Whiplash Injury in Castle Donnington


Castle Donnington is the nearest town to East Midlands Airport, sitting on the edge of the National Forest in North West Leicestershire. It is probably best known for the car racing track, Donnington Park that is close by. Formula One raced at the track several years ago and it has the world’s largest collection of Formula One and Grand Prix vehicles.

But Donnington Park is more than a racetrack, it is used all year for many other events as well. There are markets held there and music festivals; all events that attract many visitors. Whenever there are thousands of people milling around, some on foot, some on bikes and some in cars, it is inevitable that accidents will happen and in some of those accidents there will be innocent victims who sustain a whiplash injury in Castle Donnington.

How victims sustain a whiplash injury in Castle Donnington

This injury can happen in many different ways and is so easy to sustain that a whiplash injury in Castle Donnington happens all the time. All it needs is something to make your head suddenly jolt in any direction further then it would normally move and this will damage the tendons and ligaments in your neck, creating the whiplash injury in Castle Donnington. This sometimes happens when:

  • You fall over and bang your head
  • You fall from a cycle or a motorbike
  • Have something heavy hit your head
  • If you are in a road traffic accident
  • You are on a fairground ride that has restraints

Part of the problem with a whiplash injury is that you are not normally aware that the damage has been caused until several hours later and sometimes it is the next day before the pain and stiffness starts.

The recovery time of a whiplash injury

The majority of whiplash injuries are what is termed as mild whiplash and this will heal itself in just a few weeks, the NHS quoting the average healing time as just 32 days. If however you suffer a much more serious whiplash injury, it is then known as chronic whiplash and this can take many months to heal, as well as sometimes leaving the victim with a weakness in the neck forever.
