Personal Injury Claims Cardiff have been handling many of these cases over several years, and have managed to secure compensation for many people that have suffered from whiplash. Speak to us today about how we can help you.
Compensation is available for whiplash related injuries
Contrary to what a significant proportion of people believe, suffering from whiplash following an accident can attract financial compensation. Under UK personal injury law, if you have suffered whiplash as a result of someone else’s negligent actions, you are entitled to ask for a level of financial compensation in return.
Accidents that result in whiplash tend to involve cars or other vehicles on the road: when one vehicle comes into contact with another at a particular speed, this can cause people to jerk suddenly. This unexpected jolt of the head and neck is essentially what whiplash is. However it is possible to suffer from whiplash in other situations e.g. a sudden trip or fall.
The symptoms are far more numerous than many people would have believed: muscle fatigue or strain, dizziness, and tiredness are all indicative of whiplash. Another important point to understand is that these symptoms may not necessarily be identifiable immediately following an accident. In some circumstances, it can take up to two days before people can start to exhibit symptoms.
The expert personal injury team at Personal Injury Claims Cardiff in Cardiff is very familiar with the symptoms of whiplash, and will be able to tell you whether or not you could pursue a claim for financial compensation.
