    Whiplash injury in Cambridgeshire


    Been in an accident and suffered a whiplash injury?

    Many of us take our safety whilst driving for granted.  In fact, it may not be until someone we know becomes involved in an accident, that we actually take the time to appreciate how vulnerable we can be whilst driving a vehicle.  It isn’t always our own actions that put us in danger, sometimes it may be other vehicles and road users on the road who can cause accidents, which unfortunately leave us with painful and distressing injuries.

    If you have been the unfortunate victim of a road traffic accident that was caused through no fault of your own within the last 3 years and sustained a whiplash injury in Cambridgeshire as a result, then you may be legally entitled to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation.

    What is a whiplash injury in Cambridgeshire?

    A whiplash injury is a trauma to the delicate tissues in the neck. Following an accident or incident, the neck may have been jolted violently forwards, backwards or sideways. This sudden jerking movement can tear the delicate tissues in the neck causing whiplash symptoms to develop.

    What are the symptoms of whiplash?

    Whiplash symptoms may include:

    • severe pain and discomfort across the neck, shoulders and upper back
    • stiffness across the neck and upper shoulders
    • headache
    • nausea
    • dizziness

    In addition, symptoms may cause insomnia, a lack of function and mobility to develop. Generally these symptoms take 6-24 hours to develop following a trauma to the neck.
