Personal injury claims can be a daunting and difficult process, however contacting a personal injury lawyer can make it a more straightforward task.
A whiplash injury in Abridge is the same as whiplash in any other part of the UK and a claim for it would be handled in the same way.
To a personal injury lawyer whiplash is a simple and straightforward claim against the parties in the wrong, however for the victim it may feel like it is a battle they can not win.
Whiplash is an injury usually in the neck and spine, it can be caused by many different things which involve the neck being pushed forwards and then backwards abruptly. It can leave a victim feeling stiffness in the neck, soreness between the shoulders and the neck and sometimes even pins and needles in the arms and legs.
This injury can be very debilitating and leave people with life changing effects. Everyday tasks suddenly become very difficult to achieve, simple things such as, putting on your socks, tying your shoelaces and even hanging the washing can all become nigh on impossible if you have sustained a whiplash injury in Abridge.
It is a simple process to diagnose whiplash: a diagnosis occurs through patient history, by an examination of the neck and head, through an X-ray that can rule out bone fractures, or a C.T scan.
