Have you suffered from whiplash injuries? Do you need help from injury lawyers in Winchelsea?
Whiplash is often the painful result of a road traffic collision involving multiple vehicles or a rear end shunt from a vehicle colliding with your vehicle from behind. Although a relatively common injury, whiplash can cause long term consequences for the victim and may mean that they have to take time off work in order to recuperate.
What is whiplash and how is it caused?
Whiplash is the name given to the tendons, ligaments and muscles in the neck when they are torn and damaged through injury. The condition is usually the result of a sudden and violent jerking movement of the neck forwards, backwards or sideways. The tendons and ligaments become stretched and torn causing pain and discomfort. Anywhere else in the body we would call this a sprain.
Whiplash is often caused by a road traffic accident and can affect the driver, passengers and even pedestrians if they are struck by a vehicle and thrown over the bonnet of a vehicle. However, road traffic accidents aren’t the only cause of whiplash. It may also be caused through:
- high contact sporting activities such as boxing and rugby
- violent assaults where the head is struck with blunt and heavy objects
- riding accidents when the rider falls or is thrown from a horse and hits the ground hard
- motorbike accidents
- cycling accidents
- work related accidents such as falls from height
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
- pain and discomfort over the neck muscles
- stiffness of the neck
- restricted movement of the neck and head
