If you are involved in an accident that has been caused by someone else, you could be at risk of injury. Different accidents can lead to different injuries, and when it comes to car accidents whiplash is perhaps the first injury that springs to most people’s minds.
It’s a pretty good guess, because a whiplash injury in Parkgate is indeed often caused by a road accident, but it can also be sustained in other ways, such as in slip and fall accidents or games of contact sports.
Did you know that you could claim compensation if you suffer whiplash?
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury to the ligaments and tendons in the neck, which are put under strain when sudden impact causes the head to jerk.
Unsurprisingly, whiplash is painful. If you suffer whiplash, you will feel tenderness and stiffness, and experience difficulty moving your neck. You may also feel dizzy, have nausea, and get headaches.
Most cases of whiplash injury in Parkgate clear up within a matter of weeks, and require no more than painkillers and rest for full recovery.
If recovery is so speedy, why should you need to claim compensation for your whiplash injury?
That’s a good question. Although you may heal quickly, you could need to take some time off work, and if you are absent from work for even just a couple of weeks it could affect your income.
On top of this blow to your bank balance, you could need to pay for services that you might not normally need, for example a home help to do your household chores, a childminder to help you out with the kids, and buses or taxis so that you can get out and about while you can’t drive.
