    Injury solicitors in Comrie

    If you are involved in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, and the injuries you sustained needed medical attention, you may want to speak with injury solicitors in Comrie about making a personal injury claim, providing the accident happened within the last three years.

    The most common injury resulting from a car crash is whiplash.  The sudden jolting of the neck, which damages the tendons and ligaments, causes it and 78% of all motoring claims are for whiplash. If this happens to you, and the accident was not your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury claim.

    Injury solicitors in Comrie and the causes of whiplash

    The most common cause of whiplash is one vehicle going into the back of another, causing a sudden impact which jolts the occupants of the front vehicle, but it is not the only cause by any means.  You could get whiplash from:

    • Playing contact sports such as boxing or rugby, or maybe taking part in martial arts
    • Knocking you head in a slip, strip or fall
    • Falling from your horse or cycle
    • Having something heavy or solid hit your head
    • Anything that makes your head jerk suddenly distorting your neck

    If anything like this happens to you through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using the services of injury solicitors in Comrie.

    Whiplash symptoms

    The symptoms of whiplash vary greatly, the more severe, the more of the symptoms you will experience. The condition does not always manifest itself until a few days after the accident, but when the symptoms start to show you should seek medical treatment, not jut to aid your injury claim, but to help make your recovery as easy as possible and so that other problems can be investigated.

    Some of the most common symptoms are:

    • Pain in the neck area which can also be stiff
    • Back pain and stiffness
    • Pains or pins and needles in arms and legs
    • Tiredness and trouble sleeping
    • Dizziness and blurred vision
    • Vertigo
    • Ringing in your ears
    • Jaw pain
    • Headaches
    • Nausea

    A mild case of whiplash may heal in just a few weeks, moderate whiplash a few months and chronic whiplash much loner. In fact, some victims never fully recover from chronic whiplash, it can leave weaknesses in the back and neck.
