    Whiplash Injury in Ottery St Mary


    Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Ottery St Mary during the last three years?  Was this injury caused by someone else?  If so, you could be eligible to claim compensation!

    Why would I need to claim compensation?

    This is a question asked by many people who suffer a whiplash injury in Ottery St Mary.  From our perspective at Accident Advice Helpline, we would ask: why not claim?

    When you are recovering from whiplash, the process may be relatively quick, especially compared with other conditions, and you will hopefully avoid any complex treatments. Should you have any persistent symptoms, however, such as migraine or problems with your vision or hearing, you should consult your doctor again.

    Nevertheless, you will still encounter major disruption to your everyday life, and with it, the prospect of financial hardship.

    You could need time off work if you have a whiplash injury in Ottery St Mary

    Whiplash injury involves damage to the tendons and ligaments within the neck, which are damaged as a result of sudden impact causing the head to jerk.

    The symptoms are not normally apparent until a few hours, at least, after the accident that caused it. These are pain, stiffness and tenderness in the neck – and possibly headaches and nausea, too.

    For a few weeks, you’ll find it difficult to carry out your normal functions.  You may need time off work, especially if you work in a job that demands a lot of physical activity.

    When you’re off work, you are at risk of losing money.  This loss is compounded by expenses for services that you may need in order to take care of your daily tasks.  For example, you might need a home help or a childminder; perhaps you will need buses and taxis to get around, because you cannot drive.

    Claw back your money by making a claim

    If you are recovering from a whiplash injury in Ottery St Mary and you are fed up of looking at your bank statements and fretting over them as you try to recover properly, why not pick up the phone and call Accident Advice Helpline?

    Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and speak to an advisor straight away.  Alternatively, if you would prefer that someone contact you instead, text “claim365” to 88010.
