    How do you get whiplash in Southwark?


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Southwark

    How do you get whiplash in Southwark? If you’ve been fortunate to live your life thus far without having sustained the condition, it will be quite likely that you’ll have little idea of the symptoms of whiplash, let alone how it is caused. Whiplash injuries typically cause pain, discomfort and swelling in the neck. This might not sound like the worst type of injury that it’s possible to sustain, but whiplash can be incredibly unpleasant and debilitating. If you’re unlucky enough to ever suffer a serious case of the condition, you will likely know all about it.

    Discovering how do you get whiplash in Southwark

    Whiplash injuries are caused when the soft tissue in the neck is damaged after the head has been thrown violently in one direction. Although most whiplash injuries in the UK are caused in road traffic accidents, any type of incident that results in an individual’s head being tossed with force from one side to another could inflict the condition.

    In some cases, the symptoms of whiplash might not come on in the immediate aftermath of an individual being injured. Some sufferers find that they are able to walk away from an accident relatively unscathed, only for the symptoms of whiplash to come on some hours later. If this were to happen to you, it will be advisable to seek out medical treatment as soon as you start to feel any sort of strange sensation in or around your neck.

    If you can prove that you sustained a whiplash injury in an accident that was not your fault, there will be a chance that you might be able to make a claim for 100% no win no fee* personal injury compensation. If you’d like to get a feel for the amount that you might be able to win, check out our claims calculator on this website.
