If you sustain a whiplash injury in Newcastle upon Tyne it can be much worse than people realise. Of course there are the mild cases that heal in just a few weeks. There is also chronic whiplash that can take over a year to get better, and in the first few days can also cause:
- Lack of sleep
- Blurred vision
- Pins and needles in the arms and hands that can turn to pain
- Lower back pain
When you are suffering some of these symptoms, the last thing you will feel like doing is being active. But the medical profession say that is the best way to help a whiplash injury heal. They also say that although the pain and stiffness in the neck might make it uncomfortable to be moving around, you will not make the injury any worse.
How a whiplash injury in Newcastle upon Tyne can happen
Most people associate a whiplash injury as being the result of a car crash. However, it can happen so easily in hundreds of different ways. All it takes to get this type of injury is something that causes a sudden jolt to your head, or excessive twist to your neck. It could be caused by:
- Falling from a cycle or horse
- Something heavy hitting your head
- Playing contact sports
- Heavy lifting carried out incorrectly
With so many ways whiplash can happen it should be no surprise that it is often caused by the actions of someone else. In this situation, the injured victim has a legal right to claim compensation from whoever was to blame.
