Whiplash Injury Compensation

Whiplash Injury Compensation

A whiplash type injury normally sustained in a motor vehicle accident is sometimes not evident straightaway and does not start hurting for several hours or even days.

It is recommended that treatment is sought as soon as the effects of the whiplash injury are felt. If possible, ensure that the doctor notes the reason for the whiplash injury in their medical notes.

In addition the incident must be reported to the police and the CTP insurer of the responsible party for the accident ASAP as time limits apply. Try to get a copy of the official accident report from the police.

Sometimes simply treatment such as physiotherapy will resolve the injury, however unfortunately it is not unusual for there to be permanent element to the condition.
