Getting a whiplash injury in Middleton could mean pain and inconvenience, and potential financial worry. But if you put in a claim through Accident Advice Helpline, you could recover your losses and have a stress-free recovery. Read on to find out more!
Whiplash: what is it?
Whiplash is a condition affecting the neck. Specifically, it affects the tendons and ligaments in the neck, which are damaged when the head jerks as a result of sudden impact.
A whiplash injury in Middleton may not become apparent until several hours after the accident that caused it. But the symptoms are tenderness, stiffness, a lack of movement, and pain – which can actually get worse for a few days after the initial impact.
How does a whiplash injury in Middleton affect you?
Easily diagnosed on the presenting symptoms, and treatable with little more than rest and painkillers, whiplash is usually not what could be described as a serious injury.
Nevertheless, it can cause inconvenience. If you get whiplash, you will be restricted in what you can do around the house; your social life will probably suffer, too, and you might not be able to go to work for some time (especially if your job involves a lot of physical activity).
Being off work could cause you to lose money, and this loss could be compounded by your need to pay for services such as those offered by a home help or a childminder. You could also have to take public transport, because you cannot drive.
Putting in a claim could mean you recoup your losses
Accident Advice Helpline can take on your case, if you qualify to claim compensation, and you could win a sum of money to help you get things back to normal and have your losses repaid.
Simply call our 24/7 hotline and speak to an advisor. Our team is professionally trained to guide you through the process of making a claim, and they will treat you with empathy and sensitivity as they do so.
If your case qualifies for compensation – and if your injury happened because of someone else, then you probably do – your advisor will pass your details to one of our team of no win no fee solicitors. Like our advisors, they conduct their work with integrity, dependability, reliability and accountability.
