Whiplash can be a very painful and disabling injury for a victim to suffer. If you have suffered this because of someone else’s fault, you may want to make a personal injury claim for your whiplash injury in Bray. You can free legal advice about making a compensation claim for your whiplash injury in Bray by contacting Accident Advice Helpline, the experts in personal injury claims.
The symptoms of your whiplash injury in Bray
There are many symptoms for a whiplash injury in Bray, and depending on the severity of the injury some victims will suffer more than others. At its worst, whiplash can cause:
- Painful neck;
- Painful back;
- Painful arms, and sometimes legs;
- Pins and needles, or tingling sensations;
- Blurred vision;
- Sleepless nights; and
- Stiffness and lack of mobility in neck and back areas.
Recovery from a whiplash injury in Bray
Whiplash is a self-limiting condition, which means it will get better on its own given time. A mild case will heal in just a few weeks, if the victim has a mixture of rest, gentle exercise and painkillers to help with the pain while it is at its worst. Victims usually start to feel the effects of the condition a few hours after an accident, and over a few days it will get worse before it starts to get better.
Chronic whiplash can take many months from which to recover, and sometimes victims never fully heal. They can be left with a weakness in their neck or back, and some develop a chronic pain syndrome; this will leave them in extreme pain, even after the whiplash has healed. There is no cure for chronic whiplash, and many victims spend the rest of their lives managing pain, rather than getting rid of it.
