    Whiplash injury in Middleton St George

    Whiplash injury in Middleton St George

    Many people are aware of whiplash, perhaps through knowing someone who has had it, or because it is often mentioned in everyday life and in the media.

    But do you know exactly what it is? Do you know how it is treated? Do you also know that if you get a whiplash injury in Middleton St George, you could claim compensation if the injury has been caused by someone else?

    The basic facts about whiplash

    Whiplash is an injury to the neck’s tendons and ligaments. It is a painful condition, and features tenderness and stiffness as its symptoms. People who suffer whiplash injury in Middleton St George may find it difficult to move their neck.

    It happens when sudden impact to the head causes it to jerk, putting strain on the neck. The cause of this may be a car crash (this is very common), a slip and fall, or a blow to the head. It is easily diagnosed, and the treatment programme involves little more than rest and pain medication. Sometimes, cases of whiplash may last months, but most whiplash injuries clear up within a few weeks.

    Financial problems associated with whiplash injury in Middleton St George

    During your recovery from whiplash, you could need some time off work. It is particularly difficult for people who have physically demanding jobs to go to work after a whiplash injury.

    Of course, being off work could cause your income to suffer. Not only that, but you could also need to buy in help for things you can usually cope with perfectly well, but are now difficult to do.

    Cooking, cleaning, doing the laundry and picking up the children from school may be normal everyday tasks that are almost impossible to perform with whiplash, so you could need a home help. It is easy to see how a whiplash injury in Middleton St George could have a bad effect on your bank balance.
