    Whiplash Injury in Pembroke

    How do whiplash injuries happen? What are the symptoms of whiplash? What should you do if you suffer a whiplash injury in Pembroke?

    These are all questions that, fortunately, a lot of people never have to ask. But if you do end up suffering from a whiplash injury, there are some things that you will definitely need to know.

    How whiplash happens

    All that is needed for a whiplash injury in Pembroke to happen is sudden impact. This can happen in a car accident, and this is probably the situation with which most people associate whiplash.

    But it can also happen in a game of sports, or in a slip or fall incident. The sudden impact causes the head to jerk, which puts strain on the ligaments and tendons in the neck. That’s what causes whiplash.

    The symptoms of whiplash

    Whiplash is recognisable by its symptoms, which include pain, stiffness, and tenderness in the neck. These aren’t the only symptoms, though: some people experience dizziness, nauseas, and headaches, too.

    For most people, a sure sign of a whiplash injury in Pembroke is their inability to move their neck as they normally would. This may not happen until a few hours after the accident, or perhaps even the following day.

    What you should do about your whiplash injury in Pembroke

    Your first priority should be to go to your GP. You probably won’t be there for too long, because diagnosis of a whiplash injury is simple and straightforward.

    Recovery is also simple, and usually quick. Get some rest and take pain medication as directed for a few weeks, and you will be fully recovered. That’s what happens in most cases of whiplash injury in Pembroke.

    Call Accident Advice Helpline and make a claim

    During your recovery, you should think about claiming compensation, because you will likely have experienced great disruption to your life as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence. You could experience financial trouble, too.

    Many people find that they lose earnings through being off work for a while, and on top of this they are paying for the services of a home help or childminder, taxi fares, prescriptions — potentially a whole raft of different things they never thought they would need.

    If this happens to you, get on the phone and dial 0800 689 0500 to speak to an advisor at Accident Advice Helpline. That’s our number for landline users to call; if you prefer to use a mobile, you can dial 0333 500 0993, or text “claim365” to 88010.

    Your advisor will guide you through the process of claiming, and if you qualify for compensation they will pass your details to one of our team of no win no fee solicitors. They will fight on your behalf to gain you a payout for your injury, and for the reimbursement of any expenses incurred as a result of it.
