What complicates whiplash injury?
Personal injury compensation claim for whiplash probably constitutes the highest percentage of injury claim category in the UK. It is such a common injury, resulting usually from high impact car crashes and sudden stops, or a shunt up the backside. Even a relatively minor accident like falling from a bike or a horse can cause whiplash. It’s no trivial matter. Usually the sufferer recovers within a few days or a couple of weeks, and can expect a compensation payout of a thousand pounds or two, if someone else was to blame for the accident, but in some cases complications can arise. The problem with whiplash injury is it can cause hidden damage with those symptoms emerging later. These include migraines, problems with vision or hearing, pins and needles in arms and shoulders and other numbness and restrictions of movement. It can even cause hearing and balance problems, and nausea. In some cases the upper spine and the neck can suffer long term damage. In these cases severe whiplash compensation amounts of several thousand pounds may be appropriate. Medical opinions will be sought. Whiplash injury is hard to prove and a claimant should expect to undergo fairly detailed medical investigations in order for the medics to establish exactly what damage has been done.
