    Hurt in a car collision in North Dorset


    How do you get hurt in a car collision in North Dorset? Although many people have heard of whiplash, unless you’ve experienced it yourself, you’re unlikely to really know what it involves or how it can be best treated. Furthermore, many people simply do not realise how this might affect their rights under the law.

    How do you get hurt in a car collision in North Dorset?

    Whiplash is seldom serious, but can be extremely painful and debilitating. It happens when the tendons in your neck are stretched by a sudden movement – most commonly during a car accident. With a little time and light treatment it should resolve itself within a relatively short time, but that’s not always the case.

    If whiplash lasts for more than several months, it becomes categorised as chronic whiplash. If this happens the medical implications can be serious. It can be a severe and constant source of suffering for a prolonged period of time. Furthermore it can have a serious impact on your financial as well as your physical wellbeing.

    Imagine for a moment you’ve been forced to take time off work. Depending on the deal you’ve worked out with your employer, this can have a serious impact on your finances. If you’re unable to earn money at the same time as having to spend on things such as medical treatments you could quickly find yourself in trouble.
