    Torridge No Win No Fee Accident

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Torridge

    People who have never suffered from whiplash seem to think it is a bit of pain and stiffness in the neck that heals itself in just a few weeks. For a really mild case this could indeed happen, but there are also much more serious cases that last for months and put the sufferer through all sorts of symptoms, distress and inconvenience. But its does not really matter how severe you whiplash is, if it was caused in an accident that was the fault of someone else, you could be entitled to make a Torridge no win no fee* accident claim.

    The ways whiplash can be caused that could result in you making a Torridge no win no fee* accident claim

    There are an endless number of ways that you can sustain a whiplash injury, although most people relate it to a road traffic accident, but it could also be caused by:

    • Playing contact sports
    • Falling from something
    • Tripping over and landing awkwardly
    • Something solid hitting your head
    • Excessive pressure on he neck as can be caused by heavy lifting not done in the proper manner

    All that is needed for a whiplash injury is something to cause the ligaments and tendons in your neck to be stretched or torn, and it is because this can happen so easily that so many innocent victims make a Torridge no win no fee* accident claim.

    The other symptoms that victims suffer with a whiplash injury

    The pain and stiffness in the neck are the main symptoms of any whiplash injury, but in some cases, for the first few days at least, some sufferers also experience:

    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Tiredness through trouble sleeping
    • Blurred vision, dizziness and vertigo
    • Depression and anxiety
    • Pins and needles in the arms and hands that can turn to aches and pains
    • Pains in the lower back area

    These symptoms usually start to subside after a few days, but the pains and stiffness can continue for a very long time in the case of a severe whiplash injury.

    Eventually, whiplash injuries do heal themselves completely but they can leave other problems behind. Some victims are left with weakness in their neck or back, where others are left with a chronic pain syndrome. There is no cure for this and the victim does not know from day to day how bad the pain will be, but all that can be done is try and manage the pain as best they can.
