Entitled to a whiplash injury claim in Pyle?
Need to make an injury claim in Pyle? Whiplash is the term used to describe an injury to the neck. It is usually caused by a sudden jolt or impact to the head from any direction. Whiplash most usually occurs after during a road traffic accident, but it can also occur following:
- A head collision during an impact sport such as boxing or rugby;
- A trip, fall or slip where the head is jolted violently backwards or forwards; or
- Through being struck on the head by a heavy object.
The vigorous movement of the head causes an injury to the ligaments, tendons and muscles in the neck area. Frequent symptoms of whiplash injury include:
- Neck pain and stiffness to the surrounding area;
- Tender neck muscles;
- Reduction in neck mobility;
- Pain when moving neck; and

After an accident in which a whiplash injury has been sustained, symptoms can take between 6 and 12 hours to develop. The injuries may become much worse before they improve. Although the ligaments are not broken, a sprain can often take several months to heal. In a small percentage of people, the injury refuses to heal and can last more than six months, at which point the injury becomes chronic and can cause long-term troublesome and severe symptoms. Manifestations of chronic whiplash injury are:
- Pain and stiffness in the neck;
- Loss of balance;
- Pins and needles or numbness in the arms, hands and fingers; and
- Anxiety and/or depression.
