What is Whiplash and will I be able to make an injury claim in Sandtoft?
Whiplash is the term used to describe a neck injury, most often caused by the neck sustaining a sudden jolt of the head in any direction. It can be caused by an impact endured during a physical sport such as boxing or rugby or by receiving a blow to the head with a heavy object.
The most common cause of whiplash is when it occurs during the collision or impact of a road traffic accident. The severity of a whiplash injury can vary greatly. Often the symptoms of whiplash can take several days to appear.
What are the symptoms of Whiplash?
The common symptoms of whiplash are:
- neck pain and stiffness
- tenderness of the neck muscles
- restricted and painful neck movement
- pins and needles in the arms and legs
- dizziness and blurred vision
Women tend to be more affected than men by this condition and sadly there is no real treatment for whiplash as it is a self-limiting condition – meaning more often than not it gets better on its own accord sometimes with the aid of some basic medical treatment.
This is not to minimise whiplash as a minor injury in some cases it can last longer than six months and become chronic. When this happens whiplash can severely restrict your ability to carry out daily activities or participate in leisure activities. Simple tasks like cleaning the bath or a spot of weeding may now be too painful to even contemplate.
Perhaps you can no longer drive due to restricted head movements? Maybe you need extra help to keep your home tidy as a spot of light vacuuming is now beyond you.
