Injury claim in Southport

Young Man suffering from whiplash after accident.

Making a whiplash injury claim in Southport?

Whiplash is a very common injury that is usually associated with rear-end shunts in cars, but there are other ways it can happen, such as:

  • Playing contact sports such as rugby, boxing or martial arts
  • Tripping or falling over and knocking your head
  • A solid or heavy object hitting your head

The sudden jolting motion that these things create damages the tendons and ligaments in the neck area, so causing whiplash. If this happened in any other part of the body it would be known as a sprain and you would still be able to make an injury claim in Southport.

Whiplash symptoms

The symptoms of whiplash vary according to its severity but can include:

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

If you are suffering these symptoms after an accident and the accident was not your fault, you may be able to make an injury claim in Southport.

How whiplash can be treated

If there is any possibility of a broken bone, you will be sent for an X-ray.  If not, the treatment is fairly simple:

  • You will need to rest your neck but should do some gentle exercise to keep it mobile
  • Painkillers
  • Ice packs
  • Neck Brace
  • Physiotherapy

Fortunately, whiplash is not a life-threatening condition but in its severest form can be life changing. In mild cases it will clear up by itself over a few weeks but severe cases can takes a long period of time to heal and some people never fully recover.
