    Whiplash in Dover


    Understanding whiplash in Dover

    Whiplash is a common injury that happens when the head and neck are jolted forwards, backwards or sideways, straining the ligaments in the neck. The majority of whiplash in Dover claims arise from car accidents, but contact sports and even falls can cause this painful injury.

    After an accident, it is always a good idea to have a check-up with a medical professional, even if you feel ok. Whiplash isn’t a serious injury, and many victims make a full recovery within a few weeks. But if you suspect you have whiplash, and you want to claim compensation, you should still make an appointment to see your GP. There is little that he, or she, will be able to do other than recommend rest and painkillers, but to claim, you will need to have your whiplash injury noted in your medical record.

    Claiming compensation for whiplash

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline we can help accident victims get compensation for any injury, including whiplash. Indeed, whiplash claims are one of the most common claim types.

    To get compensation for your whiplash injury, the accident that caused the injury needs to have been someone else’s fault, and the accident needs to have taken place within the past three years.

    To claim, you need to contact our call centre, so that one of our advisors can take some details from you. Those details will then be passed to one of our lawyers, so that they can start legal proceedings on your behalf.
