No win no fee Canvey Island – whiplash injuries
There are many ways to sustain a whiplash injury but the way most people assume it has happened is in a rear end shunt with two cars. This is not the only way it occurs though and it is not e new injury that only appeared with the invention of cars. Some of the other ways you could sustain a whiplash injury are:
- Playing contact sports such as boxing or ruby
- Knocking you head in a slip, strip or fall
- Having something heavy or solid hit your head
In fact, anything that causes you head to suddenly jolt out of its normal movement area can damage the muscles, tendons and ligaments in your neck, and that is what a whiplash injury is. If this should happen to you through the fault of someone else, no win no fee Canvey Island solicitors can help you to claim the compensation you are legally entitled to.
Whiplash symptoms and treatment
The symptoms of whiplash often do not show themselves until a few hours after the accident, but when they do they can be quite severe and can include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Back pain and stiffness
- Pains or pins and needles in arms and legs
- Numbness in the limbs
- Dizziness and blurred vision
- Ringing in your ears
- Jaw pain
The problems you experience will depend on the severity of the injury and the main treatment is rest to let the neck recover. Painkillers and icepacks can help and in extreme cases a neck brace or physiotherapy may be used.
The amount you are awarded for your injury will depend on how bad it is and the impact it has on your life. Mild whiplash will heal in just a few weeks, whereas chronic whiplash can be permanent and life changing. No win no fee Canvey Island solicitors will account for this when making your personal injury claim as well as recouping any out of pocket expenses such as:
- Loss of earnings
- Childcare costs
- Medical expenses
- Travel expenses
- Care and assistance expenses
- Any other cost or loss that is a result of the accident
