Personal injury lawyer in Keswick
You may be able to make a claim using our personal injury lawyer in Keswick even if your whiplash is mild, as it will still mean several weeks of rest and discomfort.
Whiplash is caused by a sudden jerking of your head forwards, backwards or sideways in an accident, which can cause damage to ligaments and tendons in your neck. The recovery time and treatment of your injury will depend on it’s severity.
If you had this kind of injury anywhere else in the body it would be called a sprain, and although you should not need medical treatment, you should still see your doctor so they are aware of the injury. You may want to speak to the personal injury lawyer in Keswick if your accident that caused the whiplash was not your fault.
What if your whiplash is serious?
If your whiplash is more serious then it could be devastating and life changing, the symptoms could also be more than a stiffness to your neck and pain, such as:
- Lack of mobility
- Blurred vision and dizziness
- Inability to do simple things for yourself like getting dressed and undressed
- Anxiety and depression
- Pain in your other limbs
- Back pain
- Numbness to your limbs
- Pins and needles to your limbs
If your case is serious then the damage could leave permanent weakness in your neck and back, or could take months to heal. No matter how bad the whiplash is, if your injury was caused by someone else you should consider using the personal injury lawyer in Keswick to make a compensation claim.
