Have You Got Whiplash?

Road Traffic Accidents can cause a variety of injuries, some of which will require medical attention. The most obvious or serious injuries will naturally be assessed and treated first, whereas some injuries take time to materialise.

The second type of injuries can be easily overlooked, especially if they merely cause discomfort and loss of function, such as minor whiplash.

Even if your injury is minor, or your symptoms take time to materialise, you should be able to claim compensation to recover the costs associated with your injury if the accident was caused by someone else.

Common Symptoms Of Whiplash

Common symptoms include neck stiffness, difficulty moving your head, pain in your shoulders or arms, headaches, pain and tenderness in the neck and muscle spasms.

Less common symptoms are dizziness, tiredness, pins and needles in your hands, memory loss and irritability. These symptoms might appear straight away or several hours after the accident.

Whiplash is often seen as minor, but it can have serious consequences. It may prevent you from working until it is fully healed, which can be a significant amount of time. Or it may require specialist treatment, such as physiotherapy or rehabilitation for more serious damage.

How to make a personal injury claim for a whiplash injury

Scot Accident Claims can help support you when making a claim for a whiplash injury, whether your symptoms are mild, moderate or severe.

It is important to start your claim as soon as possible after the accident, while memories are fresh. However, you should also wait to find out how your injury has developed (its severity and impact) to find out much you need to claim.

Will my claim be successful?

If you caused the accident your claim is unlikely to succeed.If you were only partially responsible, it could be successful. If you were not responsible, your claim would hopefully succeed.

How much compensation will I get?

The amount you receive depends on nature and severity of injuries, as well as your costs, such as future earnings, medical expenses, care needs, home modifications or pain and suffering.
