Whiplash Injury Claims Compensation: Claim the compensation you deserve after suffering from whiplash
If you’ve suffered from whiplash through no fault of your own, you will understandably want to know what you are owed, and that’s what we are here for. We will help you claim the maximum amount of compensation you are owed with minimum fuss, so you can get the closure you need to carry on with your life. We don’t believe you should have to go through the trauma of an accident with no support, especially when that accident wasn’t your fault.
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury to the neck muscles. It is also known as a sprain or strain. When a person has suffered from whiplash it may mean damage has been caused to the joints located in between the vertebrae in the neck. It can also mean that the nerves have been damaged and discs and ligaments are painful.
Many people association whiplash with a car accident but whiplash can occur in all types of accidents:
- Falling downstairs
- Sudden jolts to the neck or back
- Falling off your bike
- Being thrown from a horse
- Being hit in the head
- Sporting accidents
When a person has been involved in an accident they may not realised they have whiplash straight away. It can take up to 24 hours for symptoms of whiplash to become apparent. Some common symptoms include:
- Being unable to move your neck
- Excruciating pain when you do move your neck
- The neck is sore to touch
- You suffer constant headaches
There are other symptoms that are rarer but do happen:
- Ringing in the ears
- Pain in the shoulders, arms or hands
- The feeling of pins and needles down one or both arms
- Feeling dizzy
- Vertigo (the feeling of movement when you are still)
- Difficulty sleeping
If you suffer any of these symptoms after an accident we advise you to seek medical attention right away. When you are claiming whiplash compensation it’s best to get as much evidence as possible. Here at Beardsells Personal Injury Solicitors we will help you every step of the way. The sooner to see your doctors the easier it will be to treat and diagnose whiplash.
Whiplash has been a popular topic in the news of late; this is due to car insurance companies raising prices and claiming it’s because of unconfirmed whiplash compensation claims. People now believe they cannot claim for whiplash after they have endured a painful accident. We want to tell you that this is not true. If you’ve experienced a distressing accident that has resulted in whiplash then you are well within your rights to claim compensation.
Here at Beardsells we will explain fully the process of whiplash compensation claims. There are a number of different ways that medical professional can diagnose whiplash:
- An MRI scan – this enables doctors to see soft tissue damage
- CT scans
- Detailed descriptions of the accident
Rest assured that whiplash diagnoses are not given out easily so once a diagnosis has been made your case will be strong. See your doctors as soon as symptoms arise.
After your Accident
As soon as your accident has happened you need to start taking steps towards your compensation. This means you need as much evidence as possible. At the scene of the accident we recommend you take as many names as possible, names of the person responsible for the accident and names of possible witnesses.
Get the contact details of witnesses to the accident; addresses and phone numbers. Take photographs of the scene and talk to the person responsible for the accident. If your whiplash was caused during a road traffic accident then make sure the negligent driver has insurance, is the owner of their vehicle and gives you all their contact details. If the driver doesn’t have insurance or it is a stolen vehicle that has crashed into you then call the police immediately.
