The expert on whiplash claims – our injury lawyer in Prestwick

How whiplash happens

The sudden jolting of the head out of its normal movement zone, backwards, forwards or sideways causes whiplash, when the muscles and tendons in the neck get injured. Anywhere else in the body we would call it a sprain, but this is a sprain with a differences because the consequences can be severe.   Although car shunts are the most common cause, contact sports are not an unusual cause, in fact anything that creates the sudden jolt can create whiplash. If this happens to you in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a whiplash compensation claim, using an injury lawyer in Prestwick.

Tell the injury lawyer in Prestwick about your whiplash symptoms

The symptoms of whiplash vary greatly depending on the severity of the injury, but at its worst can include:

  • Pain in the neck area
  • Lack of mobility in the neck
  • Tenderness in the neck muscles
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Lower back pain
  • Numbness or pins and needles in the arms and hands
  • Muscle spasms
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Tiredness
  • Vertigo
  • Anxiety and depression

Dealing with whiplash

Most mild cases of whiplash will clear up on their own over a few weeks.  In spite of the pain, you should try to exercise your neck gently each day; this will help to keep it mobile and will help with the recovery.  Some people find a firm supportive pillow helps but you should avoid using more than one pillow.

More serious forms of whiplash may require physiotherapy and stronger painkillers.  With chronic whiplash, the length of time it takes to recover can be over a year; it can cause anxiety and depression that you should seek treatment for from your GP. There are some victims that may be using an injury lawyer in Prestwick, who never fully recover and are left with weakness in the neck and back.
