Many road traffic accidents cause serious and traumatic injuries to the casualties involved. One of the most common and debilitating injuries caused by being involved in a road traffic accident is a whiplash related injury. This type of injury may be caused by other types of accidents as well as well as road traffic accidents, but it is usually attributed to sustaining a trauma in a collision on the roads.
If you, or a member of your family, have been diagnosed with a whiplash related injury, through being involved in Mid Sussex road traffic accidents, caused through no fault of their own within the last 3 years, then they may be able to claim personal injury compensation.
What causes a whiplash injury?
Whiplash may be caused by being violently and suddenly jolted or jerked forwards, backwards or sideways. This can cause the neck to be overstretched or pulled in different directions under force causing the neck ligaments and soft tissues to be torn and overstretched.
Is a stiff neck a whiplash injury?
Whiplash injuries can be diagnosed by a medical practitioner and it is important that any injury or trauma to the neck or head are investigated by a doctor, as soon as possible after an accident or incident occurs to rule out serious neural damage.
Whiplash injury symptoms may take 6-24 hours to develop following an accident and may include:
- severe pain across the upper back,shoulders or neck
- swelling and tenderness across the neck
- inability to rotate and nod the head in all directions
- stiffness across the upper back, shoulders and neck
Treating a whiplash related injury
Whiplash needs to be diagnosed by a medical practitioner and their advice should be sought about treating this painful condition to ensure that your recovery is sustained.
Treatment may include:
- Resting the neck by lying in bed
- Applying ice to the neck to ease the swelling, tenderness and pain
- Taking regular doses of anti-inflammatory medications to reduce the symptoms associated with this debilitating condition
- Wearing a neck brace that fits tightly around the neck to provide support and protection whilst the tissues settle
- Undergoing simple exercises to restore function, strength and mobility of the neck tissues
