Do you have whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury that commonly occurs after a car accident.
When the car suffers an impact, the driver and passengers may be flung about violently, causing the weight of the head to place the muscles and tendons in the neck under strain. When this happens, they can become inflamed and sore, which is when whiplash occurs. The symptoms of whiplash can often take a few hours to materialise, but they can last for months and sometimes years after the accident. This type of injury presents a number of painful side effects, including:
- Trouble sleeping
- Pain and tingling in the neck, shoulders and arms
If you have succumbed to whiplash as a result of an accident caused by another driver, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.
