Whiplash injury in Alyth


Rule out a spinal injury when dealing with possible whiplash injury in Alyth

A spinal injury is one of the most dangerous injuries you can sustain after a head injury. With spinal cord injuries there is a very real chance that you may suffer permanent paralysis if you are not treated quickly and correctly. You should never move someone who has a possible spinal cord injury as you could make their injury worse, so you will need to work out whether this is a possibility before you start any treatment. A neck injury could be a whiplash injury in Alyth, or it could be something more serious. Similarly, a whiplash injury in Alyth can be quite serious in some cases as well.

If you have been involved in an accident which was not your fault you may be able to claim compensation using Accident Advice Helpline. Call 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. The team can claim compensation for any injury, including a whiplash injury in Alyth from an accident which was caused by someone else’s negligence, and will work on a 100% no win no fee* basis to get you the compensation you deserve.

  • Always assume there is a spinal injury. In any case where someone is complaining of pain to their neck or back, is unconscious or has been in a serious accident, you should assume to begin with that there is a spinal cord injury and not move them.
  • Check the position of their body. You know what a body should look like when lying down, so keep an eye out for anything that looks twisted or awkward. If the neck or back in particular is in a strange position then this is a sign of spinal injury.
  • Look for other symptoms. Spinal injuries can lead to emptying of the bowels or bladder and difficulty breathing.
  • Ask the victim how they feel. If they describe severe pain, or any pain, in the neck or back, tingling feelings in their limbs or pressure in the back of their head then these are all signs of spinal injury and should be dealt with by a professional.
  • Tell them to stay still. Even if you know you are looking for a spinal injury you should not tell this to the victim as it can frighten them. You should tell them to stay as still as they can until paramedics get there, though, so they don’t cause themselves any damage.
  • Call the emergency services. In any accident where someone is badly injured you should call the emergency services as a point of priority. You may be able to save someone’s life simply by getting a medical professional to them as quickly as possible, and this also limits the amount of time they must be in pain.
