    Injury claim in Southwell


    Whiplash is painful, and if sustained in an accident may need an injury claim in Southwell

    Whiplash is a range of injuries in the neck usually caused by a sudden shock or distortion of the neck area. It is most commonly associated with rear-end shunts in car accidents but can also be caused in many other ways, such as:

    • Being struck on the head by a solid or heavy object;
    • Any slip or fall that creates a sudden shock to the head; or
    • A sudden blow to the head or neck during contact sports.

    If you think you may have whiplash, or any other injury, as the result of an accident that was not your own fault, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Southwell.

    The pain of whiplash can be disabling, so you may need to make an injury claim in Southwell

    There are several symptoms sufferers can experience, some of which are:

    • Pain in the neck area;
    • A stiff neck;
    • Pins and needles in the arms and legs;
    • Pain in the arms and legs;
    • Backache;
    • Headaches;
    • Nausea;
    • Dizziness;
    • Blurred vision; and
    • Fatigue.

    The best course of action

    The first thing you need to do is rest and let the neck start to heal. Icepacks and painkillers may help with this. After a few days, a little gentle exercise to the neck area can help. It will improve the mobility of the neck, but don’t overdo it or you will cause more problems. Most cases will heal themselves over a few weeks, but in the most severe of cases recovery can take many months or even years. Some victims never fully recover and are left with weakness in the neck and back areas.

    Whatever the cause or severity of your whiplash, you may have a case to make an injury claim in Southwell for personal injury compensation.
