It has been estimated that over three million accidents happen every year in the UK, and one of the most common injuries from them is whiplash. This is because it can happen so easily in a multitude of different ways. If the accident that created your whiplash happened in Cumbria and was caused by someone else, you might be considering Allerdale whiplash claims for compensation.
How whiplash happens?
There is no end to the ways whiplash can be sustained, a few examples being:
- Tripping or slipping over and landing awkwardly
- Something heavy or solid hitting your head
- Playing contact sports
- Fairground rides
- Road traffic accidents
- Falling from something such as a cycle
- Heavy lifting
You might want to make Allerdale whiplash claims after any accident like this that has damaged the soft tissues in your neck, causing a whiplash injury.
Recovering from a whiplash injury
A mild case of this self-healing injury will take just a few weeks to recover from, but chronic whiplash can take many months to get better and for some victims takes over a year.
For most victims of this type of injury, there will be no long-term effects. However, some are left with a weakness in their neck or back that can mean they are unable to do some of the physical tasks they normally did. This can affect their job, and their income.
