Compensation claim in Sherborne – What is whiplash.

If you have suffered a motoring accident you may well have suffered from an injury called whiplash. Whiplash refers to strain on the neck and lumbar region caused by a sudden forward movement more often than not from behind. The modern seatbelt holds us in place so should someone hit our car from behind gravity wants to throw us forward while we are being held still. The result? Our head and neck, the only part that is not restrained snaps forward and damages the ligaments in our upper spine.

How does it feel?

Anyone who has suffered a whiplash injury will tell you that it can be extremely painful. Pain can also travel; as far down the spine as the mid lumbar region and sufferers will find that they have minimal movement in their neck and upper back. Extreme cases can cause giddiness and lack of balance and many people find it impossible to do anything other than rest. Whiplash heals with time and treatment to ease inflammation; there is no magic cure and damage may be long term.

What can I do if I suffer from a whiplash injury?

Whiplash injuries are one of the most common complaints that companies such as Accident Advice Helpline have to deal with.
