    Whiplash Injury in Mildenhall

    What do you know about whiplash? Most of us have some idea about the condition, but myths abound – and if it happens to you, you need to have the facts.

    So read on and find out some information about what happens when you get a whiplash injury in Mildenhall!

    How whiplash is caused

    Sudden impact to the head causes it to jerk, and in turn, puts strain on the tendons and ligaments in the neck. This is whiplash, and its symptoms may not be immediately apparent.

    When the symptoms present, they are as follows: pain, stiffness and tenderness. Some sufferers may also experience headaches, nausea and dizziness.

    How whiplash is treated

    Recovery from whiplash is aided by rest and painkillers, and takes no longer than a few weeks. Some cases may last longer – even as long as several months (this is known as chronic whiplash) – but the majority take less time to heal.

    Contrary to what you might have seen on the television, or heard about, keeping the neck immobile in a brace is not advisable for whiplash! But you will still need to avoid doing anything too strenuous.

    What else you need to avoid after a whiplash injury in Mildenhall

    You may also be unable to carry out your usual duties. What’s so strenuous about taking the kids to school and doing the cleaning, you ask? Well, it’s amazing just how much strain your body is put under when you’re bending down, picking things up, carrying things around…

    For this reason, you may require the services of a home help or a childminder – and this, of course, costs money.

    Not only that, but you may also need to take time off work (again, functioning can be difficult) and this could leave you at risk of losing wages.

    Making a claim could help you

    If you make a claim, and your case is successfully settled, the sum of money you are awarded will enable you to take care of these expenses. Part of the payout will be for reimbursement of expenditure, and another element will enable you to have a recovery period with far less financial worry.

    You should qualify to claim if your whiplash injury in Mildenhall was caused by someone else. You can check your eligibility with our 30-second test (available on our website) if you wish; alternatively, why not call Accident Advice Helpline?
