Some, obviously the ones that have never suffered from it, scoff at whiplash. If they had experienced the injury they would know how painful it can be, and how it can make you suffer for quite a while. If you are lucky and the whiplash injury is a mild one, it could take just a few weeks to heal, but if it is a case of chronic whiplash it can take much longer to heal, and some sufferers never do fully recover.
If you have sustained whiplash in an accident that was not your fault, some time in the last three years, you should be speaking with injury solicitors about making a personal injury compensation claim.
How whiplash is caused
There are many reasons a whiplash injury can happen, it just needs a sudden jolt to your head forcing it out of it normal movement zone, and the ligaments, tendons and muscles in your neck become damaged. Just some of the ways this can happen are:
- Rear end shunt car accidents
- Slipping or tripping over and banging you head on the way down
- Falling off a cycle or horse
- Playing contact sports such as rugby or boxing
- Something heavy or solid knocking your head
Whiplash can happen in any type of accident, if it has happened to you, and you were blameless, you might want to make a whiplash injury claim using injury solicitors.
Plenty of rest is what is needed, together with a little gentle exercise to keep the neck mobile. In some cases of more severe whiplash, a neck brace is used for support, but long-term use of these is not recommended as they can affect the mobility of the neck area. Painkillers and anti inflammatory drugs are sometimes used to reduce the swelling.
