    Don’t allow your claim to become a pain in the neck! Call for no obligation advice from the claims experts!

    Whiplash is a common injury which is usually caused by road traffic accidents such as rear end shunts and collisions involving other motorists. However, accidents on the roads are not the only cause of this painful and distressing neck injury. Many victims of whiplash may have become injured as a result of a fall from height, a work related injury or even as a pedestrian.

    Have you suffered a recent accident within the last 3 years that was caused through no fault of your own and resulted in a diagnosis of whiplash? Then you may be legally entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim using Accident Advice Helpline’s expert  whiplash injury law firm in Croydon.

    Diagnosing whiplash

    • Any injury to the head or neck should always be examined by a medical practitioner, to rule out concussion or more serious damage.
    • If the victim vomits or passes out, then it is important that medical attention is sought immediately.

    Whiplash – more than just a pain in the neck

    Whiplash is caused by a sudden, violent jerking or jolting of the neck in a forwards, backwards or sideways movement. This unpredictable movement can tear, overstretch and damage the delicate soft tissues of the neck causing the symptoms of whiplash.

    Symptoms of whiplash may include:

    1. Tenderness across the shoulders, neck and upper back
    2. Swelling of the tissues of the neck
    3. Pain across the neck
    4. Stiffness across the shoulders and neck
    5. Inability to rotate the neck in all directions
    6. Nausea
    7. Headache
    8. Dizziness

    Treating whiplash symptoms

    Whiplash is commonly treated with:

    • Rest and recuperation in the first instance to allow the damaged tissues to settle and the swelling to subside.
    • Anti-inflammatory medications may be given to reduce the pain and discomfort of movement and to allow rest.
    • Neck brace may be offered to support the neck and reduce the stress on the damaged tissues.
    • Physiotherapy exercises may be recommended to increase movement and allow the neck to support and function normally.
