    Injury Solicitors in Cupar and suffering from Whiplash

    Whiplash is often sneered at as not a real injury but if you have ever suffered from it you will know how very real it is.  It can be severely painful and disabling, a condition that most victims will recover from in just a few weeks but from which some never fully recover.  It can leave weaknesses in the back and neck and cause other chronic pain disorders that leave victims in agony for the rest of their lives.

    It is caused by the sudden jolting of the head in all directions out of its normal movement area.  This damages the ligaments and tendons in the neck creating much pain for which the only thing you can do is rest and take painkillers.

    If you sustain a whiplash injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may want to talk to injury solicitors in Cupar about making a personal injury claim.

    How whiplash is caused

    The cause that most victims relate whiplash to is a rear end shunt in a car, but it can happen in any way that creates the sudden jolting of the head. Your head being knocked by a heavy object, falling over and banging your head, falling off a bike or a horse maybe.  They would all cause the problem.  It is not a new condition that appeared with cars.  Before their invention it was referred to as railway spine because the most common way to sustain it then was in a rail crash.  However it happened, if it was not your fault you should be asking injury solicitors in Cupar to start your personal injury claim.

    Whiplash symptoms

    It tends to be a few hours after the accident that the symptoms start to appear and they do depend on the severity of the injury.  At its worst it can include:
