Have you sustained a whiplash injury in Piccadilly? If so, you could be entitled to claim compensation – and at Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you!
How can you get whiplash?
Whiplash is the kind of injury that everyone seems to know a little bit about, but as the old saying goes, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!
You see, many people think that it happens in car accidents. They’re right to think that, because it certainly does – but that’s not the only way. There are, in fact, myriad ways to get whiplash. You can get it from falling off your bike, or falling off a horse; you can get it in rail or air accidents.
Getting a whiplash injury in Piccadilly may not be transport-related, either. You could receive a blow to the head, perhaps in unfortunate circumstances (such as an attack) or in more enjoyable circumstances (a sports game).
All that is needed is sudden impact that causes the head to jerk. This puts strain on the neck’s tendons and ligaments. That is whiplash.
What are the symptoms of a whiplash injury in Piccadilly?
Pain is usually the first thing that people are aware of, and it may not be until the day after the accident when it becomes noticed.
In addition to pain, there may be some stiffness and tenderness, and the accident victim may experience some difficulty in moving their neck.
How can a compensation claim be made – and why claim?
Let’s answer the “why” bit first. You are usually eligible to claim if your accident happened as a result of someone else’s deliberate or negligent behaviour. Since it was someone else’s fault that you got the injury, why suffer?
And suffer, you might well. Think of having to take time off work, thereby risking loss of income. Think about having to take buses and taxis, or hire a home help, thereby incurring expenses – all because someone did something, or failed to do something, and you ended up with a whiplash injury in Piccadilly. Our view is: why not claim?
As to how you can claim, it’s a lot easier than you might think. All you need to do, to get started, is call Accident Advice Helpline!
