Developed whiplash symptoms? Speak to injury solicitors in Chesterfield to make your claim
Whilst any accident can cause unpleasant and painful injuries, whiplash injuries can be particularly debilitating, as they can restrict movement of the head and neck and limit our daily activities. If the injuries are caused through an accident that wasn’t even your own fault, then you may quite rightly feel angry and resentful that you have been injured at all. If you have sustained whiplash injuries, then call the friendly team at Accident Advice Helpline for no obligation advice and guidance about claiming using their professional injury solicitors in Chesterfield.
I have hurt my neck. How do I know if the symptoms are whiplash?
- The symptoms of whiplash usually develop after a 6-12 hour period of time following an accident.
- The symptoms need to be checked out by a medical practitioner to rule out other more serious neck injuries.
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
- pain across the neck muscles
- muscular spasms
- restricted movement of the head and neck
- stiffness of the neck muscles
What are the causes of whiplash?
Whiplash may be caused by any sudden and violent movement of the head and neck which can cause the ligaments and tendons of the neck to become torn and stretched, causing pain and discomfort.
Certain types of accident are synonymous with the development of whiplash symptoms such as:
- road traffic accidents including collisions and rear end shunts
- riding accidents
- motorcycle accidents
- cycling accidents
- falls from height
- violent assault to the head with a heavy, blunt object
How long does whiplash take to heal?
Everyone is unique and the circumstances of their accident and injuries are also unique. However, many cases of whiplash recover on their own with simple rest and painkillers to aid pain management. If the symptoms don’t subside, then physiotherapy may be suggested to encourage healing and mobility.
