If you’ve been in a car accident in Bury St Edmunds, you may sustain a number of injuries such as whiplash.

Whiplash occurs when the head is thrown about violently during an impact such as a car accident, and as such, whiplash and concussions often develop simultaneously.
Whiplash from a car accident in Bury St Edmunds
Whiplash is a non-medical term to describe the damage done to the underlying tendons, muscles and nerves in the neck. During a collision, as your head is thrown around, your neck can suffer great injury, resulting in symptoms such as:
- Tingling in the arms and hands
- Pain and stiffness in the neck
- Tenderness and pain in the shoulders and back
- Swelling in the neck area
- Dizziness and trouble sleeping
In scenarios like car accidents, it’s common to hit your head during the collision, which can result in the onset of a concussion.
Concussion from a car accident in Bury St Edmunds
A concussion occurs when the brain comes into violent contact with the skull, and starts to swell.
There are varying degrees of concussion, but even a mild case can cause unpleasant side effects such as:
- Confusion and memory loss
- Difficulty speaking
- A ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Blurred vision
In serious cases, a concussion can lead to post-concussion depression, and impact every aspect of your life. If this has happened to you, don’t just settle for living with the consequences.
