Whiplash injuries explained
Whiplash injuries are caused when your neck is suddenly snapped forwards or backwards and the tendons and ligaments have been stretched too far. Here we explain the effects and symptoms of whiplash injuries.
The most common causes of whiplash injuries are car accidents, when another vehicle hits your car from behind. But there are also other accidents that can lead to a whiplash injury such as sports injuries, trips and falls or being on a roller coaster.
What can I claim for?
If you’ve experienced a whiplash injury, you can claim compensation for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of earnings
- Chiropractic treatment
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
The first symptoms usually appear a few hours after an incident and may begin with a headache, and feelings of stiffness and even a burning sensation in the rear of the neck. These symptoms may prevent you from turning your head from side to side, and may even spread to your arms and shoulders.
How much can I claim for a whiplash injury injury?
Obviously, the level of compensation you can claim depends on the seriousness of your injuries. If your accident was caused due to someone else’s negligence, your claim for pain and suffering could be worth several thousands of pounds.
