Do you have whiplash?
If you’ve been in an accident in which you have suffered a trauma to the head, you may well have suffered whiplash as well.
Whiplash is the non-medical term to denote the damage done to the tendons in the neck, when the head is thrown around with violent force. It can take a few hours for the effects of whiplash to onset, but once they do, they can result in a number of symptoms such as pain, stiffness and swelling in the neck, pain in the back and shoulders, headaches and dizziness, tingling in the arms and hands and more.
While it’s common for whiplash to develop as a result of a car accident, it can be caused in any instance in which the head is thrown back and forth or side to side with vigour. For example, if you’ve slipped, fallen or sustained a blow to the head, you too could be suffering whiplash and be entitled to seek compensation.
