North Somerset is a beautiful part of the UK. Sometimes, even if you have nowhere to go, it is lovely to just take a drive around the local area and enjoy the stunning surroundings you are lucky enough to live in.
For careful and responsible drivers such as yourself, it is understandable that you would expect your fellow road users to extend the same courtesy to you that you offer them. But not everyone is as safe on the road as you, and not everyone has the necessary respect for their fellow road users. However cautious you are, if somebody else is driving recklessly, sometimes an accident is unavoidable.
It is not your fault that such an accident occurs, but you are still forced to deal with the repercussions. One of the most common injuries sustained in a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash injuries are debilitating and incredibly painful.
Suffered whiplash from a car crash in North Somerset?
A whiplash injury can often be difficult to spot immediately after a car crash, as symptoms do not always show themselves straight away.
If the crash you are in involves your head being forced rapidly forwards then backwards, or from side to side, such as being rear ended by another driver, then whiplash is a risk. If you experience stiffness or restricted movement in your neck, pain when moving your head, or migraine like headaches, then whiplash is a definite possibility.
Whiplash is a non-medical umbrella term defining neck injuries caused by a sudden jolt to the head. Injuries can range in severity and due to it being difficult to spot early on after an accident, you should seek immediate medical attention.
You deserve to be compensated
A whiplash injury can have a huge impact on your life. This is normally a short term issue, but there are times when the injury can be so severe that months of physiotherapy and rehabilitation are necessary.
