If you have sustained a neck injury, then there are many reasons why this could have happened. If you have sustained yours through no fault of your own, then you might be entitled to make a personal injury claim by using a lawyer in Thorpe Hamlet.
For some reason neck injuries tend to affect women more than they do men, particularly whiplash type injuries where the soft tissues in the neck have been damaged. The pain can range from mild aches to more serious burning pains that make victims very uncomfortable. Whichever pain you are suffering as long as you were not at fault, then you should speak to a lawyer in Thorpe Hamlet at Accident Advice Helpline about making a claim against whoever was responsible.
Causes of a neck injury and using an injury lawyer in Thorpe Hamlet
Neck injuries can be caused in a limitless number of ways, just some of them being:
- Injury or trauma
- A rear end shunt between two cars
- Falling of something, such as a bike
- Something heavy or solid hitting your head
Being involved in a road traffic accident
You can suffer whiplash if you have been involved in a road traffic accident. This normally happens when a car goes into the back of your car with force. This causes your head to suddenly jolt forwards, backwards or sideways, causing neck ligament injuries.
A whiplash injury can happen from other types of accidents as well, its not just road traffic accidents. Anything that causes your head to jolt suddenly, will cause this condition.
The signs of a neck injury
The signs can range greatly depending on the type of injury you suffer, and they may not manifest themselves immediately, although they could include:
- Pain to the neck area
- Pain in the arms and legs
- Pain in the back
- Numbness in the arms and legs, or pins and needles
- Anxiety or depression
- Muscle spasms
- Blurred vision
