What Is A Whiplash Injury And Can You Make A Whiplash Injury Claim?  

        A whiplash injury is caused when the head is violently thrown backwards and forwards. This type of injury can occur in sports like being thrown from a horse or vehicular accidents. Only when a person sustains this injury does he realize how painful and incapacitating it can be.

        When you are sitting in a stationary car and the car is hit at the back by another vehicle, it can lead to this injury. The fact that most people wear seat belts actually ends up causing this injury. Though it must be said that the seat belt actually prevents you from sustaining a more serious injury.

        The pain from a whiplash injury is not just restricted to the neck. A person will also suffer pain in the back and shoulder, have headaches and get bouts of dizziness. Sometimes, a person can also suffer from jaw injury. The fact remains that anyone sustaining this injury would be out of action for a week or so.

        The treatment for this type of injury includes wearing a neck collar and being put on pain killers or anti-inflammatory medication. While most people recover in a couple of weeks, there are others who can suffer from pain and limited neck movement for months together. Sometimes, these symptoms can be life long.

        If you have suffered a whiplash injury because of someone else's fault, you should immediately look for an attorney who can give you legal advice. You can file a claim for compensation any time, but the outer limit is three years from the date of the accident. However, if you want to get the compensation, you should ensure that you file the charges as soon as possible.

        Also, you should look for an attorney who does not charge you administration costs to make the claim. There are attorneys who charge these costs and you should avoid them as far as possible. Your attorney should be willing to work out a reasonable fee-structure with you which is payable only after you receive the total claim amount.
