Whiplash injury in Cambridge

Had a collision in your car? Diagnosed with whiplash? Make your legal claim for compensation today…

If you have had an accident in your car, perhaps sustaining a rear end shunt and being propelled forwards, by a vehicle colliding with your own from behind, then you may well have been diagnosed with a whiplash injury to your neck.

This type of injury is synonymous with rear end shunt accidents, which may result in trauma to the neck of both the driver and any passengers in their vehicle.  If this type of injury was caused by a vehicle running into the rear of your own vehicle, then it may be likely that the accident was caused through no fault of your own.  In this case, you may be legally entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim for your whiplash injury in Cambridge.

I have hurt my neck. Is it a whiplash injury?

Whiplash symptoms usually begin to appear about 6-24 hours following an accident and typically appear later the same day or the following day.  Symptoms of a whiplash injury in Cambridge may include:

  1. severe discomfort and pain across the neck, shoulders and top of the arms
  2. stiffness and an inability to move comfortably
  3. headache
  4. dizziness
  5. nausea

I’m worried. What has caused these symptoms?

In a rear end shunt, one vehicle may run into the rear of the vehicle in front, perhaps at speed.  The resulting impact or shunt causes the neck of the driver and any passengers to be thrust forwards, backwards or sideways violently, and often suddenly, without warning.  This results in the delicate tissues of the neck being torn and overstretched.  This is essentially what a whiplash injury in Cambridge is caused by.

However, it is extremely important that any injury to the head or neck is investigated thoroughly by a medical practitioner, to rule out serious neural damage as soon as possible following an accident.

What is the recommended treatment for my whiplash injury in Cambridge?

  • Rest to allow the tissues to settle and for any swelling to subside
  • Anti-inflammatory medications to reduce swelling and allow the pain to settle
  • Gentle exercises to prevent the neck from becoming too immobile
  • Physiotherapy to encourage mobility and function
