What is a whiplash injury in Darlingscott?
Whiplash can cause damage to ligaments and muscles which are there to help protect particular parts of your body including the back of the spine and neck. These are known as facet capsules and are highly prone to whiplash injuries. Your tendons and muscles are pulled over their normal limits and this can lead to cases of disc herniation as well as nerve root damage to the vertebrae. In the most severe cases of whiplash injuries in Darlingscott the vertebrae can become fractured or even dislocated leading to long term problems.
What are the symptoms?
To enable you to claim compensation with the Accident Advice Helpline you must have been for medical treatment for your whiplash injury in Darlingscott, however even with the most modern x-ray machines it can still be almost impossible to detect. The usual symptoms of whiplash are stiffness and pain throughout the neck area and turning of the head can be difficult and painful. Pain can also occur throughout the entire torso in some cases.
As well as musculoskeletal symptoms, you might also have dizziness, nausea, difficulty swallowing and possibly blurred vision. People can become irritable, lack concentration and experience fatigue and whilst these symptoms are usually not long term they could continue for a matter of weeks, months or even years and have an impact on every aspect of your life. Our solicitors will make sure that you are compensated for every single moment of suffering and we can also have all of your accident related expenses reclaimed through our Reimbursement Service – which is on top of your compensation.
