There are various ways in which you can sustain a whiplash injury in St Pierre du Bois – and a lot of people won’t be familiar with them!
Most whiplash injuries are caused by car accidents, which is hardly surprising. A lot of people drive cars, and it’s all too easy to experience a jerky movement in a car, especially when another driver runs into your car.
Sudden impact: at the root of all whiplash injuries
But it’s the sudden impact that happens in a car accident, rather than anything special about the situation itself, that actually causes the whiplash injury in St Pierre du Bois.
Other situations in which sudden impact is experienced include:
- Horse riding accidents
- Windsurfing accidents
- Slips and falls
- Biking accidents
That’s not all, either. Perhaps you got your whiplash injury a different way? Whatever the case, if the accident that led to it was caused by someone else, then you could claim compensation.
Claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in St Pierre du Bois
When you get whiplash, the pain, stiffness and tenderness that characterise it are normally felt several hours after the accident – sometimes, it can even take a couple of days or so before the symptoms show.
Once you’ve got yourself checked out by your GP, you should consider making a claim. Yes, whiplash injury in St Pierre du Bois may not be one of the most serious things that could happen, and recovery may take just a few weeks – but you could find yourself in some financial trouble.
Many people need to hire a home help when they are recovering, because they cannot cope with all their usual chores. They might also need to hire a childminder, or take taxis and buses to get out and about.
In addition to this, they may lose wages if they have to take time off work. All of this wouldn’t have happened if someone else hadn’t caused you to get whiplash – so why not claim?
