Whiplash Injury Compensation Claims in Wakefield

One of the most common injuries after a car accident is whiplash, which is an injury to the muscles and ligaments of the neck caused by a sudden strain or stretch. Whiplash causes some significant degree of discomfort, and you will find your neck is stiff and sore. Psychological stress is often experienced at the same time, if you have been through a road traffic accident. However, whiplash can also be caused by taking part in other activities which put a strain on the neck, such as bungee jumping or rollercoasters, or by a simple trip or fall.

Whiplash is usually mild, and symptoms are usually gone after a few weeks. However, in some cases pain can be chronic, if there is more pronounced damage to the neck. In the most serious cases, the neck injury may cause disability or deformity. Pain which lasts a long time can also affect you psychologically, causing anxiety and stress if you find that you are unable to continue with your everyday activities normally.

Make a Claim for a Whiplash Injury

You may find that you are entitled to compensation, and our team of personal injury lawyers for Wakefield have expertise in helping people with whiplash with their claims. You may be able to claim financial help for the costs associated with whiplash, such as inability to work or problems relating to childcare. Our solicitors will examine your case and find out how much you may be able to claim.

A doctor will need to examine you in order to prove that you have whiplash, and you will need this written evidence as well as proof of the circumstances of your accident in order to designate liability. If you incur any costs as part of this process, you may be able to reclaim them as part of your compensation package. Once you have explained your situation to our Wakefield solicitors, they will be able to help you take the next steps to get your compensation as quickly as possible.
