Tintagel is a village in Cornwall. The village and nearby Tintagel Castle are associated with the legends surrounding King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The Knights, or King Arthur, may well have sustained a whiplash injury if they fell off their horse. Today it is more common to sustain such an injury in a rear-end shunt between two cars, or while playing contact sports such as rugby or boxing.
However it happens, if you sustain a whiplash injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to use injury lawyers in Tintagel to make a personal injury claim.
The discomfort of whiplash
The sudden jolting of the head backwards, forwards or sideways causes whiplash. This damages the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the neck and can be extremely painful. As well as the pain, the other symptoms that can be experienced are:
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs;
- Blurred vision;
- Depression; and
- Stiffness in the back and neck.
Any of these symptoms might not show until the day after an accident, but when they do you should seek medical attention to ensure that there are no other injuries.
The material things that can be itemised
Apart from pain, suffering and the trauma you have suffered, there are material things that can be part of your claim, including such items as:
- Loss of earnings;
- Travel costs;
- Extra medical expenses; and
- Any other extra costs or losses that are a direct result of the accident.
