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.
