The village of Craigellachie is located in Moray in Scotland, near the town of Aberlour. The name of the village means ‘rocky hill’ due to the village’s location on a cliff, and the area is popular with hikers and walkers. However, the age of the village combined with the rocky and uneven ground means that slips, trips and falls can often occur here, even resulting in a whiplash injury in Craigellachie.
What should you do if you suffer a whiplash injury in Craigellachie?
Whiplash is an unfortunately common injury, and can easily occur after a slip or fall where the head is jolted backwards suddenly and violently. The resulting damage to the ligaments and tendons of the neck can be very painful. If you experience a whiplash injury in Craigellachie, it is better to move your neck as much as possible rather than keeping it still in a neck brace, as keeping your neck mobile will speed up your recovery, even though this may feel painful.
You should seek medical attention immediately so you can receive proper care and pain killers as needed. If your whiplash injury in Craigellachie was not your fault, you may even be entitled to compensation with help from Accident Advice Helpline.
