If you have sustained a whiplash injury after a Huntingdonshire car accident, our team of expert personal injury lawyers, here at Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim the compensation that is your right.
In order to start a claim for compensation, you will need to have been injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault and the accident must not have taken place any longer than 3 years ago because personal injury claims are currently time-barred.
What is whiplash?
If you are unsure whether you have whiplash, you may find the following information to be extremely useful:
Whiplash is a neck injury which is most commonly sustained by people whose vehicles have been shunted from the rear, causing their heads to jerk in a different directions, damaging the soft tissue and muscles of the neck.
A lot of times, you will not realise that you have sustained a whiplash injury immediately after you have an accident because it can take 12 or more hours for the symptoms to become apparent.
Common symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Swelling of the neck
- Shoulder pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Pins and needles
- Muscles spasms
In more severe cases, whiplash symptoms may be prolonged and cause symptoms which include:
- Permeant neck pain
- Blurred vision
If you experience any of these symptoms, you should make an appointment and visit your doctor as soon as possible. As well as giving you an official diagnosis and treatment plan, they will log your injuries in your medical records and this will be extremely helpful when you come to file a personal injury claim.
