Suffered a whiplash injury? Make a road traffic accident claim in Dacorum!
Whiplash can be a distressing injury which is commonly associated with being involved in a road traffic accident. Indeed, many people can develop the symptoms of whiplash many hours or even days after an accident occurs. In cases such as these, they may consider making a road traffic accident claim in Dacorum for the severe pain and discomfort that they have suffered.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is the term given to a soft tissue injury in the neck. In an accident, the neck can be violently and awkwardly thrust in any direction. This sudden movement can cause the delicate tissues of the neck to become overstretched and torn resulting in damage and trauma. Unfortunately, unlike other injuries caused in accidents, whiplash may not be immediately obvious at the scene of an accident. It may not be until many hours, or even days later, that the symptoms become apparent.
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
Whiplash victims often seek medical advice and treatment with symptoms such as:
- Severe stiffness of the neck, shoulders and upper back
- Inability to nod or rotate the head
- Severe pain and discomfort in the neck, shoulders and upper back
- Inability to sleep leading to insomnia
- Tenderness across the neck, shoulders and upper back
- Fatigue and listlessness
