Your age can affect your susceptibility to injury. This is true of whiplash, too – if you are older, you could experience more severe whiplash compared with someone younger.
Whatever age you are, if you get in an accident and sustain a whiplash injury in Sheerness, you should seek medical advice as soon as possible – and consider making a claim for compensation through Accident Advice Helpline!
When you get older
You are not as physically robust as you once were. Your muscles are not as strong as they used to be, nor as flexible; your range of movement is not as large.
Today, of course, older people carry on working well into normal retirement age, and lead active lives. But if you are an older person and you suffer a whiplash injury in Sheerness in an accident that was caused by someone else, you could find that you take a bit longer to recover than you would if you were in your twenties or thirties.
Financial problems during your recovery period
When you are recovering from whiplash, you might need to take time off work. Even taking a few days off could cause you to lose money and this could make a big difference to your bank balance.
In addition to this, you might find that you need a home help, or you need to get your food delivered from the supermarket, or take public transport to get out and about because you cannot drive.
This adds up to a problem for a lot of people. However, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Simply get on the phone to Accident Advice Helpline.
