    Whiplash injury in Bromley

    Although people tend to think of a whiplash injury in Bromley as a car related injury, it happens in hundreds of different ways. It can happen in any way that causes a sudden jolt to your head, which damages the tendons and muscles in your neck.

    If you sustain a whiplash injury in Bromley because of the actions of someone else, you should be making a compensation claim.

    Needing Accident Advice Helpline when you have a whiplash injury in Bromley

    Whiplash symptoms do not normally materialise till a few hours after the accident, and sometimes it is the next day before the victim realises they have a problem. If you are in immediate pain there could be other injuries and you should seek medical attention straight away. As well as the neck pain and stiffness, in the first few days you could also experience

    • Back pain and stiffness
    • Pins and needles in the arms and legs that can turn to aches or numbness
    • Headaches and migraines
    • Lack of mobility
    • Nausea
    • Vertigo
    • Dizziness
    • Tiredness
    • Blurred vision
    • Trouble sleeping
    • Anxiety and stress
    • Depression

    There are no tests for whiplash; the doctor will give his opinion based on your symptoms and the knowledge of your recent accident, but his opinion can be very important when you are making your personal injury claim.

    Treating whiplash

    Exercise will help the muscles to heal, a mild case of whiplash should recover in just a few weeks. Painkillers and icepacks are normally the only treatment that would be given.

    A moderate case of whiplash may take several months to heal, although the treatment would be very similar to the mild whiplash. Some times a neck brace is used, but these are not recommended for any length of time as they can affect your mobility.

    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 more 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.
