If you’ve sustained a whiplash injury in Barham, or anywhere else in the country, the first thing to do is to go and see your doctor and get checked over.
If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury, it will heal itself in time, although a course of physiotherapy will undoubtedly help to speed the recovery process along.
How to tell if you sustained a whiplash injury
Whiplash injury occurs as a result of damage to the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the neck caused by a violent jerking of the head, often as the result of a collision in an RTA.
The symptoms of whiplash, include: neck pain, limited mobility of the neck; often accompanied by headaches and sometimes numbness or pins and needles in the arms and hands.
These symptoms often don’t materialise until somewhere between 6 and 12 hours after the incident, and in some cases may even take several days to present themselves.
You could be entitled to compensation
You should be aware that if you’ve been injured, and someone else is to blame, the law says you’re entitled to financial compensation.
