    Torfaen industrial accident claim

    Has your accident become more than just a pain in the neck? It doesn’t have to be with advice from the leading experts!

    Whiplash is a common injury that can be caused by accidents and incidents in the working environment.  These types of trauma to the neck can result in long term and painful symptoms which can take extensive time to recuperate from.

    If you, or someone who you work alongside, have been injured through a work related accident within the last 3 years’, then you may be able to pursue a Torfaen industrial accident claim using the UK’s leading law firm, Accident Advice Helpline, to assist you.

    Whiplash injury

    A whiplash injury may be defined as any trauma to the neck caused by a sudden, awkward or violent movement of the neck in any direction.  This can mean that delicate, soft tissues of the neck are overstretched and become torn and damaged. The symptoms of a whiplash injury may not be apparent at the time of the incident and the victim may not be immediately aware of their condition.  However, within 6-24 hours following a work related accident, the symptoms of whiplash may become apparent and medical advice may be sought.

    Diagnosing a whiplash injury

    It is important that any trauma to the head or neck are investigated fully at the time of the work related accident to assess and examine the neck for signs and symptoms of injury.  If an injury is evident or suspected, then the casualty may be taken to an Accident and Emergency department for a full physical examination and diagnostic investigations.
