If you are in an accident and suffer a whiplash injury in Arisaig, you will probably experience some symptoms. Here is some useful information about it.
What happens when you get a whiplash injury in Arisaig?
Whiplash happens when you experience sudden impact to the head, which causes your neck’s tendons and ligaments to suffer damage.
There are several symptoms arising from this. You may notice pain in your neck, and possibly stiffness or tenderness. It may also be difficult to move your neck properly, and you could experience headaches in addition to all these other symptoms.
You will probably notice these symptoms developing up to about 12 hours after the accident – and worsening in the subsequent days.
Are there other problems in addition to these symptoms?
Sadly, it is almost certain that your whiplash injury in Arisaig will cause you other problems. First of all, you will probably need some time off work; depending on the severity of the injury, this could mean being absent from your workplace for several weeks or even months.
With any long period off work comes the risk of losing earnings, even if your employer has a generous sick pay policy.
On top of this potential loss, you will be paying out for prescriptions, taxi fares (because you can’t drive), a home help (for the household chores) and possibly even childcare.
Given this state of affairs, seeking compensation seems like a sensible idea.

You will need a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ solicitor to deal with your case, and Accident Advice Helpline can take on your claim with one of our team of solicitors and secure you a payout that will take care of the financial problems that you are experiencing. The payment also addresses the injury itself.
