If you work as a bus driver or do any other kind of driving job, then you could become involved in an accident at work in Pontrhydyfen and end up suffering from a whiplash injury, in which you need medical attention.
If you find yourself in this situation, and the accident wasn’t your fault, then you may want to make a personal injury claim, using the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline for help.
A whiplash injury that is caused in an accident at work in Pontrhydyfen, is an extremely painful injury and it also can be disabling. It is not just in a driving job that you can sustain whiplash though, any accident that causes your head to be suddenly jolted can create this type of soft tissue injury. It is sometimes caused by a slip, trip or fall accident and something knocking your head with force is another typical way to get a whiplash injury.
A whiplash injury from an accident at work in Pontrhydyfen
Your employer has a duty of care to protect you from an accident at work in Pontrhydyfen. They should make sure that all the correct health and safety measures are in place so that you are not injured in an accident at work. Failing to do this could mean they have to face a personal injury claim, and possibly an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive.
The effects of whiplash
You could have an accident at work, or anywhere else, and feel fine, not realising you have a neck problem till some hours later. Then over the next few days, other symptoms can start to develop, because by the nature of whiplash it often gets worse before it starts to improve.
Here are some of the symptoms you may experience:
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs
- Muscle spasms
- Blurred vision
- Pain in the neck area
- Stiffness and lack of movement in the neck
These symptoms are unpleasant enough, but there are much more serious injuries you can sustain in an accident at work, and sometimes people lose their lives.
