Everyone’s heard of London – it’s the UK’s capital city, the centre of the British political and financial establishments, and home to several million people. It also attracts a lot of tourists from around the world, who flock to its theatres, museums, galleries and other places of interest.
Almost everyone has heard of whiplash, too – including you, the reader! But do you know what it actually is? Do you also know that, if you get a whiplash injury in London, you could make a compensation claim?
Whose fault is it?
That’s right. If you get a whiplash injury in London, and it happens in an accident that was someone else’s fault, then you could be eligible to make a claim.
With all those taxis, cars, buses and bikes – and pedestrians, of course – milling around on the streets of the great city, there is plenty of potential for accidents to happen. Traffic collisions are not uncommon, and these are the usual cause of whiplash.
But you can also get whiplash if you receive a blow to the head, or if you are in a slip and fall accident.
How can I tell if I have whiplash?
You might not know as soon as you have had the accident whether you have sustained a whiplash injury in London. It may take several hours for it to become apparent; many people find out the following morning.
The symptoms are pain, stiffness, lack of movement, and tenderness in the neck. Headaches may also be experienced, and the symptoms can worsen for a few days after the initial accident.
Whiplash injury in London is, essentially, damage to the ligaments and tendons of the neck, which are put under strain when a sudden impact to the head is felt. That’s why it often results from car crashes.
How do I claim for whiplash injury in London?
The last thing you want when you are suffering from whiplash is to go through a lengthy, complicated process that involves dealing with lawyers, insurers and various other agencies.
