If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a car crash that was not your fault, then you may suffer from an injury that is called whiplash. If this happens to you then you should contact the solicitors in Hatfield to make an injury compensation claim.
The cause of whiplash is when your head is moved suddenly out of its normal movement zone, either forwards, backwards or sideways. This can then lead to damaging your neck ligaments and tendons. If this happened in another part of your body it would be called a sprain. You should see a doctor so they can be aware of your accident and injury, but usually no medical treatment would be needed.
If this has happened to you then please call the solicitors in Hatfield to make an injury compensation claim.
If your whiplash is mild, then this should heal itself within a few weeks of rest, and you should not need medical attention, but should at least get the injury checked over by your doctor.
Serious cases of whiplash
Serious cases of whiplash can be terrible and even life changing. It can create a whole lot of symptoms other than pain and stiffness to the neck, for instance:Open Claim Calculator
