Whiplash & Neck Injury Claims
What is a whiplash injury?
Whiplash injuries are caused when a person suffers from a sudden jolt to their head or body which damages the muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues in the neck. Whiplash claims are one of the most common claim types we see at TRUE Solicitors LLP.
When we hear the word “whiplash” we automatically think of someone who has been involved in a car accident; however, whiplash can be caused by many different situations including slips, trips and falls, sports injuries and even assaults and attacks.
How do I know if I have sustained a whiplash injury?
Whiplash symptoms can include pain and stiffness in the neck, pain in the shoulder, arms or back, headaches, muscular pain, spasms and reduced movement in the neck.
After your accident, whiplash symptoms may start a few hours later (around 6 to 12 hours) with any additional inflammation or bruising taking perhaps 24 to 48 hours to develop.
How much compensation will I receive for a whiplash claim?
The level of compensation awarded for whiplash claims varies, depending on the severity of the injury, the length of time the symptoms last, and the effect the injury has on your life; such as your ability to work, care for your children, enjoy hobbies, play sport, perform household chores, socialise etc.
