Whiplash is an unseen injury, which is normally gained from a car accident. A sudden force causing your head to be jolted backwards, forwards or to the side causes it. This in turn causes the muscles in your neck to tear or sprain, leaving the recipient in almost unbearable pain. This pain may not be apparent initially, but once it hits you, that’s it. It is time to think about making compensation a claim, whether you sustained your whiplash injury in Aberystwyth or anywhere else in the UK.
If you are lucky enough it may only affect you for a short period of time. On the other hand if you are unfortunate it may affect you for the rest of your life, in many different ways. It could affect you earning a living or just general normal day to day tasks such as getting dressed in the morning, or taking a shower could be a painful event.
Then there is the mundane task of cleaning the house. If unable to do this yourself, you may need to employ somebody to do so. When you make a personal injury claim you are able to recoup back any costs or losses incurred through this injury. Once you have proof of loss of earnings or any payment you are able to reclaim your money.
