    Effects of whiplash in Sheffield


    Effects of whiplash in Sheffield

    There are numerous effects of whiplash in Sheffield, just some of them being:

    • Painful neck
    • Painful back
    • Painful arms and sometimes legs
    • Pins and needles or tingling sensations
    • Headaches
    • Sleepless nights
    • Stiffness and lack of mobility in neck and back areas

    Are you suffering from the effects of whiplash in Sheffield? Seek medical attention

    If you are suffering from the effects of whiplash in Sheffield, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention, whether this be with your GP or local hospital accident and emergency department. Most cases of whiplash will heal by themselves over time, but sometimes a scan, x-ray, or other tests may be needed if there is any possibility of a fractured bone as part of the injury. Medical reports can also form an important part of your case for claiming personal injury compensation.

    Listen and take heed of whatever the medical profession advise you to do to help the healing process, whiplash by its very nature can get more severe before it gets better so make sure you do as you are told. If this means complete rest and you lose time from work because of it, there is always the possibility of claiming loss of earnings as part of your compensation claim

    Chronic whiplash injury

    Some whiplash symptoms can be permanent, such as the stiffness and reduced mobility associated with this type of injury. Your compensation claim can be affected by how long the symptoms last, and if they are likely to be permanent, then this will be shown by the higher amount of compensation received.  This would have to be substantiated by an independent medical report.
