If you’ve been in a car accident, especially a rear-end collision, you could be suffering from whiplash.
This painful injury primarily affects the neck, but it is common for the victim to also feel pain in the back, shoulders and even arms and legs, depending on the severity of the injury. Whiplash can mean being relegated to a neck brace, having to take time off work and attend numerous physical therapy sessions. What’s more, many accident victims living with whiplash are left suffering physically for months, even years after the initial injury.
If this has happened to you, you’ve suffered enough. For the injustice of being wronged in an accident and the pain your injury has caused, seek financial compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.
Our law firm will fight diligently to ensure you are compensated for your severe whiplash symptoms, and will build a strong case to ensure you receive the maximum amount possible. For over fourteen years, Britain’s car accident victims have turned to us to get the help they need, and if you’re struggling in the wake of a collision, we can help you too.
Are you suffering with whiplash?
Whiplash occurs when the muscles in the neck are hyper-extended, usually during a serious impact.
For example, when the head is “whipped” back and forth during a rear-end collision, the muscles in the neck become damaged and inflamed. There are varying levels of whiplash, each presenting numerous painful side effects:
- Mild whiplash symptoms – neck pain, stiffness in the neck and shoulders, tenderness in the muscles
- Moderate whiplash symptoms – headaches, stiffness, muscle spasms
- Severe whiplash symptoms – vertigo, paraesthesia (tingling and numbness in the arms and legs), blurred vision
If you are suffering with any of these symptoms, you deserve to be compensated financially.
