    Whiplash Injury in Hertingfordbury

    Suffered a whiplash injury in Hertingfordbury? We can help, no money needed

    Whiplash is a generic term used to describe injuries that occur in the neck area. A whiplash injury in Hertingfordbury may occur due to the neck being violently and/or suddenly jerked in one direction and then another, either forwards and backwards or side to side. Whiplash is more probable to arise from an accident that has been on the road, but it can also be caused by industrial injuries, sports/leisure injuries, or slips, trips and falls.

    If you suffer from whiplash and want information on how much your case could be worth, then use our 30-second online test:

    Every case will be unique, but our solicitors make the same guarantee to all of our clients, which is that the maximum compensation possible will always be recovered for you. Through Accident Advice Helpline, this comes to in excess of £35 million per year!

    What is a whiplash injury in Hertingfordbury?

    Whiplash can damage ligaments and muscles whose function is to protect certain areas of your body, such as the back of the spine and the neck. These are called facet capsules, and they are highly prone to whiplash injuries. Your body’s tendons and muscles are stretched past their normal limits, which can result in cases of disc herniation as well as nerve root damage to the vertebrae. In the more extreme cases of whiplash injuries, the vertebrae can become fractured or even dislocated, leading to lifelong problems. 

    What are the symptoms?

    To enable you to claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline, you must have received medical treatment for your whiplash injury in Hertingfordbury; however, even with the most up-to-date X-ray machines, it can still be difficult to pinpoint. The most common symptoms of whiplash are stiffness and pain in the neck, and turning of the head can be difficult. Pain can also be felt throughout the entire torso in some cases.

    As well as musculoskeletal symptoms, you could possibly experience dizziness, nausea, difficulty swallowing, and even blurred vision. Sufferers can become irritable, lack concentration, and experience fatigue, and while these symptoms should usually be quite short-lived they might be endured for a matter of weeks, months, or even years and have an effect on every aspect of your life. Our solicitors will make sure that you are compensated for every single iota of suffering endured, and we can have all of your accident-related expenditures reclaimed through our reimbursement service, which is in addition to your compensation.

    Gain advice and consider claiming for your whiplash injury in Hertingfordbury today.
