    Whiplash injury in Churchill

    Questions to ask your doctor about your spinal or whiplash injury

    If you have been in an accident and sustained a whiplash injury in Churchill or spinal cord injury, you will have to go through various stages of treatment to help you to get back to normal and make a full recovery. Dealing with these types of injury is never going to be easy, as they are serious injuries which affect your ability to go about your day to day life.

    They can also be very painful and long lasting. In order to best deal with the situation that you are in, you should speak to your doctor about what has happened to you and how long your whiplash injury in Churchill or spinal cord injury will take to heal.

    There are a number of other questions you may want to ask to help you to get through the process more comfortably.

    What is going to happen now?

    The most important thing for you to know at any one time is what the short term prognosis is and what you can expect to happen. This takes away a lot of the fear and helps you to put together a timeline in your head of what is likely to happen and when, so that you can start to feel more in control.

    What side effects might I suffer from?

    Any medication or medical treatment is likely to have side effects, but usually these will be much less painful or concerning than your initial whiplash injury in Churchill or spinal injury.

    Ask your doctor what side effects you should be expecting, so that you know what to expect, and also so that you know when something isn’t right and that you need more treatment.

    Can I make a compensation claim?

    Your doctor can provide you with a medical assessment which lists the symptoms and diagnosis of your problem so that you can make a compensation claim from the person at fault for your accident.

    You can then call Accident Advice Helpline on: 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile to find out more about the claims process and make a claim for your whiplash injury in Churchill.

    What other treatment options are there?

    If you think a certain treatment type isn’t working for you, and that you may need to try something else, ask your doctor what other options there are, how they could help and what the risk factors are.

    This allows you to make an informed decision about your own care, and helps you to take control in your treatment.

    Ask about everything from physiotherapy to surgery so that you can go away and think about what your next move should be, and whether or not you want to take this option.
