Accident lawyers in Thorpe Hamlet
There are numerous injuries that can happen in all types of accidents, and if in the last three years you have been the innocent victim of an accident, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. One of the most common injuries is whiplash. Often sustained in the rear-end shunt of a car, it can also happen by any other knock to the head that pushes it out of its normal movement zone, such as playing contact sports or falling off a bicycle.
The sudden jolting motion causes damage to the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the neck area, so causing whiplash. Whiplash is not actually a medical term, and if this happened in any other part of the body it would be called a sprain. If you have whiplash caused in any way by someone else, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim and may want to use the services of accident lawyers in Thorpe Hamlet.
Accident lawyers in Thorpe Hamlet explain how you will know you have the condition
You will be in no doubt if you have whiplash, as it is a very painful and disabling injury. Mild cases of whiplash will clear of their own accord in just a few weeks, but in more severe cases you might experience:
- Pain in the neck area;
- Stiffness to the neck;
- Blurred vision;
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs;

Whiplash injuries often do not become apparent until the day after the accident, and you should always seek medical attention.
