    Road accident in Redcar & Cleveland


    Everywhere in the UK has some kind of traffic problems, it does not matter where you live. The simple fact is there are too many cars on the roads today, so consequently more road accidents in Redcar & Cleveland happen, and more innocent victims are injured because of them.

    If you have been one of the unfortunate ones that has been in a road accident in Redcar & Cleveland, and the accident was not your fault, if the injuries were severe enough to need medical attention and the accident happened no more than three years ago, you may qualify to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Making a whiplash claim because of a road accident in Redcar & Cleveland

    Whiplash occurs when there is a sudden jolting of the head backwards, forwards or sideways. The ligaments and tendons in the neck become damaged in such a way that anywhere else in the body we would call it a sprain.

    This is a sprain with a difference though because the consequences can be severe and disabling.  If your whiplash injury is the result of the actions of someone else, you should be speaking to an injury solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline about claiming compensation.

    The symptoms of whiplash

    Depending on the severity of the whiplash and how bad the injury is, the symptoms can vary greatly, and they quite often do not appear till the day after the accident.  You can suffer from nausea, dizziness and several others symptoms that you would not usually associate with a neck injury.

    Open Claim Calculator

    The majority of mild cases of whiplash will clear up of their own accord over a few weeks.  In spite of the pain, you should try to exercise your neck gently each day, as this will help to keep it mobile and help with the recovery.

    The more serious forms of whiplash may require physiotherapy and stronger painkillers.  With chronic whiplash, the length of time it takes to recover can be over a year, some victims are left with a permanent weakness and it can cause anxiety and depression. The severity of your whiplash, and your recovery time, will be taken into account when you make your personal injury claim.

    Claiming your compensation

    If you have sustained a whiplash injury as a result of a road accident in Redcar & Cleveland that was not your fault, and want to make a personal injury claim, you should contact Accident Advice Helpline for assistance.
