Do I have whiplash?

Whiplash refers to various neck trauma caused by the head unexpectedly and unnaturally jolting in any direction - damaging tissue in the neck.

What are the symptoms of whiplash injury?

If you are experiencing or have experienced any of the following symptoms following an accident, you may have cause to make a whiplash accident claim:

  • Constant discomfort or pain in the neck area (pain severity can differ from case to case)
  • Painful twitches or twinges in the shoulders
  • Difficulty moving the neck due to pain or stiff muscles
  • Light-headedness, uneasy balance and/or slight tinnitus
  • Headaches

It can take up to 24 hours for any signs of whiplash symptoms to kick in post-accident. Usually these will only cause discomfort and pain temporarily but some injuries can last for months, even years.

Victims of whiplash will often struggle to drive, exercise or carry out any manual labour - meaning you could be required to stay off work until symptoms subside.

How long does whiplash last?

In the most common cases, whiplash symptoms will generally subside within a few months. However there are instances where full recovery can take longer and in rare cases years, with symptoms of whiplash persisting on a long term basis. To find out more about whiplash recovery and treatment please visit our whiplash compensation guide.

How much compensation for a whiplash injury claim?

The average whiplash settlement will take into account any financial expenses that have arisen due to your injury, such as travel expenses, prescriptions, loss of income etc. You will also be compensated for the pain and suffering your whiplash injury has caused you. This payout will depend on the length of time your whiplash symptoms last. Since a full recovery can take anything from a few weeks to several years, it is difficult to give an exact figure for the average payout for a whiplash claim.

We believe it is important to judge each case on an individual basis to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. If you would like to know how much you will get for your whiplash claim, the best thing to do is contact us. It is completely free and you will not be obliged to make a claim.
