Whiplash injury in Great Abington


Did you have a whiplash injury in Great Abington?

Cambridgeshire has several villages of differing sizes dotted about its area. One of these is called Great Abington, and it lies next door to another village called Little Abington. They are unsurprisingly known together as The Abingtons and have close links between the two, as you might imagine. Collectively they do not have a large population; the two villages combined only have some 1400 residents as indicated in the last census. However, if you were ever to have a car accident in the area, you might still incur a whiplash injury in Great Abington – one that might leave you wondering whether you could claim compensation.

Whiplash can be sustained if your head is suddenly moved either from back to front or sideways – just the sort of thing that can and will happen in a car crash. This is the most common way for someone to suffer this injury, although it can also happen in contact sports such as rugby.

How do you know you have whiplash?

This is a very good question, as you may well not realise you have it immediately following the accident. You might feel pain elsewhere as a result of the collision and from your seat-belt locking (which it should, of course, do), but you could be totally unaware of a whiplash injury. You might even think you have got away from the accident without suffering any adverse symptoms.

However, it actually takes around six to 12 hours for the symptoms to begin, so you need to be alert during this time period. If you go beyond 12 hours and you haven’t got any symptoms, you should be fine. If you do get symptoms such as a stiff and painful neck, headaches and a tender feeling around your neck, you will almost certainly have whiplash.
