    Do you need accident legal advice in East Sussex?

    Although the instances of road traffic accidents have decreased over the years, they are still a problem and usually due to a lack of care and attention to the road. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and it was the fault of someone else, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    If this happens, you would need to seek accident legal advice in East Sussex from experienced personal injury lawyers. When these types of accidents occur, you could suffer a wide range of injuries. However, one of the most common types of injuries to arise from a car accident is whiplash.

    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash is an injury which occurs when the head jolts back and forth during a collision, causing a lot of pain in the upper area of the body. Whiplash most commonly affects the head, but can also affect the neck and shoulders. You will usually experience severe pain in the upper areas of the body if you are suffering from whiplash. If you have suffered from whiplash due to someone else’s negligence, you should seek accident legal advice in East Sussex.

    Diagnosing whiplash

    The doctor will usually be able to diagnose whiplash through your symptoms, although in some cases, they may carry out an x-ray. As whiplash is fairly common after an accident, it can usually be diagnosed quite quickly and easily.

    Treatment for whiplash

    Whiplash may last only days in minor cases, but in more severe cases it can last weeks or even months. It may even prevent the victim from carrying out their usual daily activities. If you end up with whiplash, you should seek medical attention in the first instance. The doctor will usually give you some strong painkillers to help with the pain and may even refer you to a physiotherapist.
