    Whiplash Injury in Otterburn

    What do you know about whiplash?  It’s a commonly known condition, but, as with many other well-known things, it can be difficult to separate fact from myth.

    Accident Advice Helpline’s guide to whiplash

    As one of the largest law firms in the UK, with 14 years’ experience of dealing with claims for whiplash injury in Otterburn, Accident Advice Helpline has its finger on the pulse when it comes to the best course of action if you get whiplash.

    The first thing you should do is seek medical attention.  Your health comes first, and you want to have the best possible chance of recovery, so go to the doctor as soon as you can!

    Secondly, get plenty of rest.  For a whiplash injury in Otterburn, rest is usually sufficient, along with a few painkillers as required, to ensure full recovery within a few weeks.

    Thirdly, consider making a claim for compensation.

    Why claim compensation for whiplash injury in Otterburn?

    Getting plenty of rest may involve taking time off work, and it is when you are off work that you are at risk of losing income.  Some employers have a generous sick pay policy, so you might be OK for a few weeks.  But even if you lose just a few days’ pay, you could have great difficulty making ends meet.

    Your ability to keep your head above water is further affected by paying for services that you might not normally need.  In order to maintain your household, you might need to pay for a home help or a childminder.  Since you can’t drive, you might be using buses and taxis.

    It’s clear to see that the costs mount up, even though you are out of action for probably just a few weeks.

    How claiming compensation can help

    If you pursue a claim and it is successfully settled, you will be awarded a payment of compensation.  This will be made up of an element for the injury itself, and an element for the reimbursement of any expenditure resulting from your whiplash injury in Otterburn.

    This will enable you to restore your bank balance, and get rid of your financial worries.
