A whiplash injury in Alva can be very painful, but if it was caused by someone else’s actions, you could make a claim for compensation. The legal experts at Accident Advice Helpline could help you.
The most common cause of whiplash is a road traffic accident, but any accident which causes the head to move violently can cause this injury.
What to expect from a whiplash injury in Alva
In most circumstances, victims don’t know for several hours that they have an injury. Initially no pain will be felt, as it takes a few hours for symptoms to show.
Symptoms start as pain and stiffness in the neck, spreading across the shoulders and in to the back. You may suffer a headache or dizziness too. Movement of your head will be restricted, so you may find that you cannot carry out certain activities until your injury is healed.
Your doctor can diagnose whiplash and you will probably be prescribed painkillers and be advised to rest your neck for a few weeks. Recovery time is usually between 6-8 weeks.
