“If you have been injured in a Road Accident that was not your fault, and have suffered a Whiplash Injury, you may be able to make a claim for compensation” Sarah Denny, Litigation Executive
Specialist Whiplash Claim Solicitors
“Whiplash” takes its name from the motion of the neck or back being thrown forwards and/or backwards at rapid speed, thereby creating the injury. This action may cause the fibres of the neck muscles to tear, resulting in pain and often a decreased range of movement. Whiplash and whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) represent a range of Neck Injuries that can be caused by or related to a sudden distortion of the neck.
We have helped hundreds of people make successful compensation claims enabling them to rebuild their lives following a serious whiplash injury. We provide our clients with access to our network of leading medical experts to ensure they receive the best treatment and injury rehabilitation available, in addition to fighting for appropriate compensation.
Our specialist personal injury lawyers will provide you with free initial advice on your compensation claim and with our No Win No Fee agreements there’s no financial risk to you if your claim is unsuccessful*.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Symptoms reported by sufferers include: pain and aching to the neck and back, referred pain to the shoulders, sensory disturbance (such as pins and needles) to the arms & legs and headaches.
Symptoms can appear directly after the crash, but often are not felt until days afterwards. Whiplash is usually confined to the spinal cord (neck to pubic bone), and the most common areas of the spinal cord affected by whiplash are the neck, and the mid-back (middle of the spine). Reliably diagnosing a whiplash injury or disorder is not difficult for a trained doctor.
After Effects of Whiplash
The consequences of whiplash range from mild pain for a few days (most common symptom), to severe disability caused by restricted head movement or of the cervical spine, sometimes with persistent pain.
We are able to help you claim for compensation if you have suffered a whiplash injury.
