How did your car crash in Beeston cause whiplash?
Whiplash injury is caused by a rapid, uncontrolled snapping back and forth of the head, usually as the result of a sudden impact. It can also be caused by a side to side snapping action too. It happens as a result of the muscles, tendons and soft tissues of the neck being stretched beyond their normal limit.
In most instances the injury is not apparent at the time of the incident but often materialises the next day once the head and neck have been relatively motionless during overnight sleep. Once diagnosed, the most effective treatment is to try and move the neck as much as possible to try and regain mobility. You will normally be given pain killers by your GP to help with the discomfort.
Whiplash injury normally resolves itself within a matter of days. However when you first notice the symptoms it is important to go and see your GP because if you do decide to raise a compensation claim, one of the provisos of doing so is that you must have received medical attention for your injury.
Although most cases of whiplash cure from a car crash in Beeston cure themselves within a couple of weeks, more severe cases can last months and even years. The longer the injury symptoms remain, and the more distress and discomfort they cause, the greater the amount of financial compensation you will receive. Compensation claim amounts for whiplash can vary anywhere from £1,000 to over £90,000 when spinal damage is involved.
