For a whiplash injury, you might need an injury attorney in Newark-on-Trent

Whiplash is a very painful and sometimes disabling injury that is most commonly caused in car accidents. However, it can be caused by anything that causes your head to jolt suddenly out of its normal movement zone. If you sustain a whiplash injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim using an injury attorney in Newark-on-Trent.

The symptoms of whiplash

The symptoms of whiplash depend on its severity, but at its worst you could experience:

  • Neck pains;
  • Backache;
  • Headaches;
  • Nausea;
  • Pins and needles in the arms and legs;
  • Blurred vision;
  • Lack of mobility in the neck area;
  • Dizziness;
  • Tiredness; and
  • Depression.

If you have any of these symptoms after an accident, which can take a while to manifest themselves, you should seek medical attention and talk to an injury attorney in Newark-on-Trent about making a personal injury compensation claim.

The treatment of a whiplash injury

The main treatment of whiplash is rest so that the neck can heal. The sufferer may need painkillers and icepacks to relieve the pain, and neck braces are used occasionally, but they can affect mobility so should not be used all the time. Whiplash often gets worse before it gets better; the victim should be guided by the advice of their doctor, as they will know if anything such as physiotherapy is needed.

The long-term effects

Mild whiplash should clear over a few weeks, but severe whiplash can take a very long time and some patients never fully recover. There can be a weakness left in the neck and back areas, and sometimes other conditions such as complex chronic pain disorder can develop because of the whiplash. Your injury attorney in Newark-on-Trent will take account of all this, and a prognosis for your future health, when making your personal injury claim.
