    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash occurs when the neck is thrust or jolted forwards, backwards or sideways suddenly and often violently. This can cause the ligaments of the neck to become torn and stretched. This trauma is known as a whiplash injury, and it may take some time for the symptoms to settle.

    What type of whiplash injury in Callington can I claim for?

    Whiplash accidents are commonly linked to road traffic accidents involving drivers, passengers and even pedestrians caught up in the accident. However, this isn’t the only type of whiplash accident that can occur. Whiplash can also occur as a result of:

    I have hurt my neck in an accident. How do I find out if I have a whiplash injury in Callington?

    Any injury to the neck should always be investigated as soon as possible by a medical practitioner, in order to rule out the possibility of serious injury. A general practitioner can carry out a physical examination of the neck and head, assessing the range of movement to determine if you have sustained a whiplash injury in Callington.

    What are the typical symptoms of a whiplash injury in Callington?

    Symptoms usually take 6 to 24 hours to develop following an injury to the neck. If pain is felt at the time of the injury, then it is unlikely to be a whiplash injury.

    Symptoms may include:

    • Pain across the neck and upper shoulders;
    • Restricted movement of the neck and head;
    • Nausea;
    • Dizziness;
    • Headaches; and
    • Stiffness across the neck and shoulders.
