    Whiplash injury in Ayr


    There are hundreds of ways you could suffer a whiplash injury in Ayr. Whiplash does not happen just in car accidents as a lot of people think, but also it can happen if:

    • You land awkwardly after a slip, trip or fall accident
    • You are playing contact sports such as rugby or boxing
    • You are lifting something heavy in an incorrect way
    • You fall from a cycle, or maybe a horse
    • Something solid hitting your head

    These are just a few examples as basically anything that causes a sudden jolt to your head can create a whiplash injury in Ayr, or wherever else you are located.

    The symptoms of a whiplash injury in Ayr

    Whiplash will heal itself given time and for most people they will experience neck pain and stiffness for just a few weeks. But for others it is more serious and especially in the first few days they may also suffer from:

    • Nausea
    • Lower back pain
    • Pins and needles in the hands and arms that can turn to aches
    • Sleeplessness
    • Depression

    For the most serious cases of a whiplash injury in Ayr, the victim could be suffering for a few months. There is not much in the way of treatment for whiplash, except painkillers and a little gentle exercise to try and keep the stiffness to a minimum.

    If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Ayr, in an accident that was not your fault, as long as you sought medical attention, and leave it no more than three years to start a claim, you may be entitled to compensation. To find out for sure if you qualify for compensation, speak with the friendly advisors at Accident Advice Helpline today.
