Although people tend to think of a whiplash injury in Broadstone as a car-related injury, that is by no means the only way to sustain this type of injury. It can happen in any way that causes a sudden jolt to your head, as this can damage the tendons and ligaments in your neck. If someone else causes you to suffer a whiplash injury in Broadstone, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a personal injury compensation claim.
Needing legal help when you have a whiplash injury in Broadstone
Whiplash symptoms tend not to materialise until a few hours after the accident in question. If you are in immediate pain, there could be other problems and you should seek medical attention straight away. Probably the day after the accident, if you have a chronic whiplash injury in Broadstone, you may start to experience:
- Neck pain and stiffness;
- Back pain and stiffness;
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs, which can turn to aches;
- Lack of mobility;
- Blurred vision;
- Trouble sleeping;
- Anxiety and stress; and
Some of these symptoms should start to subside fairly quickly, and if your whiplash injury is mild you will probably only suffer the pain and stiffness, which will heal itself in just a few weeks.
Treating a chronic whiplash injury
Chronic whiplash can take a very long time to heal, and some people are left with a weakness in the neck and back from which they never totally recover. In the most severe cases, a bigger worry is the side-effects it can have, such as a complex chronic pain disorder which can leave the victim in daily pain for the rest of their lives.
A whiplash injury is more likely to heal if you keep active. Although this may cause you some discomfort, it should not make the injury any worse.
