Whiplash is one of the most frequent injuries you can receive after being involved in a road traffic accident. If you were not to blame for the accident, Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Achnasheen.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash involves damage to the muscles, tendons and ligaments in and around the neck. In a car accident these are often stretched too far, and this causes pain and stiffness. It’s not unusual for the symptoms to appear a few hours after the accident, and they can last for a few weeks.
While not life threatening, you should visit a doctor as you may well need painkillers, and you may be given some exercises too. It’s best not to do any heavy lifting or stretching until it has healed, but your doctor will make sure you have the right advice to help you make a full recovery.
