Road traffic accidents are among the most common types of accidents and as the roads grow more congested the likelihood of suffering as a result of such an accident is only likely to increase. Injuries can suffer from the seemingly minor but potentially costly whiplash injuries that are commonplace, to fatal injuries. Whiplash injuries can lead to time off work, medical intervention, and a variety of physiotherapy and other therapeutic sessions.
Whiplash is caused by the head or neck suffering from a sudden jolt and whilst it is most commonly associated with road traffic accidents it can in fact be caused by a variety of other accidents and occurrences. Symptoms can vary depending on the severity of the injury suffered but patients will usually require at least one or two medical examinations over a period of time after the accident in order to ensure that the injury isn’t more serious.
Symptoms of whiplash include pain and discomfort in the neck and sufferers also report headaches and similar symptoms in the neck and arms. More severe cases can lead to swelling of the joints, pins and needles, dizziness, and nausea. If you experience any of the symptoms of whiplash following a road traffic accident you should consult your doctor in the first place. Similarly, if the symptoms worsen you should go back to your doctor for further advice.
If you have suffered whiplash in a road traffic accident that was not your fault then you may be entitled to make a whiplash claim. Even if the party that caused the accident is uninsured or fled the scene you are still able in most cases to make a successful claim and subsequently win whiplash compensation. There is a body known as the Motor Insurers Bureau to ensure innocent victims of an uninsured driver don’t go uncompensated. MayIClaim maintains a network of qualified and experienced personal injury solicitors who can assess your accident and determine whether or not you have a case for whiplash compensation.
