Anyone who has suffered a whiplash injury in Sherington will know how painful it can be – and how much of a disruption it is for several weeks after the accident that caused it.
Happily, it takes no longer than a few weeks to make a recovery in most cases but, during this time, you could be in a significant amount of pain.
Pain isn’t the only problem
Of course, pain isn’t the only thing that whiplash causes – you will also have stiffness and tenderness in the neck, because the ligaments and tendons became damaged as a result of the head jerking upon the sudden impact that occurred in the accident.
Many people who have a whiplash injury also find that they end up with a few financial troubles on top of the discomfort and inconvenience.
Why does whiplash injury in Sherington cause financial trouble?
It’s a pretty simple equation, but not one that people think about until they suffer from an injury.
Your income could be reduced if you have to take time off work. Yes, we know that a lot of people have sick pay and that their income will be guaranteed for the duration of their recovery period – which, for whiplash, is a few weeks. However, we also know that a lot of people have no such safety net. Even the loss of a day’s pay can make a huge difference.
Your outgoings might increase while you recover from whiplash, too. That’s because you might hire home help to take care of your household chores, or a child-minder to take your kids to school and bring them back home. Perhaps you need to take taxis to run errands and get things delivered because you cannot pick them up.
