Finding out causes of accidents in Caerphilly and how to claim
If you have recently had a road traffic accident, this is probably how you got your whiplash injury. However, it can also be caused in other accidents and incidents.
You can suffer whiplash as a sporting injury – this is especially likely in contact sports such as rugby or martial arts. If you suffered the injury because of someone else’s fault – we may be able to help you start a claim. All you have to do is call us. The injury may have been caused by a lack of training or supervision or may be down to faulty equipment. These are all factors that can prove that another person caused the incident in which you were hurt.
You can also suffer whiplash in an accident at work. If you suffered a slip, trip or fall, it is easy to see how your neck could have been violently jolted and this is what caused whiplash. If you fell over something that should not have been there, such as a trailing cable, we may be able to help you to start a personal injury claim. The same applies if you slipped over a substance that should have been cleaned away.
How does it feel to have whiplash?
It feels very painful and uncomfortable! Whiplash is not considered to be a very serious neck injury as it does not involve the bones and most people recover within a few weeks. However, it causes a lot of pain and stiffness in the neck and even pins and needles and numbness in the arms and hands. Some people also get headaches and even anxiety and depression. In the more severe cases of whiplash the symptoms can go on for months and may require an intensive course of physiotherapy to sort it out.
