If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Stonehouse, you know about it – especially the next morning when the stiffness, tenderness and pain usually become apparent.
Yes, it can often take several hours for the full effects of whiplash to become apparent, and they may worsen for a few days. It is best to go to the doctor as soon as possible, then get plenty of rest and begin your recovery.
The good news
Whiplash is a condition that, although painful, usually clears up by itself over the course of a few weeks. It can be diagnosed on its symptoms without the need for extensive tests, and its treatment is usually nothing more complex than rest and painkillers.
The bad news
Sometimes, a whiplash injury in Stonehouse can become chronic (i.e. it continues for several months), and if it is affecting your ability to live your life as usual then it can cause psychological complaints such as anxiety and depression, too.
Whether it takes a few weeks or a few months to clear up, whiplash can mean time off work and resulting financial trouble. This isn’t just because of loss of income as a result of being absent from work, but also because you may incur expenses while recovering.
Such expenses may include taxi or bus fares, home help fees, childminders’ fees and prescription charges, and this is by no means an exhaustive list!
Making a claim for a whiplash injury in Stonehouse
If you are finding it hard to cope with things after getting injured, you might consider making a compensation claim. If you win your case, you will be awarded a sum of money to compensate you for the accident and injury, and reimburse you for the expenses you have incurred.
It is a good idea to choose a reputable personal injury law firm when considering making a compensation claim, and Accident Advice Helpline are industry leaders.
