There are over 800,000 road traffic accidents every year in the UK. One of the most common injuries caused in these accidents is whiplash. If you have recently suffered from a whiplash injury in Ascot, or anywhere else in the UK, then you may benefit from using the services of Accident Advice Helpline.
Symptoms of a whiplash injury in Ascot
A sore, stiff neck is the most common symptom associated with a whiplash injury in Ascot but this can also lead to other complications including backache, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, aching muscles in the shoulders and arms and jaw ache. Whiplash can also cause people to suffer from anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and insomnia.
A whiplash injury in Ascot can result in long-term medical treatment being needed by the victim. 50% of people who suffer a whiplash injury will require long term medical treatment and 2% of people will be classed as permanently disabled.
If you have suffered a whiplash injury it is important that you receive medical treatment for all of your symptoms. This will make it possible for you to make the compensation claim you are entitled to.
Sustaining a whiplash injury can adversely affect your everyday life. For instance, while you recover from your injury you may have to take time off work, which could result in a loss of income. In the worst case you may not be able to return to work. The financial implications of such a scenario can cause stress for you and your entire family. In addition you may have to pay out extra expenses for prescriptions and medical treatment to aid your recovery.
Furthermore as your ability to carry out normal everyday duties may be hampered you may find yourself having to hire home help and child minders. Once again this increases the financial stress you will already be facing during your recovery.
In light of these factors if your whiplash injury was caused by the negligence or actions of another person then the fact that you have to suffer and pay for their error may make the situation seem even more unjust.
So why not attempt to readdress the balance of this injustice and make a claim for your whiplash injury in Ascot with Accident Advice Helpline?
