    Beware! Whiplash! Do you need help from an injury lawyer in Whitehead?

    A common complaint that every injury lawyer in Whitehead sees, whiplash, is an injury endured by more people than you’d think on the roads of the UK. Whilst often being completely overlooked as a potentially dangerous condition to be struck down with, largely as a result of its regularity, whiplash causes a serious amount of pain and grief year on year.

    Just because it is not the most serious injury people involved in road traffic accidents walk away with, that does not mean that it cannot be a life-altering affliction. To put things into some form of perspective, an estimated 1,200 people file compensation claims built wholly upon whiplash injury in the United Kingdom every year. As a result, every injury lawyer in Whitehead to Whitby has become accustomed in dealing with cases of this kind.

    The symptoms of whiplash

    Perhaps surprisingly, the range of symptoms most commonly and prominently associated with whiplash injury is both extensive and intricate.

    At the top of the pile we have the more obvious intense stiffness in the back muscles and the neck, which of course stem from the force and impact of the incident (whether it was a collision or something else) itself and can last the longest of all the symptoms. Alongside this standard pain sit the more arbitrary side-effects of nausea, dizziness and headaches, symptoms which are of course associated with an entire array of medical conditions.

    Moving on from these highly common symptoms, we land upon some rather obscure and, depending on your standpoint, rather worrying and severity-implying side-effects. From blurred vision and muscle spasms to vertigo and prolonged tiredness, whiplash is a condition that possesses the potential to really interfere with an individual’s wellbeing. It is for this reason that so much emphasis is placed on informing people of their right to claim compensation if affected, whether with an injury lawyer in Whitehead or by organisations such as Accident Advice Helpline.
