Whiplash and other common road traffic accident injuries
Whiplash is probably the most common injury suffered by victims of road traffic accidents. It is the result of severe jolting to the head and neck, and can have a wide range of effects. Although it isn’t always a serious injury, it can cause on-going pain and discomfort.
It’s important to be aware that the pain from a whiplash injury may not be obvious until 6 to 24 hours after an accident. And even if you then feel it, it’s not possible to tell whether the injury will be thankfully short-lived and leave no lasting effects on you, or whether it will turn out to be more serious, and last for 6 months or longer.
Whatever your injury, though – be it whiplash, broken bones, nasty bruising or anything else – we can help. What is important is that you can tell us as much about the accident as possible, as well as about your injuries and what effect they’ve had on you and your life.
And remember – be sure to see a medical professional after any accident, even if you’re not sure how badly you’re hurt. Whether or not you want to claim road traffic accident compensation in Wiltshire, it’s important to get checked out, and to get the medical treatment you need.
How do you know if you’re entitled to make a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Wiltshire?
We can give you advice tailored to your particular circumstances when we speak with you.
However, in general, for a valid claim, the accident should’ve been someone else’s fault (and it helps if you know their name and/or insurance details, where possible); it should’ve taken place within the last three years (with a few exceptions); and you need to have seen a doctor about any injuries you sustained.
