Whiplash, compared with other injuries that can be suffered in an accident caused by someone else, is relatively minor.
If you’ve recently experienced a whiplash injury in Owermoigne, you might disagree – but please take comfort from the fact that recovery is usually complete within a few weeks, and generally, all you need to do is rest and take pain medication as required.
As you recover, you might want to consider making a compensation claim.
Why claim compensation?
Despite its status as a fairly non-serious condition, a whiplash injury in Owermoigne, as you may well have discovered, can cause you some serious disruption. People suffering from such an injury may experience the following:
- Pain, stiffness and tenderness in the neck (the usual symptoms)
- Dizziness, headaches, and nausea (other symptoms associated with whiplash)
- Disruption to everyday routines – e.g. taking the children to school
- Needing to take time off work
Everyone is different, of course, so the degree of disruption varies from case to case. But there’s one aspect that affects almost everyone and that is financial difficulty.
How a whiplash injury in Owermoigne can cause money worries
Your difficulties in maintaining normal routines could lead you to seek the help of a childminder or home help, just to make sure you can keep the house clean and tidy, and that your children get to and from school safely. Such services cost money, of course, and the bills can mount up even if you need help for just a few weeks.
In addition to this, your need to be off work could lead to a reduction in your income, especially if you work for a company whose sick pay policy is not particularly generous, or you are self-employed.

Fortunately, you can claw back this cash and get your books back in balance once again, simply by claiming compensation through Accident Advice Helpline!
If you win your case, you will receive a sum of money in compensation for your injury, and part of this payout will be for reimbursement of expenses. Make sure you hang on to all your receipts for any services you have paid for that are related to your whiplash injury in Owermoigne.
