Enfield accident at work claim


Whiplash is usually associated with the rear end shunt between two cars, but there are many other ways it can happen, because it is one of the easiest injuries to sustain. There are many ways it happens in the work place for instance, and many employees who need to make an Enfield accident at work claim because of it.

Why you might want to make an Enfield accident at work claim for whiplash

Whiplash is a very painful and disabling condition that can lay someone low for quite a while until they have recovered. For mild whiplash, this should only take a few weeks, and in fact the NHS cite just 32 days as the average recovery time for a case of mild whiplash.

Moderate whiplash can take a few months to recover from, but severe whiplash can take a very long time and often leaves the victim with weaknesses in the back and neck areas. There are other symptoms whiplash sufferers might experience in the first few days of the condition, which include:

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness and blurred vision
  • Headaches
  • Pins and needles in the hands and arms which can turn to numbness or pain
  • Tiredness
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Lack of mobility

Whiplash does not usually become apparent until a few hours after the accident, and often it is the next day before victims realise they have a problem.

The causes of whiplash and making an Enfield accident at work claim

Whiplash is one of the easiest injuries to sustain because all it needs is a sudden jolt to your head, or a stretching of the tendons and ligaments in your neck area. These actions cause damage to the soft tissues of the neck, which is what creates the pain of a whiplash injury.

In a work situation, heavy lifting could cause this, or may be a slip, trip or fall accident in which you bang your head as you fall – these things happen to thousands of victims every year while they are at work, and many of them sustain a whiplash injury.
