What is whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury primarily affecting the tendons and muscles in the neck, and occurs after an impact has caused the head to be thrown around back and forth, or side to side.
A common injury sustained in car accidents, whiplash can also develop as a result of a fall, or a falling object coming into contact with the head. Whiplash symptoms can take a while to onset, but when they do, they can be incredibly painful and debilitating. Those suffering from whiplash could be faced with anything from neck and back pain to tingling (or “pins and needles”) in the arms and hands, back stiffness and more.
Depending on the severity of the injury, it can take weeks for whiplash symptoms to subside, while in other cases it can take a matter of months. In rare cases, whiplash victims can continue to suffer the effects up to a year after the accident.
If you have sustained a whiplash injury in a car accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim. If you are thinking about making a claim and want advice from a trusted law firm in Vale of Glamorgan, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today.
