Whiplash Injury in Midsomer Norton


There is an injury that many people suffer from. If you read on, can you guess what it is?

It can be caused in a variety of ways – for example, from a car accident, a slip and fall, or an incident whilst playing sports. Affecting the neck, it is a painful injury, but not usually serious – it is easily treatable and recovery usually takes no longer than a few weeks.

The answer: whiplash

Many people reading this will by now have probably guessed at whiplash, and that is the correct answer.

If you came to that answer, perhaps the phrase “car accident” led you to it. This is probably the major cause of whiplash injury in Midsomer Norton, but there are other ways to get whiplash.

It is the tendons and ligaments in the neck that are affected by whiplash, and that is because of the head jerking upon sudden impact.

Although recovery is usually fairly quick, if you get whiplash, you might find that you need to take time off work. It is while you are off work that things could get rather difficult.

The difficulties associated with a whiplash injury in Midsomer Norton

When you return from the doctor’s surgery, you will probably call your employer and let them know that you cannot go to work today – in fact, you will not be able to go in for some time. Even if you don’t have a job that involves a lot of physical labour, the pain and stiffness may be too great for you to be able to function properly.

The trouble, of course, with being absent from work, is that your wages might drop – and, with extra expenses to consider, you could experience some hardship.

What extra expenses?

During your recovery from your whiplash injury in Midsomer Norton, you could need a home help or a childminder; maybe you will need to pay for prescriptions, too. The costs mount up, and cause you stress – which is not good for your recovery.

So why not claim compensation?

How does claiming compensation help?

If you claim and your case is successful, you will receive a payout. Part of this is for the injury itself, and another part of it is to reimburse you for the expenses you have incurred.
