A whiplash injury in Lochinver may cause you more than just pain, stiffness and tenderness in your neck; it could affect your daily life, as well as your finances.
Has this happened to you?
Many people end up with whiplash if they have been in a car accident. But this isn’t the only cause of a whiplash injury. Such an injury may be sustained when you receive a blow to the head, or if you slip and fall.
All that is needed for a whiplash injury to occur is the jerking of the head as a result of a sudden impact. When this happens, the tendons and ligaments in the neck are put under strain.
A few hours later
You may not be immediately aware that you have suffered whiplash in Lochinver. In fact, people often report to their GP the following day, having woken up in pain, with a stiff neck that they find difficult to move.
Usually, the diagnosis is quick, the treatment is simple (with no more than rest and painkillers required), and recovery is complete within a matter of weeks. Some cases last longer, and may be accompanied by depression, but this isn’t the normal course of events.
Your finances after a whiplash in Lochinver
In order to recover, it is often necessary to take time off work. This being the case, people may lose income.
Compounding their hardship is a string of expenses for services that may be necessary to keep things ticking over. People may find that they need a home help to take care of the chores, or a childminder to take the children to school. They may also need taxis to get out and about.
A successful settlement to a compensation claim means that these losses can be reimbursed. If you are in this situation, why not begin a claim yourself?
