Have you ever suffered whiplash? If so, we certainly don’t need to tell you about the pain, stiffness and tenderness – you will know only too well just what an effect it has on your life!
However, you may not be aware that, if your whiplash injury in Otterham occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence or deliberate behaviour, you could make a claim for compensation.
How might a whiplash injury in Otterham be caused by someone else?
There are myriad ways in which whiplash could be caused by someone else. Whiplash occurs when the head is jerked as a result of sudden impact; this jerking motion puts strain on the tendons and ligaments within the neck.
Perhaps the most common example is that of a car accident. If someone drives into you from behind, for example, whilst you are traffic lights, then it is likely to be their fault that the accident happens.
In such a case, you could be eligible to claim compensation for your whiplash injury in Otterham, and you can find out quickly about this with the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test. This is available on our website and will tell you just how much compensation you could be able to obtain.
