Making a claim for Whiplash Compensation
It’s pretty hard to argue against the idea that anyone who’s been injured thanks to the negligence of someone else deserves some form of compensation. Accidents are going to happen from time to time, obviously, and if you’ve fallen victim to an accident which was your fault, or can be put down to simple bad luck, then there’s really not a lot you can do beyond getting on with the rest of your life whilst resolving not to make the same mistakes again. All too often, however, no matter how careful you are, you may find yourself being involved in an accident which was caused by the carelessness or recklessness of another. It could be that you’ve been involved in a Road Traffic Accident which happened because another road user was driving in an irresponsible manner, or due to the poor condition of the driving surface. Perhaps you fell after tripping over some debris which should have been cleared away in your workplace, or slipping on the wet floor of a supermarket. In a way, the details are of secondary importance to the general principal, and it’s a principal which informs everything that we do at WhiplashCompensation.com, the principal being that those who’ve suffered through no fault of their own ought to receive adequate compensation for this suffering.
As you’ve probably guessed from our name, we’re a company which specialises in one specific form of injury, namely whiplash. All too often, whiplash is regarded as a fairly minor injury, with those who are suffering from it thought of as having got off somewhat lightly. We know from experience that this is not the case. Whiplash injury is cause by the sudden jerking back and forth of the head, a movement which results in damage to the soft tissue of the neck. Such injuries often occur in car accidents, such as a rear end shunt, or from falls which involve high impact, awkward landings. Although whiplash may take a few hours or sometimes even days to become apparent, the symptoms can include pains in the neck and back, headaches, blurred vision and dizziness. In the longer term, whiplash can become serious enough to cause memory problems, fatigue, difficulties sleeping and depression.
It’s clear, then, that whiplash is a serious injury and one which, at its’ worst, can have a major detrimental effect on the victims life. If you’re suffering from whiplash in this way then you’ve every right to seek compensation. In the first instance, compensation can be awarded to cover initial expenses such as prescription charges and medical bills, whilst, in the longer term, the amount awarded will take into account such things as lost wages and ongoing physical and psychological distress. Our personal injury lawyers are experts on both the legal mechanisms of claiming compensation, and the precise details of the problems caused by whiplash.
