What is whiplash?

Whiplash is associated with neck injuries due to car accidents, but not limited to these. Such neck injuries can incapacitate a person to continue with his/her life and daily activities. Some persons might not go to work for a few months or years if the injuries are severe. No matter the case, it is recommended to ask for support from our legal advisors who can use the whiplash claim calculator. This is how you will find out how much compensation you can receive. Here are extra details about whiplash that you might want to consider:

  1.  Neck injuries might be mild or severe, depending on the accident.
  2.  In most cases, neck injuries are consequences of car accidents.
  3.  An involuntary and violent neck movement can cause whiplash and severe spinal injuries.
  4.  In severe cases, neck injuries can cause permanent damage and even paralysis.

It is important to have access to a whiplash compensation calculator and see how much money you can receive in such a case, especially if the car accident wasn’t your fault. One of our personal injury lawyers in London will take your case, make some verifications, and then propose a whiplash car accident claim.
