    Whiplash injury in Newent

    The Forest of Dean is a popular and beautiful part of Gloucestershire. You’ll find many charming towns and villages in this area, and Newent happens to be one of them. It’s a market town with around 5,200 residents, and lies to the north of the region. Thankfully, few visitors to the area ever leave with a whiplash injury in Newent, mainly due to taking appropriate care on the roads when visiting.

    Of course, every driver must accept that while they may be careful on the roads, they can never know whether others will be as careful when they are out and about driving around. If someone is inattentive, perhaps because they are looking at their mobile phone and not the road ahead, they could easily veer into your side of the road and hit your car head-on.

    The experience of suffering whiplash

    Any impact in a car accident is likely to be quick and offer little notice or opportunity for you to do anything much to avoid it. Even if you steer clear of the offending driver you may crash through doing so. Whiplash may occur if you come to a sudden and complete stop and your head is jerked violently forwards or sideways as a result.

    You’re likely to feel some pain in your neck initially, but this could well subside as you come to terms with the moments after the accident and take stock. This is why many people think they may have got away without having whiplash, because the initial pain tends to go – only to return later. The symptoms people have the following day are usually much worse than they were immediately after the accident.

    How easy is it to find out if you have a chance to claim?

    It’s actually much easier than you’d at first believe. For starters, you have a chance to see whether you could make a no win, no fee claim by calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500. We’re happy to explain how this kind of claim works, and how you might benefit from making one.
