    Whiplash Injury in Pluckley

    Did you know that you can sustain whiplash in a variety of ways? Bike accidents, water sports (and other sports) accidents, and slips and falls can cause it, but perhaps the best known way of getting a whiplash injury in Pluckley is as a result of a car accident.

    But would you know what to do if you had a car accident? Below are some hints and tips on what to do if you are unfortunate enough to experience one.

    Top Tips: At the Scene

    First of all, make sure you and your passengers are all right! If anyone’s injured, call the police – and, of course, an ambulance, if required.

    Secondly, exchange your personal information with the other driver. You will need their name, address and insurance details. Their contact number is also useful.

    Thirdly, make sure you take photographs of the damage to your vehicle and any property. Later on, take some photographs of any injuries you may have.

    A whiplash injury in Pluckley may not show up on camera, of course – in fact, the symptoms may not show up for a few hours.

    The Day After your Car Accident

    You could wake up with a sore and stiff neck, which is tender and difficult to move; this is the first indication for a lot of people that something isn’t quite right. If this happens to you:

    Firstly, go to your GP to get your injury checked out. Your doctor will probably be able to diagnose whiplash very quickly, with no need for any complex tests.

    Secondly, begin your recovery. Your doctor will tell you how best to recover, but it will very likely involve getting some rest and taking painkillers. Despite what you may have heard from people, and seen in TV dramas, wearing a neck brace is not usually advised!

    Thirdly, get on the phone to Accident Advice Helpline and make a compensation claim.

    Why you Should Consider Claiming for your Whiplash Injury in Pluckley

    If you have sustained whiplash as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you could be eligible to claim – and why not go ahead? After all, it’s because of someone’s actions or negligence that you were hurt.

    The problems can go beyond the pain and discomfort, though – a whiplash injury in Pluckley can affect your finances, too. Taking time off work can mean losing wages; inability to do your usual chores can mean needing to hire a home help, and you will have to pay for their services.

    If you claim and your case is successfully settled, you will be awarded a sum of money to take care of all this, so why not get on the phone to Accident Advice Helpline now?
