Unfortunately, being involved in a car accident is not uncommon these days. As more drivers take to the roads; road traffic accidents are on the up. One of the most common injuries that people suffer from when involved in a car accident is whiplash. It does not matter how fast the car was going, whiplash can still happen.
Whiplash can be a very serious injury. However, there are people out there who believe that victims of car crashes may fake having whiplash. Sadly, there are many people who think that whiplash is an injury that is easy to fake and that it is not serious. The truth of the matter is that whiplash can happen even if the car has only experienced a small bump. The crash does not have to be major to experience whiplash.
Whiplash Can Cause Excruciating Pain
There have been many serious cases of whiplash where the victim has experienced damage to the soft tissue around their neck, back and shoulders. Other areas affected by whiplash are the bones and joints. Whiplash can bruise the soft tissue as well as ligament damage which usually requires x-rays and specialist scans such as an MRI. This can become costly, but that is why you should make a claim for compensation through an injury solicitor.
In severe cases of whiplash, people have suffered from the following:
- Pins and needles
- Excruciating pain
- Difficulty sleeping
- Muscle pain
Many people find getting into a comfortable sitting and sleeping position difficult, meaning they are not able to rest or sleep. As well as causing irritability, many people who suffer from accidents experience an emotional level of trauma due to various factors. The accident could have caused shock, or the person could be struggling financially. If the accident that you were involved in was not your fault and took place within the past three years, you should get in touch.
