Getting a whiplash injury in Polegate can often mean a lot of uncertainty, and this applies both to the incident that caused it and to what you should do about it afterwards.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we know about this uncertainty, because we have been dealing with claims for whiplash injury for 14 years. We want to get rid of as much uncertainty as possible, and the best way to do that is to give you some information about what to do!
Uncertainty About the Incident
Your whiplash injury in Polegate could have happened in one of many ways, and not necessarily as the result of a car accident! Horse riding, cycling, water sports, and slips and falls may all be the cause. Have you got whiplash as a result of any of these?
The best thing to do to is go to the doctor as soon as possible. They will be able to diagnose whiplash very easily and quickly, without the need to send you to hospital for complex tests.
Uncertainty About Whose Fault it Was
You now have the uncertainty about whether it is, in fact, a whiplash injury in Polegate – but there is still the question of whose fault it was.
Someone can be at fault not just through doing something deliberate, such as driving into the back of your car at traffic lights or punching you in the head in a mugging.
Fault can also occur through negligence. For example, if you fall as a result of slipping on an icy public path, it could be the local council’s fault. If they knew frost was expected and failed to grit the path, and left it in an unusable state (and failed to put warning signs there), it could be argued that they were at fault if you get injured.
Uncertainty About What to Do While you Recover From a Whiplash Injury in Polegate
If you have whiplash and it was someone else’s fault that you got it, then you could be feeling upset at the injustice of the situation you’re in as you recover.
You are unable to do the things you normally would, and you’ve even had to hire someone to take care of your household chores!
On top of this, you have had to take time off work because your neck is too painful even when you’re sitting at your desk and using your computer. This could lead you to lose money.
