Whiplash Injuries ClaimSee how much you can claim for your whiplash
Whilst whiplash injuries can be sustained from playing sport or falling awkwardly, the most common cause of whiplash are road traffic accidents. Whiplash injuries can be extremely painful and for a few days can be very debilitating causing you to take time off work and to adjust your daily routine.
You will be able to make a claim for whiplash if:
- Someone elses fault
- Unable to return to work
- Badly maintained road surface
- Serious car accident
- Need expert advice
- Driver, passenger
Whiplash injuries are caused by the neck and head being jerked forward in a sudden jolt movement. The force of the movement causes the muscles, tendons and ligaments to be stretched beyond their usual range. The injury is caused instantly, although it can be between 6 and 12 hours before you feel all of the symptoms of your whiplash injury. Most common symptoms are headaches and severe neck and head pain. Thankfully in most cases the symptoms of the injury only last a few days. You can make a claim if
- You experience pain and stiffness and loss of movement in your neck or shoulders
- You suffer from headaches since your accident
- Have dizziness and blurred vision or find it difficult to swallow
- Are suffering from tiredness and poor concentration
- Have pain in your shoulders and lower back
