Whiplash injuries are most common after a car accident where the impact of the collision has caused the injury. However, whiplash injuries can also occur in slipping or tripping accidents or if someone falls, then it is common to see injuries to the neck and shoulders caused by the impact.
What Can I Claim For?
If you have suffered a whiplash injury then you will be able to claim compensation for the pain and injury that you have sustained. However, you may well also have suffered emotional upset and psychological damage because of the accident. An accident can be one of the most frightening experiences of your life.
In those cases, we are able to obtain a psychiatric report detailing the upset and trauma that you have experienced and include that as part of the claim.
This means that you are able to claim for psychological damage as well as the whiplash injuries that you have sustained.
It is also possible that you are unable to work after an accident because of the pain and upset. You may lose out on wages because of that.
If that is the case then we are able to pursue a loss of earnings claim for you. This basically means that we will pursue any wages or losses that you have incurred because of the accident. This will ensure that you are not left out of pocket after an accident that is not your fault.
We specialise in helping people with whiplash injuries after an accident and we are dedicated to obtaining the maximum compensation that we can for you in the quickest possible time.

What Is A Whiplash Injury?
Whiplash injuries occur when a person’s head whips backwards and forwards very suddenly. The head is supported by the neck and this sudden movement can lead to straining and damage to the muscles and ligaments in the neck. It can take days for symptoms to appear but when they do the typical symptoms include:-
• Neck, shoulder and back pain
• Stiffness and soreness of the neck
• Headaches and dizziness
Whiplash injuries can cause long term pain and can have a huge impact on your life. It can mean that you are not able to work or to look after your children or take part in your hobbies such as playing football, golf or walking.
The discomfort can continue for months and in some instances the symptoms can become chronic and go on for years.
It is essential that if you have suffered a whiplash injury that you seek medical treatment so that the doctor can make sure that there is nothing sinister or underlying, such as a hairline fracture of a vertebrae. An x-ray may be required or even an MRI scan to make sure that the injury is just soft tissue.
If you have been in an accident and suffered a whiplash injury you may be wondering whether or not you are able to make a claim. This will depend on the circumstances of your accident and whether it can be shown that the other party is at fault for the accident and has caused your injuries.
If you are unsure whether you can make a claim or not then feel free to talk to us and we will discuss your case free of charge and without obligation. We are here to help you and provide advice and guidance so that you make the right decision for you after an accident.
