    Car accident injury claims in Stockton-on-Tees


    We all know how we should behave on the road, whether as a driver or pedestrian, but sometimes the mind wanders, distractions get in the way and before you know it, there’s been an accident. By far, car accidents are the most common and are usually a result of carelessness. If you have been involved in a car accident and someone else was at fault for causing it, you could be entitled to make car accident injury claims in Stockton-on-Tees.

    There are many types injuries which can be caused during a collision like this but some are more common than others. Often, people who have been involved in a road traffic incident experience an injury known as whiplash.

    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash is a very common injury which occurs when the head is jolted backwards and forwards during a collision. It is viewed as a minor injury, although it can cause a lot of pain to the victim. However, you would consider yourself lucky if you left an accident with only whiplash.

    How do you know if you have it?

    If you have persistent pain in the upper area, including the head, neck and shoulder after an accident, you probably have whiplash. The pain will often only last for a few weeks, but in some cases, it can last for months. The doctor may be able to conduct an examination to see if you have whiplash and this can be used as evidence as part of your car accident injury claims in Stockton-on-Tees.

    How do you treat whiplash?

    Whiplash is one such injury which tends to heal itself over time. The doctor may be able to prescribe you strong painkillers to help ease the pain but more often than not, it will go away of its own accord. A physiotherapist may also be able to help ease the pain a little but you should always seek medical help before embarking on your own course of treatment.
