Caterham is a name that many people would associate with cars, just like a whiplash injury in Caterham. Most people assume this is the only injury that is only sustained in road traffic accidents, usually when one car runs into the back of another.
But this a not the case, a whiplash injury in Caterham was around long before the invention of car and no doubt will still be around when cars have been replaced by some other mode of transport in the future.
This is because it happens so easily, just lifting something heavy incorrectly can cause a whiplash injury in Caterham, as can falling over, falling from a bike or motorbike or perhaps something solid hitting your head.
Whatever it is that caused your head to suddenly jolt and create this injury, if it was the actions of someone else that caused it, you could be entitled to compensation.
It is not only a whiplash injury in Caterham that is sustained in accidents
This is by no means the only injury sustained in an accident, the list of possible injuries is endless, and includes:
- Burns and scalds
- Broken bones
- Head and brain injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Back and spine injuries
- Damage to joints
- Eye injuries
- Facial injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal injuries
- Fatal injuries
Some of these injuries can have life changing effects for the victim and those close to them and this needs accounting for when a personal injury compensation claim is being made.
Other things to consider when making a claim for compensation
It is inevitable that an accident will cause extra expenses. There could be medical costs, you might need help to care for the children or for yourself if you are unable to carry out every day tasks. In fact any extra expenses caused by the accident can be reclaimed, but you must remember to get receipts for them to prove they have had to be paid.
The same applies to loss of income if you are employed or self employed. This can be recovered but the amount you have lost has to be substantiated. This can be done with wage slips to prove the reduction, but if you do not have these, your employer or accountant will be asked to confirm the loss.
