    Whiplash injury in Ashbourne


    For many motorbike riders in Staffordshire heading towards Matlock Bath, where hundred of bikers congregate every day, Ashbourne in Derbyshire is about halfway. It is therefore a popular place for bikers to stop to use the facilities, before finishing their journey.

    Motorbike accidents tend to result in serious injuries, due to the lack of protection a motorbike provides, but there are also many riders to whom simple things happen. Sometimes these things can cause more damage to the bike than the rider, and quite often all the rider will do is sustain a whiplash injury in Ashbourne.

    As long as whatever caused the whiplash injury in Ashbourne was the fault of someone else, the rider will be entitled to claim compensation. They should contact Accident Advice Helpline for assistance.

    How a whiplash injury in Ashbourne will affect you

    Mild whiplash will cause you neck pain and stiffness, but will likely heal over a few weeks. More severe whiplash can have numerous effects, which can make life difficult for you. Some of the symptoms you may experience to start with include:

    • Pain in the neck area;
    • Backache;
    • Painful arms and legs;
    • Pins and needles, or tingling sensations in the arms and legs;
    • Headaches and migraines;
    • Sleepless nights;
    • Stiffness and lack of mobility in neck and back areas;
    • Dizziness;
    • Blurred vision; and
    • Nausea.

    The neck needs time to heal, and can become very stiff if there is not some gentle exercise to keep it mobile. It often gets worse before it improves, so don’t be surprised if after a few days you are in more pain than you were to start with. The latest advice for whiplash sufferers is to be as active as the pain allows, as this is the best way to heal the injury.

    The timescale of a whiplash injury in Ashbourne

    Chronic whiplash leaves some unlucky victims with stiffness in their necks and less mobility than they used to have. Some of them never fully recover, and are left with a weakness in the back or neck. Anyone who suffers from whiplash should seek medical attention, as every injury and patient is different and you need to be advised by your doctor.
