Whiplash injuries may mean you need to use expert injury lawyers in Longridge
Whiplash is a very common injury that is usually associated with rear end shunts in cars, but there are other ways it can happen; in fact anything that causes a sudden jolt to your head will cause whiplash.
The sudden jolting motion causes damage to the tendons and ligaments in the neck area, thus causing whiplash. If this happened in any other part of the body it would be known as a sprain and you would still be able to use expert injury lawyers in Longridge to make a personal injury claim.
The pain of whiplash
The symptoms of whiplash vary according to its severity but can include:
- Pain in the neck area
- Stiffness to the neck
- Blurred vision
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs
If you are suffering these symptoms after an accident, and the accident was not your fault, you may be able to use expert injury lawyers in Longridge.
The treatment of whiplash
The treatment of whiplash is fairly simple and usually mild cases will clear themselves up in just a few weeks. Your doctor may advise that:
- You will need to rest your neck but should do some gentle exercise to keep it mobile
- Ice packs
- Neck Brace
Fortunately, whiplash is not a life threatening condition, but in its severest form can be life changing and takes a long period of time to heal. Some people never fully recover.
