Whiplash is a major player in the world of compensation, world wide there are over a million whiplash injuries that happen due to car crashes alone. However we suspect that figure to be higher, due to unreported incidents and other mishaps that could also cause you to end up with a whiplash injury in Abington.
The following are some of the possible examples of where a person might suffer such an injury:
- A ride on a rollercoaster
- A sports injury
- Injury from martial arts
- An aeroplane trip
- A train journey
- A bus ride
- A ride on a jet ski
All of the above could result in a whiplash injury, which can sometimes take an age to go, if indeed you are lucky enough to get rid of it. If you have it for more than 6 months it is known as “Whiplash Syndrome”.
There is no known cure for this ailment, the most tried and tested methods are anti inflammatory drugs and physiotherapy. People sometimes resort to acupuncture or massage, but in the wrong hands massage could have an adverse affect on your neck, so we would suggest you seek professional help. Doctors also advise some very light exercise as way of relief.
Other symptoms you may have after suffering a whiplash injury in Abington
Whiplash does not only affect the neck area it can leave you with headaches, nausea, backache even dizziness. These alone are bad enough, add whiplash to the equation on that just adds to the misery.
If you have had an accident through no fault of your own, if you needed medical treatment, and if the accident has taken place in the last 3 years you may be eligible for compensation.
