    Best injury solicitors in Giffnock

    Giffnock is a suburban town in Scotland. Although heavy industry died out in the area during the early twentieth century, as part of Scotland’s densely populated Central Belt, Giffnock has continued to grow as a dormitory town, supported by its position within the Greater Glasgow area, from roughly 1,425 residents in the early twentieth century to 16,178 in 2001.

    Out of over 16,000 residents, there are bound to be some that have been injured in accidents that were not their fault, and possibly sustained a whiplash injury. If this has happened and the accident was no more than three years ago, they may be able to use the best injury solicitors in Giffnock to help them make a personal injury claim.

    The effects of whiplash

    Whiplash is a pain in the neck, literally. It is caused by a sudden jolt to the head, which damages the muscles and tendons in the neck and is very painful and disabling. A mild case will clear in a few weeks, but chronic whiplash can last a very long time and some victims never fully recover from its effects.

    The symptoms of whiplash vary according to the severity of the injury, but you may experience:

    • Pain in the neck area
    • Stiffness to the neck
    • Vertigo
    • Nausea
    • Headaches
    • Backache
    • Blurred vision
    • Dizziness
    • Pins and needles in the arms and legs
    • Pain in the arms and legs

    There are no medical tests for whiplash itself, but if the doctor suspects there might be other problems, they may send you for further tests.

    Treating a whiplash injury

    Treating whiplash depends on how bad your injury is but could include:

    •  Painkillers
    •  Ice packs around the neck area to reduce any swelling
    •  Neck brace
    •  Severe cases often have physiotherapy

    The main thing is resting the neck, but you also need to keep it mobile. Gentle exercise will help keep your mobility, build up slowly, though, otherwise, you will hinder your recovery rather than help it.
