What causes whiplash?
If you’ve been the victim of a whiplash injury in Glendaruel you’ll no doubt have seen a medical professional for your injuries. However, even if you have, they may not have explained much about the causes of your injury, or why it might persist.
If you haven’t seen a medical professional yet, it’s imperative that you do, but the following information can help you too.
Whiplash is a neck injury, caused when the ligaments are stretched and damaged on impact. It mainly occurs in car collisions, when the neck is thrown suddenly backwards and forward. Even low-impact collisions can cause whiplash injury in Glendaruel, and it can be caused by other accidents too.
Symptoms of whiplash:
- Difficulty moving the neck or head
- Muscle spasms
- Pain in the arms or shoulders
- Pins and needles
- Memory loss
- Poor concentration
Whiplash injury in Glendaruel
Symptoms of a whiplash injury in Glendaruel tend to subside within a couple of days, but in some case, can take over a year to finally disappear, and can involve treatment with anti-inflammatory painkillers and physiotherapy.
If you were injured in such an accident, it might have been costly. Taking time off work to recover can result in a loss of earnings, especially if you were on statutory sick pay or a reduced salary. On top of that, medical bills, prescription charges, travel fees to and from GP and hospital appointment, even personal care or help around the home can all add up.
That’s why government legislation entitles you to make a claim for personal injury compensation following a whiplash injury in Glendaruel. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make the best possible claim.
