    Morecambe is a town on Morecambe Bay in Lancashire.  The town grew in the late 19th century and early 20th century as a popular seaside resort. In 2001, it had a population of 38,917. In 1846, the Morecambe Harbour and Railway Company was formed to build a harbour on Morecambe Bay, close to the fishing village of Poulton-le-Sands, and a connecting railway.

    Neck injuries cause women more bad effects, so they are more likely to need an injury lawyer in Morecambe if they have whiplash

    If women sustain any sort of neck injury, including whiplash, the condition will cause them more suffering than a similar injury would in a man. If that accident was not their fault, they may be able to use an injury lawyer in Morecambe in order to make a claim.

    The most common cause of whiplash is a car accident

    Car accidents, particularly rear-end shunts, often cause neck injuries, particularly whiplash. This is caused by the force of the shunt causing the head of the occupants of the front car to jerk suddenly backwards, forwards or sideways, forcing the tendons and ligaments to move outside their normal movement area.

    How whiplash will make you feel

    Whiplash symptoms vary greatly depending on how bad the injury is and sometimes do not manifest themselves immediately, but they can include:

    • Pain to the neck area;
    • Pain in the arms and legs;
    • Pain in the back;
    • Numbness in the arms and legs, or pins and needles;
    • Headaches;
    • Anxiety or depression;
    • Muscle spasms;
    • Dizziness;
    • Tiredness;
    • Blurred vision; and
    • Vertigo.

    Mild whiplash will clear over a few weeks, but in its severest form it can take a very long time and some victims are left with lifelong effects.
