How did you sustain your whiplash injury in Northampton?
Most people assume that whiplash is an injury that you only get in car crashes, but there is no end to the ways it can happen, such as:
- Slipping, tripping or falling and landing awkwardly
- Heavy lifting without proper training in how to do it correctly
- Something heavy knocking your head
- Being thrown from your cycle, perhaps by a pothole that should have been repaired
In fact, any accident that causes a sudden movement to your head, knocking your neck out of its movement zone, can cause whiplash. It happens so easily, it should be no surprise to anyone that it is one of the most common injuries that personal injury claims are made for.
Most cases of whiplash will cause some pain and discomfort for a few weeks, but it is a self healing injury that has to be allowed time to correct itself. If you suffer from chronic whiplash though, it can last many months, and some victims never fully recover finding themselves left with weaknesses in their back and neck.
