Picture the scene: you are driving along, and pull up at some traffic lights. When they change to green, you set off, but the driver of the car behind you is impatient and sets off a little too quickly. The result: you get a rear-end shunt.
The above scenario happens to many people, and can cause a lot of inconvenience. But it can also cause whiplash – and if you get a whiplash injury in Milnathort, it can cause even more problems for you.
Help is available
Fortunately, some of your problems can be solved by making a compensation claim. Whilst receiving a payout for your injury will not guarantee you a miraculous recovery in record time, or ease the pain, tenderness and stiffness that you experience when you get a whiplash injury in Milnathort, it will nevertheless be of some help. Here’s why.
A whiplash injury in Milnathort could hit you in the pocket
The good news about whiplash is that it is usually over in a few weeks, provided you get adequate rest and don’t do anything too strenuous. For a lot of people, this means they can’t go to work; even a job that’s relatively sedentary can involve movements that can be quite painful.
If you do need to take time off work, you could find yourself losing income – and if you need to buy in extra help from, for example, a childminder or home help, this could be a problem. Not only are you paying out more than usual, but you have less money in your bank account.
A successful claim will sort this out
If you claim compensation and your case is successfully settled, the payout you receive will enable you to get back on an even keel financially. Part of the payout is for reimbursement of expenditure, and another element is for the injury itself.
This is why it is important to keep receipts of your expenses, and records of your medical treatment – along with photographic evidence of your injuries and the scene of the accident that caused your whiplash injury in Milnathort.
