Entitled to a whiplash injury claim in Salford Quay?
Have you recently been involved in a road traffic accident and sustained a whiplash injury? If the accident occurred within three years and was caused through no fault of your own then you may be entitled to receive compensation.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is a non medical term but is used to describe a neck injury caused when the head is violently jolted forwards, sideways or backwards (often during a road traffic accident) and causes damage to the neck muscles, ligaments and tendons. Whiplash can also be sustained if someone receives a blow to the head with a heavy object or during physical contact such as whilst playing rugby or during a boxing match. Whiplash symptoms can take 6-12 hours to develop and to begin with symptoms may appear minor but it is common for injuries to become worse before they get better. Common symptoms of whiplash injuries are:
- neck pain and stiffness to the surrounding area
- tenderness of the neck muscles and surrounding area
- limited neck movements
- painful neck movements
Following a whiplash injury it may be helpful to make an appointment to see your GP. They will be able to examine the affected area and determine the level of injury sustained. They will be able to assess the range of movement and examine the muscles and extent of their spasm. They can provide you with appropriate analgesia to reduce pain and assist with the inflammation. If you suffer from any of these whiplash symptoms following an accident that wasn’t your fault you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Salford Quay.
