Personal injury lawyer in Purfleet


A personal injury lawyer in Purfleet can help you with your whiplash injury claim

No matter where you live in the UK, you could be involved in an accident that causes you to have whiplash. If this is the case and the accident was caused by no fault of your own, then you should talk to a personal injury lawyer in Purfleet at Accident Advice Helpline.

The bad name of whiplash is unfair

Whiplash has a bad name. Many people think its not a proper injury — just ask them how painful it is if you sprain you knee or arm, then they might understand how painful whiplash is. It is basically a sprain in the neck and can be extremely painful and disabling.

If this has happened to you through no fault of your own, then you should make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Purfleet at Accident Advice Helpline.

The ways in which whiplash can happen

Whiplash can happen in all sorts of ways, some of the most common being:

  • Playing contact sports such as rugby or boxing;
  • A rear-end shunt in which the other car hits with such force that your head is jolted forwards, backwards or sideways;
  • Tripping over and hitting your head; and
  • Something heavy or solid hitting your head.

Anything that causes your head to suddenly move out of its normal zone can cause whiplash. If any of these things happen to you through no fault of your own, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.

What the signs of whiplash are

The sudden jolting of the head causes damage to the tendons and ligaments in the neck, which creates the symptoms of whiplash. These can vary depending on the severity, but can include:

  • Blurred vision;
  • Depression;
  • Pain and swelling in the neck area;
  • Stiffness to the neck;
  • Pins and needles in the arms and legs;
  • Headaches;
  • Nausea;
  • Backache; and
  • Dizziness.

There are no medical tests and no medical term for whiplash. The medical practitioner who gives your diagnosis will depend on your symptoms and the knowledge of recent trauma to the neck to make their diagnosis.
