Whiplash can be a common injury from a road traffic injury. It is caused by a sudden jolt in movement, forcing your head to move quickly forward, backwards or to the side, stretching your neck and causing damage to your tendons.
After your accident you may experience tenderness, soreness or stiffness in your neck. You may have limited mobility and be unable to move your head without significant pain. Some victims experience headaches, dizziness or pins and needles in their arms. You may also experience pain in your shoulders and get muscle spasms.
Whiplash may not develop immediately after the crash and it may take a few hours to start experiencing it. Your pain is likely to increase over the following days. While you are unlikely to need a neck brace or collar, whiplash may be treated with painkillers, physiotherapy and specific exercises to help with your recovery.
If you suffered whiplash and saw a doctor for your injuries in the last three years then we would like to talk to you about making a road traffic injury claim in South Lakeland.
