Loch Lomond is the second largest Scottish loch after Loch Ness, and it has a lot of legends and myths attached to it. There are more than thirty islands in Loch Lomond, some of which are crannogs, or man-made islands built to erect dwellings on. It is also a popular attraction with tourists, and at certain times of the year the roads will be busier. If you’ve received a whiplash injury in Loch Lomond and someone else was responsible, let Accident Advice Helpline help you with a compensation claim.
Many people walk away from an accident believing they haven’t been injured. It’s only later on that they start to feel pain and stiffness. This is a typical symptom of a whiplash injury in Loch Lomond.
Once the pain starts it will spread across the neck and shoulders and movement of the head will be restricted. If you carry on as normal and ignore it, it will just get worse.
Usually a trip to the doctors will confirm the diagnosis, and you will probably be prescribed painkillers and be advised to take it easy for a little while. Whiplash is not a serious injury, and usually clears up within 6-8 weeks.
