    Whiplash Injury in Millom

    Whiplash is a condition that many of us have heard about – but what is it, exactly? And how can a whiplash injury in Millom lead to a compensation payout?

    Let Accident Advice Helpline, a personal injury law firm with 14 years’ experience of handling whiplash cases, tell you all about it!

    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash is a condition affecting the neck. Specifically, it is the tendons and ligaments within the neck that are affected, being put under strain as the result of the head jerking.

    The cause of the head’s sharp movement is sudden impact, which is why a whiplash injury in Millom may occur as a result of a car accident. But that’s not the only way it can happen.

    You are at risk of whiplash from slipping and falling, for example, or from getting a head injury during a game of contact sports (e.g. rugby).

    Fortunately, the condition is easily diagnosed and treated. The pain, stiffness and tenderness are sufficient for diagnostic purposes, and all you will usually need is some rest, plus painkillers as required.

    A whiplash injury in Millom could cause you some money worries

    One problem that even relatively minor injuries such as whiplash can cause is financial hardship. While you are recovering, you could need time off work, and this means you could lose wages.

    Compounding your losses are your extra expenses. You wouldn’t normally need a home help or childminder, for example, but while your mobility is affected, you might. You could be unable to drive, too, which means you will need to use taxis and buses. All of this extra expenditure adds up – and it’s even harder to cope with when you have less money coming in.

    What you can do about it

    If this situation sounds familiar to you, why not call up Accident Advice Helpline and make a claim for compensation?

    Our lines are open 24/7 and are staffed by professional, friendly advisors, who are trained to take you through the process of claiming.

    Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. Those who would prefer someone to contact them instead can text “claim365” to 88010, and someone from our team of advisors will be in touch!
