Great Witley has been around in one form or another for hundreds of years. The settlement actually predates the Norman Conquest. Today it is a village, so it has not grown much in size since those times. Few people live here, but there are many other larger settlements nearby in the north-western corner of Worcestershire. If you are familiar with the roads there, you may feel safer than if you have no prior knowledge of the area. With that said, there could still be a chance to have a car accident that might lead to a whiplash injury in Great Witley.
Would you know what to do if you suffered whiplash? For starters, you may not even be aware you have it until some hours after the crash has happened, so be aware of this factor.
How might a whiplash injury affect you?
This is worth thinking about, because many people don’t think beyond the pain and discomfort they will feel with this injury. The inability to move your head properly without pain could mean you are unable to drive for a period of time, as you won’t be able to look around you as you normally would. This could mean it is unsafe to drive – and it might mean you cannot get to work or drop your kids off at school as you usually would.
It is this type of injury and problem that will cause issues for you. It will also be taken into account if you do decide to try and claim compensation. You may receive a financial payment that would take into account how serious the injury is and how it affected your life, not to mention whether you might make a full recovery or whether the condition is chronic.
