Common personal accident claims in Pitlochry – Whiplash

Whiplash is a general term that is used to describe an injury to the muscles, ligaments or tendons of the neck that is caused by a sudden jolting movement. Whiplash is a common injury in car accidents and often occurs if you are hit from the front, back or sides. The symptoms of whiplash do not always appear straight away- they can start around 6 to 12 hours after the crash. The whiplash symptoms usually go away themselves but many people need to take painkillers whilst it is resolving. The best thing is to keep your neck moving. Physiotherapy can also help. Some victims also suffer vertigo, dizziness and tiredness. If you cannot turn your head properly it may not be safe for you to drive and it is always advisable to go and see your doctor.
