Over the years a sprain in the neck has had several nicknames, the latest being whiplash. Before that it was known as railway spine because it was common to sustain it in rail crashes. No doubt there were other names for it prior to this, but whatever it was or is called, if it was caused in an accident that was not your fault, you should be considering personal injury claims in Thurrock for compensation.
Making personal injury claims in Thurrock for a whiplash injury
Most people relate whiplash to rear end shunts in cars but there are many other ways it can happen. Any sudden jolt to your head will damage the tendons and ligaments in the neck area, and create the pain and discomfort of whiplash.
The injury itself is self-limiting and will heal of its own accord given time. The real problems can arise when it causes such things as Complex Chronic Pain Disorder, a non-curable condition where the victim would be in pain daily for the rest of their life.
Whether you have a mild whiplash injury, chronic whiplash or one of the other disorders it can cause, if the injury was sustained in an accident that was not your own fault, you should be making a personal injury claim in Thurrock.
Other symptoms of a whiplash injury
In the early days of whiplash, there are symptoms other than the pain and stiffness in the neck that some victims experience. Although they do tend to start to subside after a few day, you may suffer from:
- Headaches and migraines
- Shoulder pain
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs that may turn to aches
- Blurred vision
The severity of your injury and how it has affected you will be accounted for when you are making a personal injury claim in Thurrock.
