    Whiplash injury in Long Melford

    Has whiplash affected you?

    What are the symptoms of whiplash? How can they cause you to need the services of a personal injury claims service such as Accident Advice Helpline?

    Read on to find out what you should be aware of in the event you suffer a whiplash injury in Long Melford.

    The symptoms of whiplash

    The symptoms of a whiplash injury in Long Melford may not become apparent until a few hours after the accident that caused it. Some people first realise they could have whiplash when they wake up the next morning.

    Pain, stiffness, and tenderness are the usual symptoms. Some people also experience other symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness, and or nausea. The symptoms may worsen for some days after the initial event.

    Why you might need a claims service

    When you get whiplash, you might need to seek the services of a home help or a childminder whilst you recover. Since you are unlikely to be able to drive, you might need to take buses or taxis too, all causing additional costs to you.

    All of these things cost money, and your ability to pay for these services – on top of your usual bills – could be hampered by the lack of funds you could experience as a result of being off work during your recovery.

    Don’t suffer in silence as your cash goes down the drain because of someone else’s actions or negligence. Take action if you have been affected by whiplash today.

    Other things you should know

    If you claim for a whiplash injury in Long Melford, you will need to go for an additional medical assessment. This is essential for the claim to proceed.

    You should also be aware that you normally have three years from the date of your injury to make a claim. This is the cut-off, unless you were a minor at the time of your injury.

    It is a good idea to start a file, too. Into this file, you should put all the receipts for expenditure related to your claim, and the records of your medical treatment.
