Rushmoor road traffic accidents can be the cause of many different injuries, some of them life changing and some of them not so severe.
Whiplash injuries from Rushmoor road traffic accidents
Although whiplash can be caused in a multitude of different ways, the most common way is in road traffic accidents. It is a very painful and disabling injury that sometimes will last just a few weeks, but sometimes will last for many months.
Whiplash is a soft tissue injury that is basically a sprain in the neck, caused by a sudden jolt to your head the tears the ligaments and tendon in the neck area. Rest and exercise are the best way to help it heal, and most victims will have no long term effects. Some however are left with weaknesses in the neck and back after suffering a whiplash injury.
Losing a limb in Rushmoor road traffic accidents
To suddenly lose an arm or leg can be very distressing for the innocent victim of an accident. We tend to take all our body parts for granted, and it is only when one of them is lost that we realise how difficult life can become.
The advances in prosthetic limbs over the last few years will help a great deal in this situation, but the victim still has to learn how to use them, and go through the stress of the whole situation.
Brain injuries from Rushmoor road traffic accidents
The mildest of these is concussion and the most serious is a penetrating brain injury where something breaks through the skull and enters the brains tissues, causing untold damage.
The life of a brain injury victim will never be the same again; even concussion can have effects that they are left with for the rest of their lives. It is not only the victim that is affected, those close to them also have their lives turned upside down by an injury such as this.
Facial injuries from road traffic accidents
Facial injuries can be so obvious, particularly if the injury leaves a scar that the victim becomes anti social, as they are so aware of the way they look. Plastic surgery can help in this situation, but it is not always available on the NHS. Private medical treatment can be claimed if your quest for compensation is successful, in situations such as this.
