Whiplash claims in East Staffordshire
Whiplash is a common injury affecting the neck and shoulders. Whiplash happens when the head and neck are propelled forwards, backwards or sideways at an unnatural speed, causing the tendons and ligaments in the neck to stretch.
It normally takes a week or two to recover from whiplash, and there is little that you can do except take painkillers – and take it easy!
Can you claim compensation?
If the accident that caused your whiplash injury was someone else’s fault, you may be able to claim compensation. Although whiplash isn’t a serious injury, it may still have cost you financially, and it would probably have caused you a great deal of inconvenience. If this is the case, you should seek compensation.
The amount of compensation that you can get for a whiplash injury depends on how much if affected your life while you were recovering, but our lawyers always do their best to get the best compensation packages possible. If you would like an estimate of how much your claim could be worth, we have a compensation calculator on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
