One of the most common types of accident in the United Kingdom is a road traffic accident. Road traffic accidents can occur for a whole host of reasons but if you have been the victim of such an accident you might well have been left in a considerable amount of pain. While you will have been fortunate to walk away from the accident in question, your injuries may be such that you will experience long-term pain and discomfort that can often be the symptoms of whiplash.
How did you get whiplash?
Whiplash is a condition that can affect many individuals hurt in road traffic accidents as well as slips, trips and falls. You might be surprised to learn that slipping on a wet floor, or tripping over a cracked pavement can produce the same kind of injuries experienced in a car accident.
The symptoms of whiplash most commonly experienced are:
- Neck injuries
- Shoulder pain
- Upper back pain
- Jaw pain
The symptoms of whiplash above are of course the most common and may vary between victims. In most cases the condition will resolve itself but in those cases where it does not, referred to as chronic whiplash, the accident victim can experience long-term pain lasting six months or even longer.
Sadly for some individuals the after effects of whiplash can last a lifetime and leave them experiencing chronic neck and back pain that will never be cured. This makes the lives of those sufferers difficult and can even affect the way in which they are able to work and behave with their families.Open Claim Calculator
You’ve been left with chronic whiplash
Chronic whiplash is something that can last six months or much longer. For those who have found themselves struck down with whiplash they may have to readjust to life without being able to participate in certain activities. Not only is this physically debilitating but it can also be emotionally difficult to deal with as well.
If you have been the victim of an accident, car accident or otherwise, that wasn’t your fault and it has resulted in you being left with whiplash injuries then you could be entitled to compensation.
