Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and has many attractions for tourists. With lots of traffic on the roads on a daily basis, accidents happen. If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Edinburgh and you were not at fault, Accident Advice Helpline are experienced solicitors who can help you with a compensation claim.
What to expect from a whiplash injury
If you suffer a whiplash injury, you may not realise immediately that you are injured. The symptoms may not show for several hours.
As the symptoms develop, you can expect to feel pain and stiffness which usually goes across the neck and shoulders. You may feel pain at the top of the arms of in your back too. Dizziness can occur, and you may not have full movement of your head.
A visit to a doctor can confirm that you have a whiplash injury in Edinburgh, and nothing more serious. You will probably be prescribed painkillers and may be advised to take time off work. Your injury should heal within 6-8 weeks.
