Have you suffered the pain of whiplash? Speak to injury solicitors in East Worlington to make your personal injury claim!
Whiplash is an injury that is often synonymous with road traffic accidents as it is often caused by being involved in a collision as a driver, passenger or pedestrian. Whiplash is caused by a sudden and often violent jerking of the neck in a forwards, backwards or sideways movement. This jolting can cause the tendons and muscles of the neck to become stretched and torn causing pain and discomfort. It is the sort of problem that if we had it anywhere else in our body we would call it a sprain.
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
Whiplash symptoms develop after a period of time following an accident. They are not immediate and may take 6-12 hours to develop. They may include:
- Pain over the neck muscles
- Stiffness of the neck
- Restricted movement of the neck
What types of accident can cause whiplash symptoms?
Although road traffic accidents are the commonest cause of whiplash symptoms, they aren’t the only cause.
- Riding accidents
- Motorbike accidents
- Cycling accidents
- Falls from height
If any accident that was not your fault causes you a whiplash injury you may be able to make a personal injury claim.
How is whiplash treated?
Whiplash is diagnosed following a history of the accident and a physical examination. The treatment for mild whiplash is rest and painkillers to allow the damaged tissues to heal. Moderate symptoms may be treated with a neck brace to support the neck whilst the tissues settle and heal. Physiotherapy may be recommended to restore function and movement. However, symptoms may be persistent and require ongoing treatment, some victims never fully recover.
