Salford car crash

Red car damaged after accident

If you are unlucky enough to have been the faultless victim of a Salford car crash, and as a result got whiplash, then you should contact an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline, to assist you in making an injury compensation claim.

Generally, women are more likely than men to have any neck complaints, and if their neck is injured in a Salford car crash, it is likely to be more severe.  It is not known why women suffer more discomfort from neck injuries, but as well as being worse for females, they are more likely to happen to them.

The neck pains you suffer after a Salford car crash could mean you have a whiplash injury

The most usual cause of neck injuries is car crashes.  The most common of these is whiplash, which is very painful and can be disabling. This is caused by force of a rear end shunt making the head of the occupants of the front car to jerk suddenly backwards, forwards or sideways creating the perfect circumstances for a neck injury, and a perfect reason to make a personal injury claim.

How whiplash is diagnosed

There are no medical tests for whiplash, it is not even a medical term.  The official name for the injury is a sprain in the neck, and a doctor will diagnose this from the symptoms you relate to him and the knowledge that you have been in a recent Salford car crash.

If they have any doubt at all, they then may request MRI scans or X-rays to make sure you have not broken any bones or caused any other damage.

Once they are happy that it is a whiplash injury, they may give you painkillers to help but the best treatment is rest to allow the neck to heal.  A little gentle exercise can help to stop it stiffening, but you need to take care that you do not do too much.

In severe whiplash cases they may prescribe a neck brace to support your neck, but these should not be used for prolonged periods as they can affect your mobility.
