Accidents that are caused by someone else may lead to injuries. One such injury, which is commonly known, is whiplash. Often associated with car accidents, a whiplash injury in Stoke Newington can be painful, as well as a possible financial burden.
To find out what to do if your finances, and other aspects of your life, are affected by your whiplash, see our step by step guide below!
Whiplash injury in Stoke Newington: the facts
First of all, whilst a whiplash injury may be caused by a car accident, this need not necessarily be the case. Any sudden impact to the head may cause the neck’s tendons and ligaments to be put under strain, so whiplash may also be the result of a slip and fall, for example, or a blow to the head.
Secondly, a whiplash injury often has a relatively quick recovery period. But some cases can drag on for several months, and when this is the case, the likelihood of other complications such as anxiety and depression increases.
Whether your whiplash injury in Stoke Newington is relatively simple or chronic, you could need some time off work to recover, and you will certainly need to rest for a while. It is during your recovery that you could find your money stretched.
Being off work means that you could lose your income, and being unable to perform your usual tasks means that you could need to hire services, such as those of a home help or childminder. You may also need to pay for prescriptions, as well as public transport fares because you cannot drive.
All of these losses and expenses mount up, which could cause you some worry, and that is the last thing you need when you are trying to recover from a whiplash injury in Stoke Newington.
