A whiplash injury can happen anywhere – even a small coastal village such as Southerness! Don’t be unprepared in the event it happens to you. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a few pointers for you on what to do if you get a whiplash injury in Southerness, so read on.
Your health first
The most important thing is that your health doesn’t suffer too much. Of course, if you have sustained a whiplash injury in Southerness, you are going to suffer a bit – you’ll certainly experience pain, stiffness, and tenderness in your neck, and quite possibly headaches, nausea, and dizziness, too.
But you should go to your doctor as soon as possible to make sure that you get your injury diagnosed, and if there’s anything else that’s happened to you it’s a good idea to know about it, too. You might have sustained internal bleeding or a fracture, for example, in addition to whiplash.
After that, get some rest
Your doctor will tell you what’s best, of course, but the advice they give you will very likely be to get some rest, take the appropriate painkillers when you need them, and avoid anything strenuous which might exacerbate your injury.
While you recover, why not claim?
During your recovery, you might find that your bank balance isn’t as healthy as usual. For a start, you may need to take a few days off work, which could leave you with less money coming in.
In addition to this, you could end up being saddled with additional expenses, such as home help or childminding fees, prescription charges, and taxi or bus fares.
If you claim compensation and your case is settled successfully, you could receive a payout, which will be the end of any money worries related to your injury. You will also have a bit extra to help you along as you slowly get back to your usual way of life.
