Whiplash Injury in Oxford Circus


With perhaps more pedestrians walking across Oxford Circus – the intersection of Oxford Street and Regent Street in central London – than anywhere else in the capital, it’s clear that this bit of London might be somewhere you could experience an accident.

Much of this on-foot traffic is because of the Tube station, which is underneath the intersection, but there is plenty of shopping in the area – and plenty of traffic, too!

How might you suffer a whiplash injury in Oxford Circus?

If you are unfortunate enough to be in an accident in this area, you might end up suffering a whiplash injury in Oxford Circus – and it need not necessarily be sustained in a collision, either. Yes, this is perhaps the most common way of getting whiplash, but it can be caused by other means.

You might receive a blow to the head, for example, whilst you are finding your way out of the Tube station, which is almost constantly busy. Over 80 million journeys per year involve entry to, or exit from, this station!

You could also slip and fall, which could happen anywhere in the area. This, too, might cause whiplash. All that is needed for it to occur is sudden impact, which jerks the head and, in turn, places strain on the neck’s ligaments and tendons.

What to do if it happens to you

If you get a whiplash injury in Oxford Circus, the first thing you should do is take care of your health! Go to the doctor’s surgery and follow their advice, which will probably be to get some rest, not put any unnecessary strain on your neck, and take pain medication when needed.

The recovery period is usually no more than a few weeks, but during your recovery period, you should consider claiming compensation through Accident Advice Helpline. Why? Well, you might find yourself in need of some financial assistance.

Why you might have financial problems after suffering whiplash

Your whiplash injury in Oxford Circus could leave you in need of a home help to deal with the chores you can’t manage. You probably won’t be able to drive for a bit, so you might need to use taxis or buses to get around. Perhaps you will also need some prescription medication.

Finally, you might also lose wages because you need to take some time off work – so if this happens, you will have less money coming in to deal with all the extra that is going out as a result of your need to use the services described above.
