The Simplicity of Whiplash Injury Claims
You may have suffered it yourself.
What you may not have done though, is claimed compensation.
People who fail to make whiplash claims are missing out on literally thousands of pounds.
In simplified terms, a whiplash injury is when impact causes the body to be jolted backwards, then forwards, in a sequential and ferocious fashion.
This generally happens as a result of one car colliding with the rear of another car.
When the head and the neck are shocked by involuntary movement in such a way they get damaged.
Pain ensues, as should a trip to hospital.
There are typical symptoms to whiplash:
- Back pain.
- Shoulder pain.
- Neck pain.
Whilst certain people experience certain symptoms for extended time frames, most individuals are given a clean bill of health within six weeks - two months.
Even the inconvenience that a six week layoff brings about is reason to make a personal injury claim, just for the pain and inconvenience, as well as the loss of earnings that some might experience.
This is without mentioning the trauma inherent of being involved in a terse rear shunting.
In such a scenario it is beyond question as to whether a person can make a accident injury claim - a person will definitely make a successful personal injury claim.
The only thing that a whiplash victim needs to be sure of is that they get the licence plate number of the car which caused the smash.
From there on in it's pretty much a case of waiting for the compensation to be awarded.
With whiplash injuries being so common, it is relatively simple to find a accident advice helpline that has the relevant knowledge to make a successful claim on behalf of a victim.
All a victim will need to do is to search for no win no fee personal injury solicitors in their area, and the rest of the process will be handled by the solicitor.
It really is that simple to get justice, and it doesn't cost the victim a penny.
