    Severe whiplash


    If you’ve been in a serious car accident, you may well have sustained a number of painful injuries, including severe whiplash.

    Whiplash occurs when the head is whipped back and forth violently, which can lead to damage to the muscles, nerves and tendons in the neck. If you’re involved in an accident where the trauma to the head and neck is serious, this whiplash can lead to a number of painful and often recurring side effects, including:

    • Back pain
    • Paraesthesia (pins and needles) in limbs
    • Pain and stiffness in the neck
    • Sleeplessness
    • Nausea
    • Muscle spasm
    • Blurred vision and nausea
    • Vertigo

    If you or a loved one is living with severe whiplash, you could be entitled to make a claim for financial compensation.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we help accident victims make claims for whiplash on a No Win, No Fee* basis. This means there’s nothing payable upfront to get started with a claim, and there is nothing to pay unless your whiplash claim has a successful outcome. We do this to ensure everyone can afford the best possible legal care after an accident, and to demonstrate our commitment to winning each and every case we undertake.

    You can be entitled to make a claim if you’ve sustained whiplash in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another motorist. This can be using a handheld device behind the wheel, driving under the influence, failing to signal or give way or simply driving recklessly.
