Accident solicitor in Amble

If you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Road traffic accidents are sadly quite common in the Amble area and elsewhere in the UK. One common injury arising from road traffic accidents is whiplash.

Accident solicitor in Amble – what is whiplash?

Whiplash is the term given to the injury of the soft tissue of the neck. This is basically the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Of course, there can be other neck injuries that are more serious and involve the neck bones – the spine. This type of injury is less common but can sometimes occur. In general, whiplash is a self-limiting illness that gets better by itself in time. Many sufferers are referred to a physiotherapist to get some good advice about how to manage the condition themselves and speed up recovery. Some symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness – not able to move it as far as normally
  • Headaches
  • Pins and needles in the arms

Some people with whiplash also get some numbness in the arms and have trouble sleeping. Pain killers can help to make the situation more comfortable and allow you to get on with your life.

Accident solicitor in Amble – preventing whiplash

Of course the way to avoid whiplash is to avoid a collision in a motor vehicle. However, as many cases of whiplash are suffered in accidents that were someone else’s fault, then this might not be possible.

There are some other ways of reducing the severity of whiplash should a collision occur. The main one is by fitting a head restraint to your car. Most modern cars are fitted with them, they slot into the top of your seat. Some people remove them and this is not a good idea.

A properly fitted head restraint will prevent your head from being thrown so far back if a collision occurs. This will reduce the severity of the stretching action on your neck. As a result the severity of injury will be reduced. The head rest will also protect you from passengers and other objects which may come flying forward in a crash.

Of course to work effectively the head restraint has to be fitted correctly and adjusted for different heights of driver and passenger.
