It does not matter where you live — you could suffer a whiplash injury at any place and at any time. If the accident was not your fault, then you may want to use the expert solicitors for whiplash injuries here at Accident Advice Helpline to help you to make an injury compensation claim against the people who are responsible.
Do you need to use expert solicitors for whiplash injuries?
One of the common ways in which you can sustain a whiplash injury is from a car going into the back of yours with force, although this is not the only way in which you can get this condition — in fact, you can get it by anything that causes a sudden jolt to your head.
It happens when your head and neck get a forceful jolt which moves your neck out of its normal comfort zone, either backwards, forwards or sideways. This will then cause damage to your tendons, ligaments and muscles in your neck, creating a whiplash injury.
If you have been in this situation anywhere else in your body, then you would be considered to have a sprain. If someone else caused this to happen, you would be entitled to use the expert solicitors for whiplash injuries at Accident Advice Helpline to make an injury compensation claim against the people responsible.
The signs of whiplash
The symptoms of whiplash can differ depending on how bad your injury is, but could include:
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs;
- Pain in the neck area and back;
- Stiffness to the neck;
- Nausea; and
- Blurred vision and dizziness.
You may be able to claim compensation if you are suffering these symptoms after an accident and the accident was not your fault.
The way to treat whiplash can be quite simple, but it does depend on the severity of your injury. Mild whiplash will clear itself up in a few weeks, as long as you have plenty of rest. For more severe whiplash, your doctor may advise treatment including:
- Neck brace;
- Physiotherapy; and
- Gentle exercise.
