Whiplash settlement

0

Have you had a car crash and are looking for a whiplash settlement?

Whiplash is a rather graphic description of a painful neck injury. It’s a common injury in a car crash especially if you’re shunted from the rear. You can suffer a whiplash in any situation where you might receive a sudden jolt to your neck, for example, on a fairground ride.

If you’ve ever been on a bus with an inconsiderate driver then you might have an idea of how uncomfortable a whiplash injury can be. In these circumstances, even if the driver had to brake suddenly, you might have a case for claiming compensation.

How do you know if you’ve had a whiplash injury

Well you might not be aware of the injury for a day or two. Your neck might ache a little at first but become stiffer as the hours pass. You may feel pain throughout your body as your muscles go into spasm. Whiplash isn’t always confined to the neck.

Turning your head in any direction may become impossible and this makes life very difficult. You won’t be able to drive and you probably won’t be able to go to work. It’s very painful but the good news is that most people recover from a whiplash injury with time.

It’s important to get medical advice. Gentle physiotherapy can help as can hot and cold compresses and electrical stimulation devices called TENS machines. You can buy these in your local pharmacy or you may be loaned one by your doctors surgery.

How do you get a whiplash settlement?

You’re unlikely to be successful in claiming compensation for a whiplash on a fairground ride. The rides are designed to jolt and lurch. It’s supposed to be fun!

You may have some difficulty claiming compensation for a bus ride whiplash. It’s worth a try and witnesses, including other victims on the same bus, might help.

Whiplash from a car crash is easier to establish because someone will have been clearly to blame for the accident.
