    Whiplash injury in Newton


    If you find the place name Newton familiar, you could actually be living or working in one of many places in the UK. There are places called Newton in Herefordshire, Derbyshire, South Yorkshire, Shropshire, South Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Lancaster, Nottinghamshire, Norfolk…you get the idea! And those locations are only some of the ones in England alone. Wales and Scotland also have place names with Newton forming part or all of the name. Suffice to say, someone talking about a whiplash injury in Newton could be talking about an accident that happened in one of many locations across the nation.

    But while this is a common affliction to have following a car accident, you may not realise how it could affect your daily life if you happen to be unlucky enough to be affected by it. A lot would depend on how bad the whiplash was, as some cases are worse than others.

    Lack of movement

    One of the things you can expect to feel when you suffer from whiplash is a stiffness in your neck. It will hurt to move it, although you should make sure you do move it when you can. Not doing so can make the stiffness worse and it can actually take longer for the injury to heal if you keep it completely immobile.

    Most of us just don’t notice how much we move our heads during the day though. Anyone looking to cross a road safely will need to look both ways to do so, for example. The same applies to anyone driving or using another vehicle on the roads. As such, if you are reliant on your car, you may find you’re not safe to drive for a while after your accident.

    Does this mean you could get compensation?

    If another party can be proven to have been negligent in making the accident happen, then yes, there is a good chance you could be awarded compensation. The one sure way to find out is to contact a no win, no fee solicitor who works on this basis. Accident Advice Helpline makes this easier for you, as we have a free enquiry line you can use to get in contact with us. We’ll then assess the likelihood of making a claim.
