A lawyer who works for no win no fee* on Ticehurst cases is likely to have the same range of personal injury claims to deal with as many other personal injury lawyers. In fact lawyers working for a large law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline deal with car accidents more than any other accident. Why is this? Because there are more car accidents than other sorts of accidents!
The most common car accident injury is whiplash. We have all heard of whiplash but some of the following whiplash facts may come as a surprise to you.
Top 5 facts about claiming
FACT 1: Around one in every five people involved in a car crash suffer whiplash but did you know that you do not just get it from car accidents where you have been hit from behind. Lawyers working for no win no fee* on Ticehurst claims also deal with collisions from the side or the front. Any violent or sudden jolt of the head can result in whiplash – it gives you a painful and stiff neck, headaches and shooting pains and tingles in your arms and hands.
FACT 2: There are some other symptoms that you should NOT dismiss as merely whiplash. If you have lost consciousness, have blurred vision, severe neck spasms or have weakness in your arms and legs you must be taken to the nearest Accident and Emergency Department or see you doctor immediately to ensure that you do not have a more serious injury. Lawyers working for no win no fee* on Ticehurst claims deal with serious and minor injuries.
FACT 3: Most whiplash injuries are not serious as the damage does not extend to the bones, discs or nerves around the spine. Whiplash is a soft tissue injury which means that it affects muscles and ligaments. It is very rare to have permanent damage after whiplash.
Fact 4: If you have whiplash it is not a good idea to keep your neck still as it can make things worse. The recommended approach to recover from whiplash is to gently move the neck and take pain killers if it is safe for you to do so. There are also exercises that can help and a physiotherapist can advise on these.
Fact 5: You can make a claim for compensation for whiplash if you were injured in a car accident that was not your fault. If you would like to find a lawyer who works for no win no fee* on Ticehurst whiplash claims you should call Accident Advice Helpline to handle your claim for you.
