If you are experiencing pain, stiffness and tenderness in your neck, then you could be suffering from a whiplash injury in Ossett – and the problems could go beyond these symptoms and affect your bank balance.
But if you make a compensation claim, you could receive a payout. Read on to find out more!
What is whiplash?
The symptoms of whiplash injury described above refer to the neck, so it is clear that it is a neck injury. It is caused by a sudden impact to the head, which jerks and then puts strain on the neck’s tendons and ligaments.
Fortunately, diagnosis and recovery are relatively simple and straightforward. No complex tests are required for a doctor to detect a whiplash injury in Ossett, and recovery usually requires no more than a few weeks of rest, aided by painkillers where appropriate.
Why might a whiplash injury in Ossett cause further problems?
Even though recovery is straightforward, you may need to take time off work, which could leave you at risk of losing income.
As well as reduced wages, you might also be battling with expenses for services you wouldn’t ordinarily require. Many people find that they need a home help or childminder while they recover, as well as taxis and buses, and prescriptions.
Once you consider these expenses and losses, it is easy to see how financial problems can occur when you are suffering from an injury.
What to do about it
Fortunately, there is a way for the victims of accidents that weren’t their fault to claw back their expenses, and that is to claim compensation.
If you put in a claim and it is settled successfully, you will be awarded a payout that will enable you to deal with the expenditure, and get your life back on track again.
