    Whiplash injuries claims


    Whiplash injuries claims are a regular occurrence for any law firm that deals with personal injury claims, as they are one of the most common injuries to happen.

    The accidents that could result in whiplash injuries claims

    Any accident that causes a sudden jolt to your head can cause a whiplash injury, as this forceful movement can damage the soft tissues in your neck creating a whiplash injury. It could be:

    • A rear end shunt between to motor vehicles, or any other road traffic accident.
    • A fall in which you bang your head.
    • Something heavy knocking your head or shoulders.

    Accidents that cause these actions can happen in the work place, in public places or perhaps as the result of a criminal assault. Whichever way it happens, if someone else was to blame, then whip lash injuries claims are the way to get the compensation you may be entitled to.

    The problems you may experience from a whiplash injury

    With mild whiplash you should experience no more than a few weeks pain and discomfort in you neck, and in fact the NHS quote 32 days as the average time it takes for a mild whiplash injury to heal.

    Moderate whiplash takes longer to heal, but severe whiplash can take many months and leaves some victims with permanent effects. In its worst form, sufferers can also suffer from:

    • Dizziness, blurred vision or vertigo
    • Tiredness because of trouble sleeping
    • Headaches or migraines
    • Nausea
    • Pain in other parts of the body, particularly the back and limbs
    • Pins and needles, tingling sensations and numbness
    • Stiffness in the neck and back

    Not only do these other symptoms plague some victims, whiplash can have secondary problems such as chronic pain syndrome, which will never leave the sufferer. This means that they will have to manage constant pain for the rest of their lives, and may have to change their life style totally to cope with it.
