Road traffic incidents causing a whiplash injury in Holtye
A whiplash injury in Holtye is, unfortunately, not uncommon. This is one of the most popular types of injuries suffered, and one of the main reasons for experiencing it is due to road traffic accidents.
The majority of individuals involved in a car crash, no matter how major or minor, end up suffering from whiplash. This is because their head quickly jolts forward and backwards.
This can result in a whole host of symptoms, including the likes of sickness, pain in the neck, back pain, nausea, shoulder pain, loss of movement, poor vision, and more. These are all results of whiplash. Luckily, these symptoms only tend to last a few weeks or months at the very most, yet there are instances whereby whiplash can be severe.
If you have experienced a whiplash injury in Holtye because of a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you will be entitled to compensation. This is generally the case, so long as the accident occurred within the last three years and you have seen a medical professional for your injuries.
As mentioned, a whiplash injury in Holtye will tend to be a minor injury. Because of this, a lot of people feel they do not need to see a doctor, and that they can cope with the injury themselves. This is ill-advised for several reasons.
To begin with, it is imperative to be treated — you do not know how bad your injury could be if you do not receive the proper attention and treatment. It is also advisable because if you do not see a medical professional, you will not be able to get compensation for your whiplash injury in Holtye, as there will be no proof that you have indeed suffered one.
