Read on to find out more about whiplash – and what to do if it happens to you!
Whiplash, the basics
However it happened, whiplash is a painful injury; you may feel stiffness and tenderness, and be unable to move your neck very much.
But thankfully, whiplash injuries usually heal completely after a few weeks. Some cases may drag on for longer, becoming chronic whiplash, and causing depression – but most cases don’t last very long.
What to do if you get a whiplash injury in Newbiggin by the Sea
After getting yourself checked by the doctor, you will need to begin your recovery. You probably won’t need to wear a neck brace, but you will need to avoid doing anything too strenuous for a while. You may need to take painkillers, but usually, nothing more complex than this is required in order for a full recovery to take place.
To rest adequately, some time off work may be necessary, and it is being off work that could cause you financial difficulty in the form of loss of wages. On top of that, you may need to make use of the services of a home help or a childminder. Driving is probably out of the question for a while, so you may need to use buses and taxis to get out and about.
With the expenses mounting up, many people worry about their finances. But if you make a claim for your whiplash injury in Newbiggin by the Sea, you could be awarded a sum of money that will help you to take care of these expenses, and continue your recovery without all the worry.
