Back in the days in which were only a few cars about, or even before they were invented, whiplash injuries still happened, but would have been not as common as they are today.
There are other ways in which you could suffer a whiplash injury, because it happens so easily. Whiplash occurs when your head and neck receive a sudden jolt out of their normal comfort zones, either forwards, backwards or sideways. This causes the muscles and tendons in your neck to become damaged, creating what is basically a neck sprain.
If this has happened to you through no fault of your own, then you may want to make a personal injury compensation claim, and using an expert whiplash accident solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline is the simplest way in which to do this.
If you suffer whiplash, you may need to use an expert whiplash accident solicitor
Having the condition whiplash can affect your life a great deal. In the list below are some of the more common symptoms you may suffer. They are:
- Pain or pins and needles in your limbs;
- Sleepless nights;
- Dizziness and blurred vision;
- Pain in the neck area;
- Stiffness in the neck; and
- Lack of mobility.
You may need to speak to a whiplash accident solicitor if you have these symptoms after an accident that was not your fault, in order to make a claim for compensation.
How to deal with whiplash
A mild case of whiplash should heal itself without any medical treatment on its own within a few weeks, providing you have lots of rest. If you have severe whiplash, however, then this can take years from which to recover, and some people are even left with a permanent weakness in the neck and back.
