What is whiplash – and how can you be awarded a payout for a whiplash injury in Netherlee that occurred as the result of someone else’s actions or negligence? Read on and find out!
Whiplash: some information
Whiplash is a condition that arises as a result of a sudden impact to the head. This impact causes the head to jerk; this jerking, in turn, puts a strain on the neck’s tendons and ligaments.
The symptoms, which may not be apparent until hours after the initial impact, are as follows: pain, stiffness and tenderness. Some people also experience dizziness, headaches and nausea.
This sounds pretty grim, and it is – but the recovery period is usually quick. Most cases are over within a matter of weeks and are treatable with rest and painkillers.
How can a whiplash injury in Netherlee result in a compensation claim?
While you are recovering from a whiplash injury, you could need to have some time off work. When you are not working, you could be at risk of losing wages, which could cause you worry – the last thing you need when you are trying to recover from an injury.
On top of this, you could also need help during your recovery from a whiplash injury in Netherlee– and that costs money. Childminders and home helps need paying; taxi drivers and bus drivers ask for fares. Before too long, a few expenses have mounted up.
Why this has happened
Your expenses and losses have happened, basically, because of someone else’s actions or negligence. Perhaps it was a driver who was a little too quick in setting off behind you at the lights, thus bashing into your back bumper; maybe it was someone not putting a sign up after polishing a floor, which you then slipped on.
If this is the case, then you could claim compensation – and if you win, you could be awarded a payout!
