You may wish to make an injury compensation claim, if you have been involved in a car crash that was through no fault of your own and as a result ended up with a whiplash injury.
It is not just car crashes that cause whiplash, and it is not a new injury that has only happened since the invention of cars. It has an injury that has always been around because any sudden jolt to the head or neck will cause it. Over the centuries it has had various different names, but it was originally called a sprain in the neck, because that is basically what it is.
If you are the innocent victim of any accident and you suffered injuries as a result that needed medical attention, then call the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline, to make an injury compensation claim, against the person responsible.
The medical professional will not be able to diagnose your whiplash injury, as there are no tests that can be carried out for whiplash. They diagnose it by your information of your accident and your symptoms.
There are some people who will laugh at your condition as they do not see it as a real injury. But it is, and if they had ever suffered from it, they would realise just how painful and stressful it can be. If the accident and the injury was through no fault of your own then call the solicitors to make an injury claim.
The effects of a whiplash injury
The side effects of whiplash do not always show themselves immediately. They can develop a few days after the accident. The symptoms depend on the amount of force that caused the injury. At their worst, they can include:
- Stiffness and lack of movement in the neck area
- Back pain
- Pins and needles or numbness in the arms and legs
- Muscle spasms
- Blurred vision
- Pain in the neck area
