Whiplash Injury Compensation
Whiplash is an injury that is caused by rapid acceleration and deceleration, commonly in a car accident that involves a collision. The impact of this collision at a high speed causes a sudden “whipping” of the head or body that can result in stiffness, nerve damage and extreme discomfort.
In most car accidents that don’t result in severe bodily harm or death, whiplash is the most common injury that occurs. If this has happened to you or someone you know in Western Australia, the professionals at Stephen Browne Personal Injury Lawyers can establish whether you are eligible for compensation.
Whiplash Symptoms Can Be Delayed
Back pain and neck stiffness may not be noticed until days or weeks after the accident, as the injury accelerates the natural degeneration of the human body. If you’re coping with symptoms that were delayed, it may be complicated to understand your legal rights.
Whiplash symptoms include:
- neck/back pain
- heaviness around the neck and shoulders
- stiffness and reduced movement
- pain or stiffness after long periods of stillness
- headaches and migraines
- numbness or altered sensation throughout the body
It’s important to seek medical assistance when you experience any of these symptoms, as whiplash injuries can result in ongoing difficulties and persistent pain. The good news is that you can seek compensation for medical bills and loss of income.
What Does Whiplash Injury Compensation Cover?
A whiplash injury claim covers all of your physical and mental injuries and losses. For example, you can claim medical, rehabilitation and hospital expenses, as well as loss of earnings, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and at-home help/nursing from others, even if it was unpaid.
