Whiplash isn’t a little-known, rare condition – but many of us don’t know exactly what it is, and what should be done if you get a whiplash injury in Mill Hill.
To find out more, read on, because one of the UK’s foremost personal injury law firms – Accident Advice Helpline – has some information for you!
The basic facts about whiplash
Whiplash is caused by a sudden impact to the head, which puts strain on the neck’s tendons and ligaments. The symptoms are usually stiffness and tenderness – and pain. Sometimes, sufferers may experience headaches and dizziness; even nausea.
Since it is caused by impact, it is often a result of a road accident, but this isn’t the only way to get a whiplash injury in Mill Hill. You could just as easily get whiplash as a result of having a fall after slipping, or receiving a blow to the head in a game of sports.
Thankfully, recovery is usually complete within a few weeks, and is aided by little more than rest and pain medication if required.
Why should you claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Mill Hill?
Many people wonder why they should consider making a claim, and at Accident Advice Helpline, we say: why not make a claim?
Firstly, your whiplash injury has been caused by someone else. The discomfort and pain, the need to take time off work, the disruption to your life: none of this would have happened if someone else had done something properly (or not done something deliberate to cause it).
Secondly, as a result of this other person’s actions, you are losing money. You could be off work and losing wages, or having to pay for services (e.g. a home help, a childminder, and/or public transport). Perhaps you’re dealing with both reduced income and increased expenses.
Why suffer, when a successfully settled claim could mean that you recover your losses?
