Have you suffered from whiplash within the past three years?
Road traffic accidents happen every single day and with more road users on the road than ever, there’s no surprise that the A&E departments around the UK are seeing more and more victims suffering from whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a victim has endured a level of damage to the soft tissue in their neck, back and shoulders. This unfortunately, causes terrible pain and can actually cause an individual to have to take time off work and lose a certain level of their mobility for a period of time.
Serious levels of whiplash can cause extreme knock on effects such as damage to bones, joints or ligaments in other areas of your body. Whiplash causes bruising to the soft tissue and causes ligament tearing – which can not only be very painful, but require various different specialist scans. So, if your whiplash was caused by another individual, took place within the past three years and you have the medical records to back this up, phone Accident Advice Helpline and discover what our solicitors in Markfield can do for you in terms of compensation.
Whiplash side effects
Because whiplash affects the neck and surrounding areas, it can be very difficult for you to get into a comfortable position or even sleep without being in pain. Some other side effects can include headaches, dizziness, pain in the spine, tiredness, fainting and many others. By reporting any side effects to your doctor, you will be able to get treated for it quicker and it can also be used in your claim for compensation which can increase the amount of compensation paid out.
Emotional distress and anxiety are very common side effects for anyone with whiplash.
