Whiplash injury in Paddington


Home to a busy rail and London Underground (Tube) station, the central London district of Paddington is an area in which a lot of things happen – including accidents!

If you are in an accident and you suffer a whiplash injury in Paddington, you could be eligible to claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline, with the assistance of our team of no-win, no-fee* solicitors.

How a whiplash injury in Paddington might occur

Whiplash can happen in any situation in which there is sudden impact. This impact causes the head to jerk, which in turn puts strain on the neck’s tendons and ligaments.

Please note that it’s not necessarily a car accident that causes whiplash! Many people are unaware that, for example, a slip and fall, or a blow to the head, might cause whiplash.

The characteristics of whiplash

Later – perhaps hours or even a day or so – the symptoms will become apparent: pain, tenderness, and stiffness. There could also be dizziness, headaches, and nausea.

It is a good idea to see the doctor as soon as possible. You won’t need any extensive tests or complex investigations to determine whether you have suffered a whiplash injury in Paddington – the doctor should be able to make the diagnosis on the basis of the symptoms you show.

Recovery is also simple. It usually involves nothing more than adequate rest and painkillers taken as directed by your GP – and best of all, most cases of whiplash clear up within a few weeks.

Why you might need to claim compensation

One thing that isn’t so simple about getting whiplash injury in Paddington is the effect it has on your everyday life. All your usual routines are thrown up into the air as you try to recover. You could need to hire a home help or childminder to ensure everything in the household runs smoothly; driving is probably out of the question, so you could need buses or taxis.

All of these things cost money, and money might be in shorter supply than usual if you have to take time off work and you lose wages as a result.

Claiming compensation could mean that you are able to claw back this money you have lost.
