Had a whiplash injury in Middlewich? Unsure what to do? We understand – this is the case for many who suffer this injury. But with Accident Advice Helpline, you can be sure of the best guidance – so why not read on and find out a few things about whiplash?
What whiplash actually is
When you get a whiplash injury in Middlewich, your neck’s tendons and ligaments have suffered damage as a result of your head jerking due to sudden impact.
It is a painful condition, and you may experience tenderness and stiffness in the neck. Numbness may also be a symptom, as well as tingling. You may also experience nausea.
The symptoms vary from person to person, and they don’t necessarily develop straight after the accident that caused the whiplash. It may take several hours, and the symptoms often worsen for a few days afterwards.
How a whiplash injury in Middlewich affects your life
Fortunately, whiplash, whilst certainly annoying, is usually not severe. It should last no longer than a few weeks, and it takes little more than adequate rest and pain medication to recover from the condition.
But while you are recovering, you may need to take time off work, and this could cause your wages to drop. Additionally, you may need the services of a home help or childminder, and their help costs money.
Extra expenses and reduced income need not necessarily be a recipe for financial disaster, though, because if you claim compensation, you could be awarded a sum of money that will enable you to restore your bank balance and take the stress out of your recovery period.
