    Whiplash Helpline


    If you’ve had a non fault accident call the whiplash helpline at AAH

    If someone is driving their car in a new area, then they are more likely to have a car accident, as they are concentrating on the new roads that they are on and not on their driving. If that car driver goes into the back of your car with force, then you may end up suffering with whiplash, and then you may want to use the services of our whiplash helpline at Accident Advice Helpline.

    A Whiplash Solicitor can handle your whiplash claim

    If you have ever suffered whiplash then you know how painful and disabling it can be. It is painful because you damage your neck ligaments and tendons. As you are suffering a lot, you may want to use the services of a whiplash Solicitor, so they can help you to make an injury compensation claim.

    In this list below are the more common ways of getting whiplash

    Other than a car accident, there are more ways that you could suffer whiplash, such as:

    • Being injured in a contact sport such as boxing or rugby
    • Being knocked on the head by a solid or heavy object
    • Slipping or tripping over and banging your head

    Although the most common form of suffering whiplash is through a car accident when someone goes into the back of your car. Your head and neck will then move suddenly either forwards, backwards or sideways and then that is when you do damage to your neck. According to the insurance companies, whiplash is so common that an extra £90 a year is added to the insurance premiums.

    The common side effects of whiplash

    The most common side effects of whiplash are:

    • Depression
    • Pain in the neck area
    • Blurred vision and dizziness
    • Nausea
    • Lethargy
    • Stiffness and lack of movement in the neck area
    • Headaches
    • Back pain
    • Pins and needles or numbness in the arms and legs
    • Muscle spasms

    Your whiplash injury may not always come on immediately, it sometimes takes time to develop, often the day after the accident happened.

    If you have a mild form of whiplash then it should clear up on its own after a few weeks and you should not need to have any medical treatment. If your case is more serious then this could take a lot longer to heal and sometimes may even be permanent. Then you may want to use the services of a Whiplash Solicitor.
