If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you have either suffered a whiplash injury in Loddon recently, or it happened to you some time ago and you’ve found out that you could make a claim.
You will want to know the facts about whiplash injury, and about claims – and, at Accident Advice Helpline, we can certainly help you. Read on for some information!
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury to the neck – specifically, the neck’s tendons and ligaments. The cause is a sudden impact to the head, which jerks and pulls the neck, putting strain on it.
The sudden impact may result from a collision, but it’s not just road accidents that lead to whiplash. You can also suffer a whiplash injury in Loddon by slipping and falling, or receiving a blow to the head. The received wisdom that it is just car accidents that cause whiplash is not true!
Why can you claim for a whiplash injury?
You can put in a compensation claim for any personal injury that is caused by someone else, either by their deliberate actions or as a result of their negligence.
Whiplash is one such personal injury. Its symptoms are pain, stiffness, tenderness and an inability to move the neck. It can cause the sufferer considerable inconvenience and, often, some degree of financial difficulty.
Financial problems arising from a whiplash injury in Loddon
True, it’s not one of the most serious injuries that can happen, but a whiplash injury in Loddon will certainly need a few weeks of recovery. The treatment is usually rest and painkillers, but even a relatively simple and straightforward recovery plan involves at least some adjustments.
Taking time off work may be necessary, and you could find that you need to use a home help, travel in taxis and buses, and take prescription medication of some kind.
Loss of work can lead to loss of income, and using services and getting prescriptions can cost a lot of money.
If you claim and your case is successfully settled, the payment you are awarded could be of great help to you in clawing back these expenses.
