Information about whiplash injury in Midhurst
Whiplash is a condition that affects the neck. This is something that most people know, but they may not be aware that it is the tendons and ligaments in the neck that are affected.
They may also not know that it isn’t just motoring accidents that cause whiplash. The damage is caused by sudden impact to the head, which jerks and puts strain on the neck. This impact may be caused in other ways, such as by a slip and fall, or during contact sports.
Diagnosis, treatment and recovery
The symptoms of whiplash – pain, stiffness and tenderness – are usually sufficient for a diagnosis of the condition, and treatment is normally simple. Rest and painkillers should suffice, and recovery is often complete within a few weeks.
But during the recovery period, you might have trouble doing the things you normally do. It’s difficult to keep up with all your chores, such as cooking, cleaning and shopping. You may need to buy in some help, such as from a childminder or home help.
You may need time off work
To recover properly, you could need to take some time off work. This means a potential loss of income, and with extra expenditure, the threat of financial hardship is greater.
That’s why it is worth considering making a claim for compensation. If you win your case, your payout will help you to deal with these expenses and get your life back on track.
