Whiplash Injury in New Romney


How does whiplash happen?  What are its effects?  What can you do if you suffer a whiplash injury in New Romney?

Many people wonder about these things, and at Accident Advice Helpline, we like to stop people from wondering about things, and instead, provide them with some information that could help them, should they ever be in such a position.

The facts about whiplash

Whiplash may be caused by a range of different events.  A common one is the car accident, but this isn’t the only way; you can also get it through slipping and falling, or from receiving a blow to the head during a game of sports.

All that is needed is sudden impact.  This causes the head to jerk, which puts strain on the ligaments and tendons within the neck.

The symptoms are pain, tenderness, and stiffness.  Some people find that they have headaches, or perhaps nausea and dizziness.

Recovery is relatively swift, with most cases clearing up within a matter of weeks, and a little more than painkillers and rest are required.

A whiplash injury in New Romney can still cause problems

Even though, as injuries go, whiplash is perhaps one of the less serious ones, it can nevertheless disrupt your life.  You may need to take time off work, which could for cause you to lose income.

Compounding your financial worries could be the need to pay for services to help you keep everything in your household ticking over.  You could need a home help, for example, or a childminder; you may also need to pay for prescriptions, and public transport fares.

Making a claim for compensation

If you make a claim for compensation, you could be awarded a sum of money to help you take care of these losses and expenses.

You are probably eligible to claim if your whiplash injury in New Romney happened as result of someone else’s actions or negligence.  If your claim is successfully settled, the money you receive will consist of an element for the injury itself, and an element for the reimbursement of your expenses.  For this reason, it is advisable to collect all your receipts.
