Whiplash injury compensation claims following a road traffic accident are quite common but how do we go about making RTA compensation claims?
Well, first of all, let’s look at what a whiplash injury is…
Whiplash results in restricted movement of the neck. There is also pain which can be transmitted down to the lower back and the victim may suffer from headaches.
The symptoms, which can worsen over a matter of days, can include heaviness of the limbs, muscle spasms, tinnitus and even memory loss.
Whiplash occurs when the vehicle suffers a heavy jolt. Tendons in the neck or spine are stretched or torn.
The resulting injury and symptoms lead to pain and suffering.
They will require medical treatment and the victim may require a period off work, resulting in loss of income.
It is for these very reasons that compensation claims for injuries are pursued.
As with any injury it is very important that there is medical evidence to back up the complaint.
While it is in the victim’s own interest to seek medical help following such an injury to aid diagnosis and recovery, the medical notes will also provide vital evidence when the claim is pursued.
It is also in the claimant’s own interest to note any loss of income and extra income, such as prescription costs, travel to the hospital for specialist appointments related to the injury.
Future loss of income, such as your inability to continue your current job, and the effect on your future lifestyle will also be taken into account when making a whiplash injury compensation claim.
