How to get an estimate for your claim with a whiplash settlements calculator
Whiplash is a term used to describe the head being suddenly thrown forwards, backwards or sideways. One of the most common causes is the road traffic accident. The sudden violent movement causes damage to the ligaments and tendons in the neck. The ligaments are the fibrous connective tissues which link 2 bones together at a joint. The tendons are tough fibrous bands that connect muscle to bone. So if these parts of the neck are damaged they can cause an enormous amount of pain. If you’ve been in a car accident and your head was violently flung about and then you start to get neck pain and stiffness, tenderness over the neck muscles, headaches and you have trouble moving your neck, you might have whiplash. You should seek medical attention.
A compensation provider
Once you have been examined, you may consider looking at compensation for your whiplash and an ideal way to start is by consulting a whiplash settlements calculator to give you an idea of the level of compensation you might be looking at. The best way to do this is to telephone Accident Advice Helpline. It is a compensation provider for personal injury compensation.
