    Whiplash injury in Bromborough


    If you had a whiplash injury in Bromborough in any other part of your body, it would be called a sprain, as that’s basically what it is. If your head gets a sudden jolt, backwards, forwards, or sideways and the ligaments and tendons in the neck are damaged a whiplash injury in Bromborough will be caused.

    Most of us know how painful a sprain can be, and whiplash is just the same, except to start with you can suffer other symptoms as well, such as

    • Pain in the neck area
    • Stiffness to the neck
    • Nausea
    • Headaches and migraines
    • Backache
    • Blurred vision
    • Vertigo
    • Dizziness
    • Pins and needles in the arms and legs, or numbness
    • Pain in the arms and legs

    These other symptoms do tend to diminish over a few days, but the pain will last for a few weeks if you have a mild whiplash injury in Bromborough. For a chronic whiplash injury, it can take many months to heal.

    There are no medical tests for whiplash and the doctor will base his diagnosis on the symptoms and the knowledge of your recent accident. Once he has diagnosed the condition, you will be able to make your personal injury compensation claim.
