Claiming for whiplash injury? Speak to injury lawyers in Sarre!

Whiplash is a particularly common, painful and distressing injury which usually develops after a road traffic collision, particularly one where your vehicle may have been involved in a multi-vehicle accident or a rear end shunt.  Irrespective of whether you are a driver, passenger or even pedestrian who has been unfortunate enough to have suffered an injury, the symptoms of whiplash generally become apparent about 6-12 hours after an accident occurred.

The violent and sudden jolting of the neck forwards, backwards and sideways can cause the ligaments and tendons in the neck to become damaged, causing the debilitating symptoms of whiplash to develop. The injury is similar to a sprain, and in fact anywhere else in the body, that is what we would call it.

Symptoms of whiplash

Whiplash symptoms vary, depending on the position of the casualty at impact and the type of accident that caused the injury.

  • Stiffness around the neck muscles
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Painful muscles
  • Muscular spasms
  • Restricted movement of the neck and head

Accidents causing whiplash

Accidents causing the symptoms of whiplash are not limited to road traffic collisions. They may also be caused by:

  1. Sporting injuries from high impact sports such as boxing and rugby
  2. Slips, trips and falls especially from height
  3. sudden blow to the head
  4. violent assault and head injury

Treatment and prognosis for whiplash symptoms

Whiplash symptoms should always be checked out by a medical practitioner to rule out other injuries.  From a physical examination, the doctor will be able to ascertain the diagnosis of whiplash and advise the course of treatment.

For mild to moderate symptoms the treatment usually involves rest and painkillers such as anti-inflammatory medications bought over the counter.  A neck brace may be offered to support the head and neck whilst the soft tissue injuries heal, but these should not be used for long periods as they can cause further difficulties with neck movement.
