Symptoms and Treatment of Whiplash
Whiplash has a number of symptoms, some of which are more subtle and less well-known than others. It can often occur along with other injuries from the same accident, making it quite hard for people who aren't doctors to diagnose accurately.
At The Legal Oracle, we know you need help with the recovery stages of a whiplash injury as well as help with your whiplash claim. We have included some information on whiplash recovery below, but if you want to know more please do get in touch.

Recovery from Whiplash
Whiplash recovery can take a very long time, and it is the long recovery time that is one of the worst things about the injury. It can affect different people of different ages in very different ways, meaning that few people will have the same experience.
Hopefully, we can offer a rough picture of how long a 'typical' whiplash injury lasts.

Children and Whiplash
It is hard to detect whiplash in children because they often don't understand their own symptoms well enough to explain what is happening.
Children do experience whiplash, though, so if you suspect that your child is suffering from a whiplash injury please seek professional medical advice, followed by professional legal advice if necessary.

Insurance and Whiplash
If the other driver has no insurance, or an insurance company is pressuring you to take an unfavourable settlement for your whiplash claim, it can be extremely confusing and concerning.
You don't have to settle for a settlement though. Get in touch with The Legal Oracle to see if our expert whiplash solicitors could help you claim more than your insurance company settlement offer.
