A whiplash injury in Lennoxtown isn’t classed as a serious injury, but it can leave you in pain and discomfort for many weeks. If you have been injured and were not at fault, call Accident Advice Helpline for information about a compensation claim.
The symptoms of whiplash
Whiplash is a muscular injury but it can be a particularly painful one. During an accident your head is often thrown violently in one direction. This sudden movement stretches the muscles and ligaments and causes pain.
You may not feel any symptoms for a few hours and then you will start to feel pain and stiffness spreading across the neck and shoulders. It will become difficult to move your head and you mustn’t do anything which puts extra pressure on your neck muscles.
Some victims also suffer dizziness, headaches and pains in the arms and these symptoms are quite normal.
Your doctor will confirm your diagnosis and may prescribe painkillers and advise you to rest. If your injury was someone else’s fault, talk to Accident Advice Helpline about claiming for a whiplash injury in Lennoxtown.
