Using an injury lawyer in Portballintrae for your whiplash injury claim
Portballintrae is a small seaside village in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. In the 2001 census it had a population of 734 people. Portballintrae was originally a fishing village; a cluster of whitewashed cottages nestled around the horse shoe-shaped Ballintrae Bay. Many of its earlier buildings have been restored and maintained. The original village houses were built in a line along the seashore and many old cottages still stand on the shore.
Even the mildest form of whiplash may mean you want to use an injury lawyer
The mildest cases of whiplash will heal themselves over a few weeks with no medical intervention. The sudden jerking of your head forwards, backwards, or sideways causes a whiplash injury that damages the ligaments and tendons in your neck. In any other part of the body this would be called a sprain. Although no medical treatment would normally be needed, you should still see your doctor so they are aware of the injury. If you sustained whiplash in an accident that was not your fault, as well as speaking to your doctor, you may want to speak to an injury lawyer in Portballintrae.
The more serious cases of whiplash
More serious cases of whiplash can be devastating, and life changing. It can create a whole lot of symptoms other than pain and stiffness to the neck, such as:
- Pain in your other limbs
- Back pain
- Numbness to your limbs
- Pins and needles to your limbs
- Lack of mobility
- Inability to do simple things for yourself like getting dressed and undressed
- Anxiety and depression
Some of the symptoms can take months to heal; for some people the damage is a permanent leaving weakness in the neck and back. Whether a mild or serious case of whiplash, if someone else caused the injury, you should consider making a personal injury compensation claim, using an injury lawyer in Portballintrae.
