What do you know about whiplash? Many people think they know a lot about it, but there is a great deal of misinformation out there.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we want to make sure that you get the facts about whiplash. If you suffer a whiplash injury in Peel, you could be eligible for compensation, and we can help you to receive a payout.
First of all, what is whiplash?
The basic facts about whiplash are detailed below.
The symptoms usually include pain, stiffness, and tenderness in the neck, which make it difficult to move your neck. You may also have nausea, dizziness, and headaches.
Diagnosis is usually made when you go to the doctor with the above symptoms; no complex techniques are required to determine that you have the injury.
Treatment usually consists of nothing more than rest and painkillers, and recovery is usually complete within a few weeks. Some cases may last longer, but the majority of whiplash injuries are over fairly soon.
What you need to know about claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Peel
A claim for whiplash can be made in cases in which the accident that caused the injury was someone else’s fault. We understand that not all situations may be clear-cut, so to help you we have devised a test, which is available on our website for you to use.
This is the 30-second test, and all you need to do is input a few details about your whiplash injury in Peel to find out whether you are eligible to claim!
You should know that you are not guaranteed to win your case. Unfortunately, not all cases are successful, but if yours isn’t then you will be pleased to know that all our solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline work on a no win no fee basis.
You will probably not need to go to court to pursue your claim, as most cases can be handled entirely on your behalf by your solicitor.
What happens if your case is successful
If you win your case, you will receive a payout for your whiplash injury in Peel. This payout will include an element for the reimbursement of expenses that have been incurred as a result of your accident and injury, so make sure you keep hold of any receipts for the services of home helps or childminders, and retain taxi receipts and bus tickets, too.
In fact, it is a good idea to keep a file dedicated to your claim for whiplash injury in Peel. You can keep all your records of medical treatment in here, as well as any correspondence with insurance companies and other agencies involved.
