Have you had a whiplash injury in Powys? If so, you might have considered claiming, but you could be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed – and not a little confused – by the plethora of information out there on what to do if you want to claim.
You are not alone
Confusion is rife, because, quite simply, there is a lot of information available on the internet about making a compensation claim, and not all of it is strictly accurate.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we take our duty as one of the largest law firms in the UK seriously, and make sure that we provide our clients with only the best advice and service. It’s in our interest to get it right, and it’s certainly in your interest – so read on!
What a whiplash injury in Powys is
Whiplash is an injury to the neck’s tendons and ligaments, which happens when sudden impact causes the head to jerk and pull on the neck. This often happens in a car accident, but it can happen in any situation in which there is sudden impact.
The symptoms are pain, stiffness, tenderness and difficulty in moving the neck, and it is these symptoms that your GP will use to make a diagnosis. There’s no need for any complex tests.
Recovery is usually brief, lasting just a few weeks – and all that is needed is adequate rest and pain medication taken as directed by your GP.
When you can claim for whiplash
You can claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Powys if the accident that caused the injury was someone else’s fault. If you want to check your eligibility to claim, you can take the Accident Advice Helpline 30 second test, which requires just a few details. It’s available on our website.
You should begin your claim for whiplash injury in Powys as soon as possible, because there is a three-year deadline from the date of your accident.
