A whiplash injury in Shepperton may not necessarily be caused by a vehicle collision – it can happen in slips and falls, or in sports such as boxing or football. You can even get whiplash from falling off a bike.
Common to all the above incidents is one factor: sudden impact. It is this that causes whiplash. But how is the impact itself caused?
Accidents: not always bad luck
Sometimes, accidents are accidents – or, at least, what we know accidents to be. To most of us, that means an unfortunate event that couldn’t have been predicted and which may cause damage or injury. We pick ourselves up and get on with things, putting it down to experience.
But other accidents could certainly be prevented, or worse, are caused by someone’s deliberate actions. In such cases, someone is at fault. There is blame to be apportioned, and if you get a whiplash injury in Shepperton that has been caused by someone else, you could make a claim for compensation.
It makes sense to claim for whiplash injury in Shepperton
When you’re recovering from whiplash, you might need to take some time off work. Depending on your type of employment and the arrangement or contract you have, this could result in a loss of earnings. Even the loss of a day’s pay can make a big difference to you, especially if you have a family.
While you lose income, you might also be paying out extra money. You wouldn’t normally need a home help or child-minder, but you’re having to hire one to help you get through this difficult period.
Reduced income plus increased expenditure adds up to potential disaster, but if you claim compensation and your case is successfully settled, the payout you receive will enable you to claw back this money and get on with your life again!
