Injury lawyers for free claims advice in Thrapston
Do you need free claims advice in Thrapston? Whiplash is caused by a distortion in the neck when it is suddenly jolted backwards, forwards or sideways, damaging the muscles, tendons and ligaments. It can be caused in many ways including:
- A rear end shunt between two cars that jolts the occupants
- Being struck on the head by a solid or heavy object that causes the sudden jolting movement
- Any slip, trip or fall when the head gets knocked as the victim goes down to the ground
- A sudden blow to the head or neck during contact sports such as boxing or rugby
- Falling off a cycle, motorbike or may a horse
If you think you may have whiplash, or any other injury, as the result of an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim using injury lawyers in Thrapston.
Whiplash can be painful and disabling and you might want to use injury lawyers in Thrapston
You will be in no doubt if you have whiplash, although quite often the symptoms do not manifest themselves until the day after the accident. Depending on the severity of the injury, they can include:
- Pain in the neck area
- A stiff neck
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs
- Pain in the arms and legs
- Blurred vision
If you experience any of these symptoms after being in an accident, you should seek medical attention to ensure there are no other injuries such as fractured bones.
Treating a whiplash injury
Mild whiplash will usually clear over a few weeks, ice packs and painkillers will help control the pain until the neck has recovered. After a few days, a little gentle exercise to the neck area can also help. In the severest of cases, recovery can take many months, even years. Some sufferers never fully recover and are left with weakness in the neck and back areas. Sometimes physiotherapy and neck braces are used in the more chronic cases.
Whatever the cause or severity of your whiplash, if someone else caused the injury, you may have a case to make a personal injury claim, using injury lawyers in Thrapston.
