    Injury Claim in Lincolnshire

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Lincolnshire

    Whiplash is one of the most common injuries a personal injury claim in Lincolnshire is made for, simply because it is so easily sustained in an endless number of different ways.

    It is actually a sprain in your neck, caused by a sudden jolt or knock to your head that tears or stretches ligaments and tendons, creating the pain of a whiplash injury.

    Why whiplash results in a personal injury claim in Lincolnshire

    Although whiplash is an injury that is often scoffed at, in reality, it is very painful and disabling, and can cause the victim pain for quite a while. Some sufferers also experience:

    • Nausea
    • Headaches
    • Blurred vision and dizziness
    • Pins and needles in the arms and hands that can turn to aches
    • Lower back pain
    • Sleeplessness
    • Lack of mobility

    Apart from the pain and stiffness, most of the other symptoms disappear over a few days.

    Treating a whiplash injury

    For many years, the advice has been to rest, to let the injury heal, but recently that advice has changed. Now the medical profession are saying that a victim should stay as active as possible, as the activity helps the injury to heal. They also advise that although this may be uncomfortable, you cannot make the injury any worse.

    Painkillers and icepacks can help, but try to avoid a neck brace as this can create a longer term lack of mobility, which can only delay the recovery from your whiplash injury.
