A lot of people do not realise that there are many ways to sustain a whiplash injury in Haymarket. Individuals tend to assume that this is an injury that is merely associated with car crashes. This is indeed the main type of incident that results in whiplash injuries. Nonetheless, it is definitely not the only one.
Road traffic accidents are definitely the main type of incident that results in a whiplash injury. Yet, it is imperative to recognise what whiplash actually is. This is when you head quickly jolts forwards and then backwards, and thus it can cause significant pain and discomfort to the neck. When you think of the way whiplash occurs, you can easily see how it happens in many different ways. There is no reason why a whiplash injury in Haymarket could not arise because of a workplace accident or a slip or trip.
In fact, when it comes to making a claim for a whiplash injury in Haymarket, it does not really matter how the incident occurs. What matters is your ability to prove whether the accident was your fault or someone else’s. In addition to this, the whiplash injury must have occurred within the last three years. This is the time limit for starting personal injury claims.
Moreover, you will have had to have seen a medical professional as a result of your injuries. A lot of people bypass this step when they have experienced a minor injury as they don’t believe they need to see a doctor. However, if you do this there will be no medical evidence to help you with your claim. Your doctor can confirm the nature of your injury, the treatment you required and how long you were off work recovering.
