    Whiplash injury in Middleton-in-Teesdale


    If you get a whiplash injury in Middleton-in-Teesdale, you could be eligible to claim compensation with Accident Advice Helpline – and the process is hassle-free.

    Getting whiplash

    Having an injury, of course, is not hassle-free. Even a relatively minor injury can have major effects on your everyday life, including financial hardship, and whiplash is no exception.

    Whiplash is caused by a sudden impact to the head, which jerks and puts strain on the ligaments and tendons in the neck. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a car accident that causes it; it can also be the result of a slip and fall, or a blow to the head.

    The symptoms of a whiplash injury in Middleton-in-Teesdale are usually apparent several hours after the event that caused the injury – sometimes, they are noticeable the following morning, upon waking. The symptoms are pain, stiffness, tenderness and difficulty in moving the neck.

    Why might financial hardship occur as a result of whiplash injury in Middleton-in-Teesdale?

    When you have whiplash, you are likely to need a period of rest. Thankfully, rest and painkillers usually take care of the injury, and there is no need for anything more complex to aid recovery.

    But while you rest, you may need time off work, and this could cause you to lose wages. On top of this, you could also need the services of a home help or a childminder. That’s not all, either: since you can’t drive, you may need public transport.

    It’s easy to see how the bills can mount up, but there’s no need to suffer in silence. Instead, you can make a compensation claim through Accident Advice Helpline and recover your losses!
