Whiplash claims in Hartlepool: What you need to know
As one of the country’s leading injury law firms we have handled a large number of whiplash claims in Hartlepool. We can help you claim personal injury compensation for your whiplash injury if the accident that you were involved in was someone else’s fault, and that accident took place within the past three years.
Whiplash is a muscular injury affecting the neck and shoulders. It happens when the head and neck are jolted forwards or backwards at speed, stretching the ligaments, so it is an injury common in car accidents. If you have whiplash there is little that you can do but take painkillers and take it easy for a while, but if you want to claim compensation you will have to go and see your doctor, so that your injury is recorded in your medical record.
