Whiplash is caused when people experience a sudden jolt to the body or head, which can bring about damage to muscles, tendons, ligaments or other soft tissues in the neck. If you think you have been in an accident and suffered whiplash from a car crash in East Dorset, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline today.
Whiplash is often associated with just car accidents, but it is an injury that can also be suffered after a fall, slip or trip.
Can I claim compensation if I have had whiplash?
The amount of compensation you could claim will depend on the severity of the injuries you sustained and how the accident you were involved in happened. There is no set amount you can get for compensation, and a number of factors will decide this.
If you think you have experienced whiplash you might have suffered the following symptoms:
- Neck pain
- Soreness in the neck and upper back
- Stiffness of the neck, upper back and shoulders
- Restricted movement of the neck
- Pain in the shoulders
- Muscle spasms
If you have had an accident in the last 3 years and suffered any of these symptoms and sought medical advice for them, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline today.
In a lot of cases, the signs of whiplash will be obvious very quickly following the accident and the severity of the symptoms can vary a lot.
