    Whiplash injury in Allerton Park

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Allerton Park

    Suffered a whiplash injury in Allerton Park?

    From time to time, everyone falls. Sometimes you may trip and fall due to being clumsy, whilst other times you may be injured through someone else’s negligence. Either way, if you feel yourself start to fall there are a few things you can do to ensure that you do not sustain a whiplash injury in Allerton Park, hurt your back or break any bones.

    You should always be aware of how to fall safely in case something happens that you do not expect.

    What’s the best way to protect yourself when you fall?

    The part of your body which you most want to protect at all times is your head. A broken bone will heal, and a whiplash injury in Allerton Park can be painful but not life threatening. However a head trauma can actually lead to death or permanent problems. As you fall, be aware of your head and try to keep it off the ground at all costs. If you fall downwards and your head is aiming for the ground, wrap your arms around it to cushion the blow. This may hurt your arms or wrists, but will stop your head from suffering a serious blow.

    If you are able to keep your head up of its own accord, try to break your fall with your palms. It is natural to ball your fists when you are afraid or shocked, but hitting the ground with a balled fist could break your wrists. Your palms will do more to absorb the shock of the fall and slow you down a little.

    If you have just fallen from standing then this shouldn’t be necessary, but if you are falling from a height then rolling as you hit the ground will stop one part of your body taking the brunt of your landing. Folding your body inwards and hitting your side before rolling can prevent a whiplash injury in Allerton Park and stop you from breaking any bones.

    When you are falling your entire body is likely to tense up, and this makes your body harder and more likely to receive breaks from your landing. If you breathe out as you fall then your body has no choice by to relax slightly, as this is a reflex action. Many people who pass out as they fall break less bones and are less badly injured than people who are alert and tense themselves before they hit the ground.
