Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in car accidents, which can cause serious damage to the neck.
It is one of the most common insurance claims and usually occur when a car or other vehicle is hit from behind. This article will look at the effect of whiplash from a car crash in Norfolk in more detail as well as offer advice on making a claim for compensation for your whiplash injury.
Whiplash is a condition caused by a sudden jolt which then causes symptoms such as pain in the neck and shoulders as well as back pain and can also lead to cognitive conditions. Whilst it is a common injury from road traffic accidents, it doesn’t always present itself immediately following an accident, and symptoms may not appear for a few days. Once they do appear however, they can take weeks or even months to heal with some cases of whiplash lasting six months or more.
Whiplash is usually treated in the first instance with a foam collar, whilst other treatments include physiotherapy, specialist exercises and others which are designed to restore mobility to the neck and ease pain.
