Accident Lawyer in Broadland

Whiplash can be a very painful and disabling an injury, much more so than people who have never suffered from it realise. It causes so much discomfort that it is understandable why so many innocent victims get in touch with our accident lawyer in Broadland, to make a compensation claim. This is their legal right is their whiplash injury was caused by someone else.

Most of us associate whiplash with car accidents, but it can happen in many ways, in fact anything that causes a sudden jolt to your head, or bumps into your head can tear or stretch the ligaments and tendons in your neck, creating a whiplash injury.

The symptoms that may make you want to get in touch with our accident lawyer in Broadland 

Whiplash symptoms vary greatly, and not all victims will suffer from all of them, but in the first few days victims can experience: 

  • Neck pains
  • Backache
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Pins and needles in the arms and hands
  • Blurred vision
  • Lack of mobility in the neck area
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Depression

The pain of whiplash does not usually appear for 6-12 hours after the accident, and often it is the next day. If you are in immediate pain after an accident, it is unlikely to be whiplash, and could be something more serious, for which you should seek immediate medical attention. 

Letting whiplash heal

It used to be though that the best way to treat any soft tissue injury was rest to allow it to heal. But the advice has changed, and now it is said that the more active you are the quicker the injury will heal. It might be uncomfortable to be moving about, but you cannot make the injury any worse. 

Whiplash is a self healing injury and you have a mild case, it should right itself in just a few weeks, but a severe case can last for many months and some sufferers are left with permanent weaknesses in the back and neck.
