About whiplash injury in Stoke Canon
Whiplash is usually not experienced immediately after a car accident. Often, it takes several hours for it to become apparent. You may feel tenderness and stiffness in your neck when you wake up the following morning and, of course, some pain.
It is a good idea to get checked out by your GP, who will probably be able to diagnose whiplash without the need for any complex tests or scans. They will probably prescribe rest and painkillers for treatment. Thankfully, whiplash usually clears up on its own after a few weeks.
Sometimes, a whiplash injury in Stoke Canon can cause pain that lasts for a long time, maybe even six months or more.
In such cases, the injury interferes with your ability to carry out your daily activities, such as going to work, going on family outings, doing household chores and so on. It might also cause anxiety or depression.
Accident Advice Helpline can help you
Whether your whiplash is normal or chronic, claiming compensation is something that definitely worth considering. Even taking a couple of weeks to recover could mean time off work, which could affect your income. Even a short period of using a home help, hiring taxis and paying for prescriptions can take a large chunk out of your bank balance.
If successful with your claim, a compensation payment will cover all these costs and losses, and help you to get your life back on track after your whiplash injury.
