Myths about whiplash, and injury lawyers in Kinnersley

One of the most common injuries suffered by people after a road accident is whiplash, and it is something you can claim compensation for. Many people, however, don’t actually understand whiplash fully, which can lead them to think that they have it when they don’t, or not to treat it correctly so that it heals as well as it can.

Whiplash is caused by the violent movement of your neck, forwards and backwards or from side to side. This is typical in a road accident and will need to be treated. Here are some of the most common myths about the condition.

Whiplash Injuries Affect Only Your Neck

A whiplash injury can affect your spine and back, as well as your neck. These areas of your body are very important and if damaged can leave you paralysed, so it is critical that you see a doctor as soon as you feel that you have sustained an injury which affects them.

You Can See Whiplash On An X-ray

Although in some cases you will be able to see a whiplash injury on an x-ray, if your xray comes back clear this does not mean that you are not suffering from whiplash.

Your doctor should be able to run a few other tests to find out if you are suffering from whiplash, and a medical assessment will prove this for your compensation claim.

You Need To Keep The Injury Still

Although if you have a spinal or neck injury you are likely to be put into a neck brace immediately, this is only to protect you in case you have a more severe spinal injury.

As soon as whiplash has been diagnosed, it is actually more important that you keep your neck moving so that it can strengthen up and get back to normal. Bed rest and refusing to move the injury will only prolong the symptoms.
