Have you been in an accident that was caused by someone else, and which resulted in a whiplash injury in Ower? If so, you could qualify to make a compensation claim. Read on to find out what to do…
But first, what is whiplash?
Whiplash is a neck injury. Specifically, it is an injury to the ligaments and tendons within the neck, which have been put under strain as a result of the head jerking. The head’s movement is caused by sudden impact, which often occurs because of a car accident – but may also happen in a slip and fall or if a blow to the head is experienced.
Symptoms and recovery
If you get a whiplash injury in Ower, you are likely to experience pain, stiffness and tenderness. These symptoms may not present themselves until hours after the accident, or possibly even the next day or so, and they may worsen as the days progress.
If this sounds grim, take comfort from the fact that most cases of whiplash injury in Ower get better within a matter of weeks. Recovery periods sometimes go beyond this, but the majority of cases are recovered from within a few weeks, and require little more than rest and painkillers.
Claiming compensation for your whiplash injury in Ower
Even though your recovery period is relatively short, the injury can cause great disruption to your usual routines – and your finances.
You may need to hire the services of a home help or a childminder in order to manage your household tasks; you could also need to use taxis or buses whilst being unable to drive.
Such things, of course, cost money – which may be in shorter supply than usual if you also have to take time off work during your suffering.
But if you make a claim, you could be awarded a sum of money that will help you to take care of these expenses and losses.

First of all, you can use Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test, which is a simple tool available on our website. This will tell you whether you qualify to claim compensation; all you need to do is input a few details.
