Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Seagrave recently? If so, you could be wondering what to do about it. Don’t worry – this happens to many people!
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a lot of experience of dealing with claims for whiplash injury in Seagrave, so allow us to give you a few pointers.
First of all, how did it happen?
A lot of people think that whiplash happens in car accidents – and car accidents alone! That’s not true. Yes, it does happen in car accidents – in fact, it happens in other kinds of vehicle accident, too. But a whiplash injury in Seagrave can also happen in various other ways, for example:
- Falling off a bike or a horse
- Slipping and falling on a slippery surface
- Receiving a blow to the head
…and many other ways! All that’s needed is sudden impact, which causes the head to jerk and pull on the neck, damaging its tendons and ligaments. That’s whiplash.
Secondly, whose fault was it?
Sometimes, an accident will be just that: a genuine accident in which no one can be said to be at fault.
But often, an accident could have been prevented if someone had taken some measures, or it could have been caused by someone doing something deliberate.
In such cases, a claim could be made – and you could be awarded a sum of money to compensate you for the accident. You can check whether you qualify to claim by taking the Accident Advice Helpline 30 second test, which is available on our website.
Seek medical attention
As soon as you have been in an accident, get down to your GP and get checked over for injuries. In the case of whiplash, the symptoms may not show up until a few hours later, or until the next day. Just make sure you seek medical advice as soon as possible.
