Do you know how whiplash is caused? If your immediate response to this question is, “in a car accident.” Then you are right…to a point.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been dealing with claims for whiplash injury in Speke for 14 years, and we’ve gained a considerable amount of knowledge about it. Let us give you a bit of information about the condition.
So, how is it caused, then?
Basically, any situation that involves sudden impact can cause whiplash. That means that you certainly can get it in a car accident – in fact, that is the most likely way in which you might suffer a Speke whiplash injury.
But it can also happen when you fall off your bike (or off a horse), in a sporting accident (e.g. in football or a water sport, such as surfing), or if you receive a blow to the head (e.g. in boxing). Slips and falls can also cause whiplash.
It sounds like I’d better be careful out there…
Well, yes, it’s always good to be careful. But it would be unnecessary to be over-cautious about whiplash. You don’t want to curtail your activities, after all.
Be vigilant, by all means, but sometimes, there is simply no way that you can avoid getting into an accident that causes you to sustain a whiplash injury in Speke. This might be a genuine no-fault accident, or it might be an accident in which someone else has done something to cause it, or failed to do something to prevent it.
What can I do if someone causes me to get a whiplash injury in Speke?
In cases where it’s someone’s fault that you got injured, you can call Accident Advice Helpline and get started with a compensation claim.
An advisor will take your details, and if you do qualify to claim, these details will be passed to one of our team of solicitors. If you win your case, you will receive a payout, which will help you to get things back to normal again after your accident.
What does the payout consist of?
Compensation payments are made up of an element for the whiplash injury in Speke itself, plus an element for any expenses related to the injury. These may be payments to a home help or a childminder, taxi and bus fares, prescription charges, etc. Make sure you keep hold of your receipts.
