    Whiplash Injury in Shepherds Bush


    Don’t ignore the symptoms of a whiplash injury in Shepherds Bush – it’s important that you get to your doctor’s surgery as soon as possible. Also, don’t pass up the opportunity to claim for your injury, either – it could get you out of financial hardship!

    When can you claim for whiplash injury in Shepherds Bush?

    You can make a claim in cases where the accident that caused the whiplash injury was someone else’s fault. This means that someone did something deliberate to cause the accident or they failed to do something to prevent it. Some examples:

    • Someone drives into the back of your car while you’re waiting to make a turn
    • Someone assaults you and you receive a blow to the head
    • There is no sign to warn you that a floor has been polished and you slip and fall
    • There is no grit on an icy footpath in winter and you slip and fall

    In any of the above cases, you could put in a claim. If you want to check your eligibility, why not go to our website and take our 30 second test? This will tell you whether or not you qualify to claim.

    What are the symptoms of whiplash?

    After a whiplash injury in Shepherds Bush, you are likely to experience pain, stiffness and tenderness in your neck; you may also have a headache, or feel sick and dizzy.

    Go and see your GP. If it’s whiplash, they will be able to make a diagnosis easily and you won’t need to go for any complex tests.

    After that, during your recovery period, you will need to take things easy for a bit. You will probably be able to manage the pain with painkillers. Recovery is usually complete within a few weeks.

    Financial hardship as a result of whiplash

    During the recovery phase, you might need to take time off work, which could cause you to lose income. In addition to this, you might have to pay for home help to take care of your cleaning, laundry and cooking; you could also need to take public transport to get out and about, since you will not be able to drive with your injury.

    All of this adds up to financial trouble – and that’s where Accident Advice Helpline comes in!
