    Whiplash injury in Machrie Bay


    You may have heard the term ‘Highlands and Islands’ in reference to the Scottish Highlands and the islands that surround them. One of those islands is Arran – more properly known as the Isle of Arran – and it can be found in the Firth of Clyde off the mainland of Scotland. Machrie is a village on the island, and Machrie Bay is part of that village, since it is in a coastal position. As you can probably guess, a whiplash injury in Machrie Bay may occur in the event of a car accident, which is highly unlikely to happen in this quiet location.

    Of course, no one ever knows when or where a car accident might happen. If we all had notice of such things, we’d be able to avoid them. But if you’re unlucky and you’re involved in a car crash somewhere, you might suffer from whiplash as a result.

    What is chronic whiplash?

    Most cases of whiplash resolve themselves in a relatively short period of time. However, in a few rare cases some people may suffer from symptoms long after the accident that caused them in the first place. When this occurs, it is known as chronic whiplash. It is sometimes diagnosed in cases where the individual is still suffering from pain and stiffness six months or longer after the accident.

    In these cases, physiotherapy is a possibility and may be recommended by the person’s GP. Painkillers may also help manage the pain levels, although of course these mask the pain rather than acting to reduce it in reality.

    Do you have chronic whiplash?

    Did you suffer a car accident some months ago and are still suffering from these symptoms? If you have seen your GP and you have received this as a diagnosis, you may also want to speak to someone with legal experience of dealing with whiplash claims.
