    Have you developed painful whiplash following an accident? Let injury solicitors Great Strickland or another legal firm put your claim into top gear!

    Whiplash is a common injury that may be caused by being involved in a road traffic accident.  In a high impact collision or multiple vehicle accident, passengers and drivers may become injured and suffer trauma to their necks and heads.

    Whiplash occurs when the neck is suddenly and violently jolted backwards, forwards or sideways causing the ligaments and tendons in the neck to become stretched and torn.  It can cause debilitating symptoms for many weeks or even longer.

    Whiplash symptoms

    The symptoms of whiplash vary depending on the severity of the injury, but may include:

    1. Pain across the neck
    2. Stiffness of the neck
    3. Restricted movement and function of the neck
    4. Headache
    5. Nausea
    6. Insomnia
    7. Lethargy
    8. Depression

    How is whiplash diagnosed?

    Whiplash is diagnosed following an examination by a medical practitioner and a history of the circumstances which led to your injury.

    If there is doubt about the seriousness of the injury, then CT or MRI scans may be conducted to rule out serious injuries to the neck.

    Whiplash is not only caused by being involved in a road traffic collision. It may also be caused by:

    • A fall from height
    • A riding accident
    • A cycling accident
    • A motorcycle accident
    • A slip, trip or fall
    • An industrial accident

    How long does whiplash last?

    Whiplash often responds well to rest and gentle exercises to mobilise the ligaments once they have healed. However, soft tissue injuries can take longer to heal than broken bones and are often more painful. It is important to take the medical advice that you are offered to ensure that you don’t damage the neck further.
