    Dorking is a historic market town in Surrey. Dorking lost its stagecoaches when the railways arrived, but then attracted wealthy residents who built large houses in and around Dorking, such as Denbies House and Pippbrook House (now with Council Offices in the grounds).

    The railways arriving also brought the first recorded cases of whiplash, although in those days they called it railway spine, because accidents on the railways were the most common way to sustain it.

    Whiplash accidents and using the best solicitors in Dorking

    Whiplash is an injury that is often a very painful and disabling condition.  If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault and suffered whiplash, you may be able to use injury solicitors in Dorking to make a personal injury claim. There are many ways that whiplash can happen, just some of them are:

    • A rear end shunt with another vehicle
    • Falling from your horse or cycle
    • Playing contact sports such as martial arts
    • Slipping, tripping or falling and banging your head
    • Some heavy or solid object hitting your head

    If any of these accidents happen to you, and the injuries you sustained needed medical attention, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    The signs of whiplash

    It is not unusual for the symptoms of whiplash to not start for a little while after the accident, sometimes the next day.  When your head is suddenly jolted it can damage the nerves and tendons in the neck, this is what causes whiplash and the symptoms can include:

    • Headaches
    • Backache
    • Pain in the neck area
    • Stiffness and lack of movement in the neck
    • Pins and needles in the arms and legs
    • Nausea
    • Tiredness
    • Muscle spasms
    • Blurred vision
    • Dizziness
    • Depression

    Mild whiplash will clear on its own over a few weeks with plenty of rest and a little gentle exercise. Severe whiplash is a different matter altogether.  It can take a very long time to heal and some victims never fully recover.
