    Whiplash injury in Brook Green

    If you are involved in a road traffic accident, fall off your motorbike, fall awkwardly or maybe lift something heavy in the wrong way, you may need to make a whiplash injury in Brook Green compensation claim if someone else caused it to happen.

    The usual causes of a whiplash injury in Brook Green

    • Playing contact sports
    • Knocking you head in a slip, trip or fall
    • Having something heavy or solid hit your head
    • Falling from a cycle, motorbike or maybe a horse

    There are some symptoms, apart from the pain and stiffness in your neck that are often there in the first few days, but these do diminish fairly quickly. You could experience:

    • Back pain and stiffness
    • Pains or pins and needles in arms and legs
    • Dizziness and blurred vision
    • Ringing in your ears
    • Jaw pain
