Solicitor in Appleby-in-Westmorland


Anyone, it does not matter who you are, could sustain a whiplash injury if they fell off their horse or maybe tripped downstairs. It is more common to get it in a rear end shunt between two cars or while playing contact sports such as rugby or boxing, but there are many different ways you can sustain a whiplash injury.

If you sustain a whiplash injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to use a solicitor in Appleby-in-Westmorland at Accident Advice Helpline, to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

A solicitor in Appleby-in-Westmorland and the discomfort of whiplash

What causes whiplash is the sudden jolting of the head out of its normal movement area.  This damages the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the neck and can be extremely painful. As well as the pain, the other symptoms that can be experienced are:

  • Blurred vision.
  • Dizziness.
  • Pins and needles in the arms and legs.
  • Backache.
  • Headaches.
  • Nausea.
  • Sleeplessness.
  • Depression.
  • Stiffness in the back and neck.

Any of these symptoms might not show till the day after an accident, but if they do you should seek medical attention to ensure there are no other injuries, such as cracked or broken bones.

The other things that you can claim for

Apart from pain, suffering and the trauma you have suffered there are material things that can be part of your claim, for example:

  • Travel costs.
  • Care costs.
  • Extra medical expenses.
  • Childcare.
  • Loss of earnings.

Any cost or loss you have had to bear because of the accident can be reclaimed providing you have proof of them. Every accident, every injury and every victim is different and each claim is looked at on an individual basis, including the impact on your life that the injury has had.
