    Symptoms include:

    • Neck pain and stiffness
    • Tender neck muscles

    • A strike to the head from a heavy object
    • Industrial accidents.

    What are the symptoms of a whiplash injury in East Leake?

    To be eligible to start a claim for compensation through Accident Advice Helpline, your injury must have occurred within the last three years and you must have sought medical treatment for your whiplash injury in East Leake.

    • Neck pain and stiffness
    • Headaches
    • Shoulder stiffness
    • Dizziness
    • Fatigue
    • Jaw pain
