    Whiplash in Brighton


    Whiplash in Brighton

    You may end up suffering a whiplash in Brighton injury if you have been involved in an accident that was not through your own fault. If you find yourself in this situation then contact the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline so they can help you to make a personal injury compensation claim against the people who are responsible.

    A whiplash in Brighton injury may mean you need to use an injury lawyer

    One of the more common ways to sustain whiplash in Brighton is through a car accident, where someone goes in to the back of your car with force, although there are other ways in which you can suffer this injury as well; in fact anything that causes your head to suddenly move out of its normal comfort zone will cause a whiplash injury.

    The damage that a sudden jolt can have on your neck is that it will affect your ligaments, muscles and tendons. This is what we call whiplash, although if this type of injury happened anywhere else within your body, then it would be called a sprain.

    The other things you might suffer with whiplash in Brighton

    The pain of whiplash can depend on how severe your whiplash injury is, but there are other symptoms as well that could include:

    • Blurred vision
    • Pain in the neck area
    • Stiffness to the neck
    • Nausea
    • Headaches
    • Pins and needles in the arms and legs
    • Backache
    • Dizziness

    If you have any of these symptoms after an accident that was not your fault, you should seek medical attention and then contact the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline, so they can help you to make an injury compensation claim.
