    Whiplash Injury in Pocklington

    Did you know that you could get a whiplash injury in Pocklington as a result of an accident on your bike? Many people don’t realise this, and wouldn’t know what to do if it happened.

    The fact is, contrary to popular belief; whiplash doesn’t just happen in car accidents. It can happen in a variety of ways, including in a bike accident – and there doesn’t even have to be a car involved. Read on to find out more.

    Whiplash injury in Pocklington from a bike accident

    Consider this scenario. You may be cycling on a marked off-road track, or on a specially designated cycle path alongside or near a road, and suddenly, you hit a pothole and come off your bike.

    During the accident, because of the sudden impact, your neck’s tendons and ligaments have been put under strain as a result of your head jerking.

    You wake up the next morning to find that you cannot move your neck properly. It is painful, stiff and tender. You may also be experiencing dizziness or nausea.

    The doctor tells you, later on, that you have whiplash – and that you should get plenty of rest and take painkillers if required.

    Recovering from whiplash

    There is at least some good news, in that recovery from a whiplash injury in Pocklington is complete within just a few weeks, in the majority of cases.

    But even a relatively short recovery period such as this can cause you some inconvenience – and some financial trouble.

    You could need to take some time off work, which may leave you at risk of losing income. Even if you lose just a few days’ pay, things could get pretty tight.

    On top of this, you could find that you need to hire a home help to make sure your cleaning, cooking, and laundry are all done while you can’t tackle these tasks. Home helps cost money – as do childminders, taxis and other services that you might not normally need.

    Claim compensation and deal with these losses and expenses

    As soon as possible into your recovery, you should consider calling Accident Advice Helpline and starting a claim for your whiplash injury in Pocklington.

    We offer ‘no win, no fee’ service through a team of solicitors who will work on your behalf to settle your claim. They can usually deal with everything by phone, which means that you probably won’t have to go to court; all you will need to do is attend one additional medical assessment.
