    Flintshire accident at work claim

    Whiplash injury is much more than just a pain in the neck that may be caused following a work related slip, trip or fall.  Many victims of whiplash injury may not even realise that they have sustained this distressing condition until later that day, or even the following day after the accident has occurred. If you, or a colleague that you work alongside, have been diagnosed with a whiplash injury caused by a work related accident that was not your fault within the last 3 years’, then why not call the reputable team of advisers and injury solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to find out more about pursuing your Flintshire accident at work claim?

    What is whiplash injury?

    Whiplash is a painful and debilitating injury that can affect anyone of any age and background.  It is usually caused by an accident or incident that results in the neck being forced backwards, forwards or sideways under tension.  This forceful action can cause the delicate tendons, ligaments and soft tissues of the neck to become torn and damaged resulting in whiplash injury developing.

    Whiplash is usually diagnosed by a medical practitioner who can identify the symptoms and carry out a full physical examination and take a history of the condition.  However, unlike most other injuries caused by work related accidents, whiplash may not be apparent at the time of the accident, as symptoms usually develop 6-24 hours following an accident occurring.

    Whiplash symptoms

    Symptoms of a whiplash injury may include:

    • Severe pain across the neck, shoulders, back and upper arms
    • Stiffness across the neck, shoulders, back and upper arms
    • Inability to rotate the head in all directions without severe pain
    • Headache
    • Nausea
    • Listlessness
    • Dizziness
    • Insomnia

    Treatment for whiplash injury

    Whiplash injury needs urgent assessment and diagnosis, as any injury to the neck may result in serious neural damage.
