    Whiplash Injury in Michaelwood

    If you suffer a whiplash injury in Michaelwood, or anywhere else in the country, you may be entitled to compensation. If the accident that caused your whiplash injury in Michaelwood was the fault of someone else, you need to be considering making a personal injury claim. The accident must have happened within the last three years and a medical report will be needed from whoever treated your whiplash injury in Michaelwood.

    The consequences of a whiplash injury in Michaelwood

    A whiplash injury can be caused in hundreds of different ways. Although most people will think that it comes from two cars crashing, anything that causes a sudden jolt to your head can create this sprain in your neck. For most sufferers it will heal itself in just a few weeks, but for others it can take months. It is not usually apparent immediately after an accident and is often the next day before the symptoms start to appear. It can be very painful, but in the first few days sufferers can also experience:

    • Nausea
    • Pins and needles in the arms and hands
    • Stiffness to the neck and shoulders
    • Lower back pain
    • Dizziness
    • Sleeplessness
    • Depression

    Some people never fully recover from whiplash and are left with a weakness in their backs and necks.

    Claiming compensation for your whiplash injury

    If the accident that caused your whiplash injury was the fault of someone else and you want to make a compensation claim, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline now. You only have three years from the date of the accident to get your claim started. That may sound like a long time, but it soon flies by and you do not want to lose out on your compensation because you left it too late.

    Even a few weeks of discomfort should be compensated for. In that time you may have to lose time off work and spend extra money on medical costs and maybe help around the home or with your children until you have recovered.
