How to claim for whiplash injury in Prestwich
The question of how injuries such as whiplash is something that almost always seems to stir debate. Recent figures showing that the number of claims for road traffic accidents were rising despite the number of actual accidents sliding a little appeared to show that people were becoming a little more aggressive when it comes to claiming. However, the reality is very different, so if you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Prestwich, here are some of the things you need to know which could make it easier for you to claim.
Are we claiming too much?
Although the number of claims appears to be rising other statistics show that there are many accidents which are not being claimed for because the victim mistakenly thinks that they do not qualify for compensation. Whiplash is the kind of injury which, although painful, is not commonly thought of as being a major concern. As such many people choose to soldier on regardless and put up with the pain. That can be a mistake because although the injuries may be a long way from life threatening, they can still have a serious impact on your quality of life. For example, imagine you’re forced off work. While some workplaces can be quite generous in the amount of sick pay they provide others can be a little more Scrooge-like. If you work for someone who refused to provide any sick pay whatsoever, then you can quickly find yourself getting into severe financial trouble.
