Accident Advice Helpline is one of the largest law firms in the UK. Formed 14 years ago, it has built up a reputation for excellent client care – and as a result, claimants feel reassured that they are in safe hands when they choose the firm’s solicitors to take on their cases.
We’re happy to be in this position, and equally happy to be able to dispense useful advice about whiplash, which is a very common injury that occurs as the result of accidents that have been caused by someone else.
If you get into such an accident and suffer a whiplash injury in Sedgley, you need to know what to do. There’s no substitute for calling our 24/7 hotline, but here are a few pointers!
What sort of accident is it?
A whiplash injury in Sedgley can happen in a variety of accidents: car accidents, bike accidents, slips and falls, water sports accidents…the list is (almost) endless!
If it’s a car accident, make sure you exchange contact and insurance details with the other driver, and involve the police if necessary (certainly if there is any injury or property damage). If it’s a water sports accident, alert a lifeguard if needed.
Seek medical attention as soon as possible, no matter what kind of accident it is that caused your whiplash injury in Sedgley.
Your doctor will be able to diagnose whiplash on the presenting symptoms, which are usually pain, stiffness, tenderness and difficulty in moving the neck. Some people also experience dizziness, nausea and headaches.
You will probably be advised to get some rest and take pain medication as necessary. Basically, take it easy.
Claim compensation for your whiplash injury in Sedgley
While you are recovering, you could find that your finances take a hit. That’s because you might need to take time off work, and this, of course, could cause you to lose wages.
You may also need to hire a home help or a childminder, and take public transport to get to places that you would normally reach by car. This means that you could rack up expenses.
Additional expenditure and income loss are not a good combination, but you can do something about this: claim compensation!
