Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Betwy-Yn-Rhos?
If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Betwy-Yn-Rhos it may be the case that it took some time to manifest itself after the accident. The reason for this is that generally whiplash takes around 6 to 12 hours to really become evident.
The most common way to sustain a whiplash injury is to be involved in a road traffic accident. While many people walk away from road traffic accidents, it is only in the hours that follow that the symptoms and effects of whiplash become apparent.
Here are some of the most common whiplash symptoms suffered by those involved in road traffic accidents.
- Neck pain
- Upper back and shoulder pain
- Spinal injury
- Jaw pain
- Chest and upper stomach pain
Of course the above is not an exhaustive list because each individual accident victim can suffer from a variety of different symptoms. With this in mind, if you have been in an accident and sought medical attention, your GP should have been able to make a definitive diagnosis.
What’s next for you?
Once you have sought medical attention, and you are still within three years of the accident, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you are indeed eligible to make a compensation claim.
The law says that you must have sought medical attention, not been responsible for the accident and pursue a claim within three years of the date of the accident. If these criteria apply to you then there is every chance you have the right to seek compensation from those responsible for your accident.
Call Accident Advice Helpline today and discuss your accident and subsequent injuries with one of our advisers. They will confirm your eligibility to make a claim and pass on your details to one of our no-win, no-fee* solicitors if you want us to represent you.
You can call any day and speak to one of the team and they will be able to provide you with the advice and information you need. The numbers to call are 0800 689 0500, if you are calling from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 if you are calling from a mobile.
