Facts about whiplash injury

For many years suffers of whiplash injury could be easily identified by the uncomfortable looking neck brace that they were required to wear. However, this image is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. More and more doctors are now recommending that gentle movement is far more beneficial for a whiplash injury than the total immobility previously advised. (Check with your doctor, however, before attempting any sort of exercise following a car accident).

More than just a pain in the neck
While whiplash injury is very rarely serious, it can be painful and often debilitating for a period of time. Headaches and nausea are not uncommon, and some people can feel extremely tired as their body begins the healing process. Most people, therefore, find that it is necessary to take some time off work – anything between a couple of days and several weeks is not unusual depending on the severity of the whiplash injury.

We'll help you make a claim
If you’ve received a whiplash injury as a result of a car crash which wasn’t your fault, then you have the right to claim accident compensation. This will help you cope with the unexpected financial losses which your injury has caused – such as loss of earnings, treatment and prescription costs, travelling expenses etc – as well as compensating you for the injury itself.
