Sustaining a whiplash injury in Portpatrick could mean that your everyday life undergoes some major changes for a while. But it needn’t be fraught with difficulty, because Accident Advice Helpline can help you to claim compensation.
Many whiplash injuries occur as the result of a car accident. If this happens to you, there are certain things that you will need to do so as to ensure that you have the best possible chance of getting the payout that you deserve.
After a car accident
You should first make sure that everyone is all right, yourself included! If anyone is injured, make sure they receive medical attention as soon as possible.
At the scene, it is important to gather the other driver’s contact details and the details of their insurance company. Get their name and address – and, while you’re at it, get contact details of any witnesses at the scene. Car accidents are often witnessed, and their account of what happened could be helpful to your case.
You should also take photographs. With your phone camera, you can capture the driving conditions at the time of the accident, as well as any damage to your vehicle.
The trouble with whiplash is that it usually takes a while for the symptoms to show. Many people find that they cannot move their neck properly the following morning, and that it is stiff and tender. You GP can diagnose a whiplash injury in Portpatrick, and give you the correct treatment.
