Accident whiplash claims
Whiplash injuries and compensation
The word whiplash may conjure up images of ambulance-chasing claims companies and people skiving off from work in neck-braces, but the facts are much more painful. Whiplash is no joke for hundreds of people in the UK who find themselves unable to go back to work for weeks or months on end because of their injuries. A professional personal injury solicitor will help you get compensation for your whiplash injuries, if the car or road accidents and whiplash claims which caused them was not your fault.
Some commonly asked questions about whiplash include:
1. How do I know if I have whiplash?
If you suspect you have whiplash injuries after a car collision (usually a rear-end shunt) or any type of accident that has caused the head and neck to jerk violently backwards and forwards, seek the advice of a doctor who will treat you for your injuries.
2. What symptoms am I likely to suffer with whiplash injury?
You are likely to have a very painful neck, as whiplash causes damage to the soft tissue in the neck, and you could also be suffering from back pain, and numbness in the arms and shoulders. Blurred vision may also occur.
3. Will I feel the symptoms of whiplash straight away?
Not necessarily. If you have suffered an accident that has caused whiplash injury, you may not feel the symptoms until a few hours afterwards. Some symptoms of whiplash can start mildly and get increasingly worse, and symptoms can even develop days or weeks after the accident. It is therefore vital you see a GP as soon as possible after the accident so he can recommend the correct treatment for your whiplash injuries.
4. How soon will I be able to go back to work after suffering whiplash injury?
Most sufferers of whiplash will recover within a couple of weeks. If the whiplash symptoms are more severe, the recovery period could stretch to months, but a GP will be able to advise you on this.
