What does the word “whiplash” mean to you? If you’ve had it, it might conjure up pain, stiffness, and tenderness; if you haven’t experienced these symptoms, you are probably vaguely aware of it as a neck injury.
Whatever the case may be, you need to know about it, because if you suffer a whiplash injury in Nethy Bridge, you will want to know what to do.
The characteristics of whiplash
The symptoms of whiplash, described above, may become apparent a few hours after the accident that caused it. It may even be the next day when the symptoms present themselves – and they could worsen for a few days.
Recovery is, thankfully, relatively swift. Most cases usually clear up within a few weeks, and need nothing more than painkillers and adequate rest.
But what caused the whiplash injury in Nethy Bridge?
A whiplash injury needs sudden impact in order for it to happen. This could be in the form of a car accident, or a slip and fall. Another possibility is a sporting accident.
It doesn’t matter, though, how it happened. What matters is who caused it! If the accident was caused by someone else, you could claim compensation for your injury.
Making a compensation claim
To get started with your claim, you simply need to call Accident Advice Helpline, a law firm with 14 years’ experience in the business and a reputation for providing the best possible client care.
Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone, and your call will be answered by one of our professional, friendly advisors.
Alternatively, you can text “claim365” to 88010, and someone will be in touch with you.
What you need to know about claiming compensation
There are some things you need to know about making a claim for whiplash injury in Nethy Bridge. First of all, you should consider keeping records of any receipts of expenses related to your injury. These could be anything from public transport receipts to home help receipts.
This is because the money you are awarded, if your claim is successful, will consist of an element for the injury and an element for reimbursement of expenditure.
Of course, you are not guaranteed success – but all our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis, which should give you some peace of mind in the unfortunate event that your claim is lost.
You probably won’t need to go to court; most claims can be settled entirely by phone, by your solicitor.
