Suffering an injury is never a good thing, and it’s especially disheartening when the injury has been caused by someone else – whether it’s through their deliberate actions or because they behaved negligently.
That’s right – an accident is not always an “accident”
True accidents, of course, do happen. These cannot be avoided – it really is just a case of bad luck when something like that occurs.
But often, an accident may be caused by someone else, and lead to whiplash injury in Stadhampton. There is bad luck involved for you, but it could have been avoided. Here are a couple of examples:
- Someone bumps into your car while you are sitting at traffic lights, thus causing you to sustain whiplash
- You slip on a polished floor and fall down – it is a floor you often walk on, and there is normally a sign to warn people if it has recently been polished
In the two examples above, whiplash injury in Stadhampton could have been avoided. In the first example, the driver in the car behind you could have paid attention to the fact that the traffic lights hadn’t turned green yet, and that you were in front.
In the second example, a sign could and should have been put up to warn people that the floor was slippery. How were you supposed to know – especially if you walk that way all the time and never encounter any problems?
Claim compensation for your whiplash injury in Stadhampton
If you do get a whiplash injury in Stadhampton in circumstances such as those above – or, in fact, in any way at all because of someone else’s actions or negligence – then you should call Accident Advice Helpline as soon into your recovery period as possible.
While you recover from whiplash, you might find that you lose money through being off work. Even though you probably won’t need more than a few days off, to get over the worst of the injury’s symptoms, you could still lose wages to the extent that it makes a significant difference to your bank balance.
Also, you might need to hire a childminder or home help, and take public transport so you can get out and about while you can’t drive. Expenses above those you normally have can really hurt your wallet.
