What is whiplash?
Whiplash is the name given to a common injury which is sustained in the neck, usually after an impact which causes a sudden movement to the neck or head. If the neck is suddenly thrown backwards, forwards or sideways, it can cause the tendons and ligaments of the neck to stretch or tear and this can be extremely painful for the sufferer.
Claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Mortehoe
It is possible to claim compensation for a whiplash injury no matter how it was caused, as long as the blame for the accident lies with another person. So, you can claim whether you were hit by a car, tripped on a pavement, or got hit on your head by something.
In order to be eligible to launch a whiplash injury in Mortehoe claim, not only do you need to be able to prove that your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence, but you also need to prove that you actually sustained injuries, which means that you will need to visit a doctor and get an official diagnosis.
Further to that, you can only make a claim up to 3 years from the date for your accident. If your injuries were sustained more than 3 years ago, then unfortunately it is very unlikely you will be able to make a claim.
