    Whiplash from a car crash in Eastleigh

    Have you suffered debilitating whiplash from a car crash in Eastleigh? If you have, you may not be able to carry out your job. If this is the case and you lose any earnings, you can claim for this loss when you register your personal injury claim with us here at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Diagnosing whiplash

    Depending on the severity of the whiplash injury you have sustained you may be offered one of the following methods of diagnosis.

    • X-ray – this is normally taken if there is a suspicion of a fracture or any instability in the cervical spine
    • MRI scan – this is sometimes used when there is a possibility of inter-vertebral disc herniation, injury to, or pressure being put on, a nerve or the spinal-cord itself, or any suspicion of muscle and/or ligament damage
    • Medial Branch Block (MBB) – this is an injection which is administered to establish whether a facet joint is exacerbating neck pain
    • Discography – this is an injection administered into a spinal disc and is only used in the most extreme cases to determine whether or not it is a disc that is exacerbating the pain
    • CT scan – a CT scan is usually combined with what is known as a myelogram (a dye) and is used when a whiplash associated disorder isn’t responding to treatment
    • EMG and NCV – these are tests that are carried out if there is a suspicion that any nerves are cracked or damaged

    Whatever methodology is used by a hospital or your doctor, getting an official medical diagnosis for any whiplash injury you intend to claim for is essential. Without it your claim may well be rejected.

    Estimating your claim for whiplash from a car crash in Eastleigh

    The amount of compensation awarded for whiplash from a car crash in Eastleigh can vary anywhere from approximately £1,000 to as much as £97,500 for more severe cases that include spinal damage. To get an idea of the basic amount of compensation you could expect to be awarded, you should take the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test.

    Whiplash injury is quite a controversial injury at this point in time because of the number of fraudulent claims that are being raised. That’s why getting a proper medical diagnosis is so important.
