Getting a whiplash injury in Otley could mean big trouble – or, if you act quickly, a speedy recovery with stress kept to a minimum.
It’s obvious which outcome is better, but how would you go about ensuring your peace of mind, and your restoration of full health with no financial worries?
First, some information about whiplash
When we use the term “big trouble”, we are referring to the potential financial consequences of a whiplash injury in Otley. Medically, whiplash isn’t all that serious. Yes, you get stiffness and tenderness in your neck, which is difficult to move; you also experience some degree of pain.
But, unless there are complications, recovering from whiplash is usually simple and straightforward. The condition can be recovered from in a matter of weeks, and the remedy consists of no more than rest and painkillers.
When it comes to your finances, however, the story could be different.
Recovering from a whiplash injury in Otley could mean time off work
Following the accident that causes your whiplash injury, you may need to take some time off work. Even if you have a job that doesn’t involve a lot of physical work, it can still be difficult to function properly when you have whiplash.
Being absent from work, of course, could mean that you lose income. This makes it even more difficult to cope with the additional expenses that you might be experiencing.
Such expenses may be in the form of the fees for a home help or childminder, taxi or bus fares, and prescription charges. It’s amazing how everything mounts up during the recovery period, short though it may be.
Claim compensation and claw back your money
If you make a compensation claim through Accident Advice Helpline, you could be awarded a sum of money that will enable you to pay off these expenses and get back on track.
