there is no rushing this, i am nearly 2 years down the line and still not gone to court yet, they are still building a case, but this does not go against you it just shows how it has affected you long term - which is the point of compensation.

hope you get some relief from the chiropractor or someone.

I had a rear end smash like you in 1998, I suffered whiplash & intermittent neck pain from there on. I saw a private specialist as has been mentioned to you. He did his report and I received £2000, however, he did warn me that it was the unknown as to what may happen in around 10yrs time.

2005 I needed major spinal surgery on my neck (cervical spine) to remove a prolapsed disc from between vertebrae C6 - C7 I had a bone implant which was taken from my hip & had titanium plat & screws fitted. After full recovery I return to being a keen cyclist & work etc.
The surgeon stated that the disc prolapse was as a direct result of the whiplash and it just got worse over time.

2007 Another major surgery as the disc above the operation site had gone C5-C6. I now have a Tantilum Cage in my spine & the previous metalwork removed.

I also now have Osteoarthritis of the Facet joints and after being very ill over the past two-three years have recently been diagnosed with Fibro.

The big point I want to make to you is don't rush in for compensation!! The life I had is gone forever, but, I claimed at the time and can't claim again, so, yes get a professional Doctors report on your current neck trouble. Keep a copy of all documents & details of any loss of earnings etc and be patient about claiming! I am unfortunate & don't think for a moment that you are likely to go through the same hell as me, but if you have more serious issues down the line (and you have kept a good record of all doctors visits etc etc) then, may be the time to put your claim through.

Money can't put my health right but had I have claimed later, I may not be so worried about my job & losing my house etc now!

I wish you all the best (this has not meant to scare you, just to make you think for a while)
