Whiplash from a car crash in Middlesbrough is a common injury. It happens when the head neck and shoulders are propelled forwards at speed, like in a sudden impact. This is why whiplash is such a common car crash injury, although a severe fall can cause whiplash, or a sporting accident.
How you can get whiplash from a car crash in Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough is a busy town, and like most busy urban areas, there are a high number of car accidents. Car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash. Most car accidents are relatively minor – those shunts at traffic lights or the minor collisions that happen when a driver is distracted by the radio, the phone, or the kids in the back of the car. Our roads are busy and accidents happen.
The symptoms of whiplash from a car crash in Middlesbrough sometimes take a day or two to appear, and although whiplash is rarely serious, the injury limits movement which can cause an awful lot of inconvenience. This is why many whiplash sufferers seek compensation for their injury.
Claiming for whiplash
As one of the UK’s leading injury law firms we have handled a large number of whiplash claims. You can claim compensation for your whiplash injury if the accident that caused your injury was someone else’s fault, and the accident took place within the past three years. Although there is little that your doctor can do to help alleviate the symptoms of your whiplash injury, you will need to book an appointment to see them, as your injury needs to be in your medical record in order to claim.
Claiming compensation is usually very straightforward. Most whiplash claims are settled out of court, so there is every chance that your claim will be too.
To claim, all you have to do is call our helpline. You will speak to one of our friendly claim advisors who will take some details from you, and explain the claim process in further detail. Then one of our injury lawyers will start work on your claim and work hard to get you the best compensation package possible. You can get an estimate of how much your whiplash claim could be worth by using the compensation calculator on our website.
