    Whiplash from a car crash in St Andrews


    Have you been in an accident within the last three years and sustained a whiplash injury from a car crash in St Andrews? Was the accident caused by someone else?

    If so, you could be eligible to claim compensation and you could receive a payout that will help you to get everything back to normal again. You see, getting whiplash can cause a lot of disruption, and many people don’t realise this.

    What happens when you get whiplash from a car crash in St Andrews

    First, depending on the situation in which it happens, very little could happen, or it could be utter chaos. If you get whiplash from a car crash in St Andrews on a busy road, there are lots of onlookers, and the police are involved, then there could be a lot to deal with there and then.

    If you fall off your bike on a cycle path, or slip and fall in a corridor at work, then it might just involve some discomfort and embarrassment.

    It’s later on, when the symptoms show.

    What are the symptoms of whiplash?

    The symptoms may appear anything from a few hours to a few days after the initial impact, and they are usually pain, stiffness and tenderness in the neck.

    Other symptoms that people experience are headaches, dizziness and nausea.

    It’s not a pleasant injury (what is?) by any means, but at least you can take comfort from the fact that you should recover fully within a few weeks. However, it is during the recovery period that you might find yourself in some financial trouble.

    Money problems from whiplash

    While you recover from your whiplash injury, you might need time off work, and this could cause you to lose income. Even a day or two of lost income can make a difference to the running of your household.

    On top of this, you could also need to use a home help or childminder, and take buses and taxis to get out and about to the shops, etc. Services like these cost money, of course, and that’s something you’re struggling with.
