairly long time and, as a result, you may be in a state of discomfort for weeks after the incident.

    Furthermore, the pain of whiplash can affect your range of mobility. Normally affecting the neck, whiplash can prevent you from turning your head from side to side with ease. As a result, some people find that they’re unable to work or drive whilst they’re suffering from whiplash and this can have a significant effect on their lives.

    As whiplash is normally a result of an impact, it often occurs due to road traffic accident. When one vehicle hits another, the impact causes the head and neck to jolt, thus causing whiplash. As with other injuries, sufferers can be eligible to make compensation claims in certain situations.

    Making Redbridge whiplash claims

    In order to be eligible to claim injury compensation, you’ll need to show that someone else was responsible for the accident which caused your injuries. As many Redbridge whiplash claims arise from traffic accidents, it may be fairly easy for you to access the evidence you need to support your claim.

    The increasing use of dash cams, for example, means that there may be footage of the accident occurring. When viewed following the accident, this may make it easy to determine who was at fault and who is liable for your injuries.

    If you don’t currently use a dash cam, a witness might have recorded the incident on their own camera. In addition to asking for witness’s contact details so that they can provide a statement, it can be useful to note whether they have any footage which could be used to support your claim.

    Once you’ve shown that someone else was responsible for the incident, you’ll also need to prove that you received medical treatment in order to make Redbridge whiplash claims. By using your medical records, it’s simply to prove that you were treated so this shouldn’t be a barrier to obtaining compensation.
