Making an injury claim in Pewsey


Whiplash can lead to an injury claim in Pewsey

Whiplash in any other part of the body, we would call a sprain. That’s basically what it is. The head gets a sudden jolt, backwards, forwards, or sideways and the ligaments and tendons in the neck are injured. This can often be the cause of a whiplash injury claim in Pewsey.

The effects of whiplash and why you would make an injury claim in Pewsey

The symptoms of whiplash can be mild and recovery take just a few weeks, or very severe and last a very long time. Some people never recover from whiplash totally. The sort of symptoms you may suffer can include:

  • Pain in the neck area
  • Stiffness to the neck
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Backache
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness
  • Pins and needles in the arms and legs
  • Pain in the arms and legs

There are no medical tests for whiplash and the doctor will base his diagnosis on the symptoms and the knowledge of your recent accident. Once he has diagnosed the condition, you are able to make an injury claim in Pewsey.

The treatment of whiplash

Treating whiplash depends on the severity but most people will be:

  • Given painkillers
  • Told to put ice packs around the neck area to reduce any swelling
  • May be given a neck brace
  • Severe cases often have physiotherapy

The main thing is resting the neck, but you also need to keep it mobile. Gentle exercise will help keep your mobility, build up slowly though otherwise you will hinder your recovery rather than help it.

The cause of whiplash

The most common cause of whiplash is a rear end shunt in a car. If this happens with enough force, the head will be jolted and whiplash sustained. There are other ways though of receiving the same injury, such as:

  • Falling from a horse or cycle
  • Playing contact sports  such as boxing, football or rugby
  • Falling over
  • Something heavy hitting your head

If any of these, or any other accident, happen to you and you are blameless, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Pewsey.
