Whiplash is usually considered to be as a result of a car accident, however, it can also be caused in a sporting accident, or by a slip, trip or fall. Symptoms are not always obvious straight away, but it can become incredibly debilitating for the injured person. If you have suffered from this condition due to an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.
To find out if you could make a whiplash claim, contact our friendly and knowledgeable solicitors today. You can get in touch by either calling us on 0333 323 5292, or by submitting a claims form and waiting to hear back from us.
Whiplash is caused when a person’s head or body is jolted suddenly, resulting in muscle, ligament, tendon or other soft tissue damage that causes pain, stiffness and movement restriction. Symptoms do not normally present themselves until a couple of days after the accident and may get worse the longer it is left untreated.
Common symptoms include:
- Back pain
- Pins and needles
The condition can vary in severity, from hardly being noticeable to causing incredible amounts of discomfort and pain, and this can affect the amount of damages you could receive.
