Using Accident Advice Helpline for whiplash accidents
If you use our trained solicitors, then this is the correct thing for you to do if you have whiplash that was not your fault.
UK law states that if someone is injured in any type of accident that was not their fault, then they are entitled to compensation from the people who are responsible for their accident. This is to try and compensate for any pain and suffering you have been put through, and to recover any costs that you have had to find because of the accident.
The consequences of a whiplash injury
In the majority of cases of whiplash injuries they are usually mild, and it should heal itself on its own without too much trouble, as long as you take plenty of rest and do as you are told. If you have moderate whiplash, then this will take longer to heal, but the treatment is still the same, painkillers when needed and a little gentle exercise to relieve the stiffness in the neck.
Severe whiplash suffered can experience other symptoms as well, such as:
- Blurred vision and dizziness
- Tiredness through lack of sleep
- Depression and anxiety
- Pains in other parts of their body
- Pins and needles and tingling sensations in limbs
In the worst scenario, the victim is left with permanent weaknesses in the neck and back areas which, for some, means their lives never get back to normal.
Some patients are prescribed physiotherapy or massages to help, and some turn to acupuncture in an effort to get relief.
