If you have sustained whiplash in the last three years in an accident that was not your fault, then maybe you should be speaking to a law firm in South Holland about making a personal injury claim.
People who have never suffered from a whiplash injury can have no idea of how extremely painful it is, or the effects it can have on someone’s life. If the whiplash injury is a light one, then you have been lucky and it will heal in just a few weeks; but some can take much, much longer to recover, and in the worst cases you may never make a full recovery.
Whiplash is caused in many scenarios in which a sudden jolt pushes the head forwards out of its normal zone, damaging the ligaments and muscles in the neck. Some of the ways this can happen include:
- Falling off a horse or bicycle;
- Car accidents causing a rear-end shunt;
- Tripping or slipping over and banging your head on the way down; and
- Contact sports.
Really though, whiplash can happen in any accident. It could have happened to you, and you may want to make a claim using a law firm in South Holland if you were blameless.
There are different types of treatment for whiplash, from light and gentle exercises just to keep mobile, to complete rest. Painkillers and other anti-inflammatory drugs are very effective, but would not provide a long-term solution. In very severe cases, a neck brace is used to support the injury.
