Whiplash neck injuries are painful and can last for a long time. Not only is the immediate pain debilitating, it can lead to more problems in the future, including some that come and go throughout your entire life. The neck itself is responsible for such an important job that it can keep you from doing many of the things you do in your day to day life, including your job.
What to Do about Whiplash
The first thing you should do when you feel pain is see a Doctor. You should also remember the less easily recognised symptoms such as tingling, numbness or radiating pain in the arms, numbness or tingling in the legs, lower back pain and sciatica as well as headaches, fatigue or sleeplessness. These are all important signs that you have greater problems as a result of a whiplash neck injury.
Along with your Doctor you need to also seek a qualified Solicitor to deal with your settlement. If the accident was not your fault, you need to make a claim with the at fault party’s insurance company which can be intimidating and unsuccessful if you do it yourself. A Solicitor knows how to approach the insurance company, and they know what is reasonable and fair for a settlement.
Settlements can vary anywhere from £1,000 upwards, depending on the severity of the injury as determined by your Doctor, the time lost from work, the extent of your medical bills, and how long your injury is expected to require care.
