How can you get a whiplash injury in St Peters? Many people think that it happens in car accidents – which, of course, it does. But there are other causes of whiplash. Read on to find out more about the condition, and what to do if you suffer an injury.
The root cause of a whiplash injury in St Peters
For whiplash to occur, there has to be one thing: sudden impact. It doesn’t matter how this sudden impact occurs; it just has to be present to cause whiplash.
Car accidents, of course, involve sudden impact – even minor car accidents, such as those where you are sitting at traffic lights and someone sets off a little too eagerly behind you.
But here are some other examples:
- Falling off a bike, maybe as a result of hitting a pothole
- Slipping and falling on a recently polished floor
- Falling while surfing, for example, if there are large waves
This is by no means an exhaustive list. There are countless other examples you could think of, we’re sure.
How much will you be awarded if you win your case?
In fact, that’s why it’s impossible to give an exact figure for compensation – every situation is different. Not every accident happens in the same way, or involves the same number of people or vehicles; some cases of whiplash injury in St Peters cause greater hardship than others; some people recover quicker than others.
You can get an estimate of your payout by going to our website and inputting some details into our free compensation calculator, though. While you’re there, why not check your eligibility by taking our 30 second test? Also, be sure to see our client testimonials, and the video featuring our patron, Esther Rantzen (of That’s Life fame)!
