If you get a whiplash injury in Middlesbrough, you could be eligible to claim compensation – and if you win your case, your recovery could be free of stress and hassle.
For many people, whiplash results from a car accident, although this is not always the case. Sometimes, car accident victims are lucky enough to escape without whiplash; it is also possible for whiplash to be caused by incidents other than vehicle collisions.
Whatever the cause, if your whiplash happened because of someone else’s actions or negligence, then you could qualify to claim compensation.
First things first!
When you get a whiplash injury, before you even think about making a claim, it is best to get yourself checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.
For many people, this happens several hours after the accident itself; maybe even the morning after. That’s because it takes a little while for the symptoms to become apparent.
The symptoms are pain, stiffness, tenderness and a lack of mobility in the neck, and the diagnosis is usually made by the doctor upon observation of these symptoms, with no need for any complex tests.
Claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Middlesbrough
Many people wonder why they might need to make a claim. After all, whiplash is usually not serious; it is certainly inconvenient and painful, but it normally clears up within a few weeks.
Whilst that may be the case, you could lose money while you are recovering. You could need to take time off work, which means you lose income. On top of this, you might also have to pay for a home help or childminder to give you a hand with all the usual chores you are unable to cope with.
Why be out of pocket as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault? If you claim, you could claw back your losses. It certainly makes sense to think about going ahead – and you can get started whenever you like with Accident Advice Helpline!
