If you suffer a neck injury from an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to make an injury compensation claim, using the solicitors in Hindhead at Accident Advice Helpline to help you.
The solicitors in Hindhead explains a pain in your neck
Neck injuries tend to affect women more severely than men and they can happen in all types of ways. A neck injury is extremely painful and can be disabling. If you have suffered a neck injury within the last 3 years, that was caused by someone else, then you may wish to speak with solicitors in Hindhead to assist you in making a personal injury compensation claim.
The majority of neck injuries are whiplash
A whiplash injury or a neck injury can be caused by a car running into the back of your car with force. This is a common accident to have and a common injury to suffer.
The forceful jolt to your head making it move suddenly forwards or backwards or sideways can result in damaging the tendons and ligaments in your neck. If you had this injury any where else in the body then it would be called a sprain, however in your neck it is called whiplash.
Other ways to get a neck injury
The other ways to get a neck injury could be through a sports injury, falling over and knocking your head, or if an object hits your head quite hard. Any sudden movement that causes your head to jerk out of its normal zone can have the same affect. Not all neck injuries are whiplash, you could have broken a bone in your spine or dislocated a disc.
You will know if you have whiplash
It can sometimes take some time for the symptoms of a whiplash injury to manifest themselves. It will depend on how bad your neck injury is to what symptoms you will suffer, but you can have:
- Muscle spasms
- Dizziness and blurred vision
- Pain to the neck area
- Pain in the arms and legs
- Pain in the back
- Numbness in your limbs, or pins and needles
- Anxiety or depression
You might have whiplash and need to make a whiplash injury claim using the solicitors in Hindhead, if you are suffering these effects after being the blameless victim of an accident.
