Have you had a car accident during the past three years? If so, you will know just how frustrating it is to get everything back on track afterwards, even if you’ve suffered a relatively minor injury such as whiplash.
Although whiplash from a car crash in Merseyside usually heals within a matter of weeks, and needs little more than rest and painkillers to bring about recovery, the period after the car crash can be fraught with difficulty.
What difficulties can whiplash from a car crash in Merseyside cause?
Firstly, there is the pain. It may take several hours to become apparent, but it can make it difficult to carry out your usual tasks. Going to work, even if you don’t have a particularly physically demanding job, might be impossible (at least for a few days).
As a result of being off work, you could find that you lose income. Some people work for companies that pay full sick pay, but that’s not the case for a lot of people. Even just a few days on statutory sick pay (which may be considerably less than your usual wage) can cause you some serious worries about how you’ll make ends meet.
In addition to loss of income, you could experience an increase in your expenditure. Can’t do your household chores? You might have no choice but to hire a home help. Can’t pick up your children from school? You could have to hire a childminder to assist you with after‑school care.
How can you remedy this situation?
Fortunately, it’s possible to turn things around, and all it takes to get started is one phone call to Accident Advice Helpline.
We are a law firm with more than 15 years’ experience of dealing with accident claims on behalf of people who have suffered personal injury through no fault of their own.
Provided you had your accident within the past three years, and it was caused by someone else, you could be eligible to claim for your whiplash injury.
You will need to have had your whiplash confirmed by your doctor, because there has to be medical evidence of personal injury in order for a claim to be made. It may also be necessary for you to attend another medical assessment, and if this is the case, we will let you know.
