    Whiplash injury in Newnham-on-Severn


    Gloucestershire is a big county, and the River Severn flows through it on the western side. This is where you will find a village called Newnham-on-Severn. It’s obvious how it got its name, and you’ll find it on the western bank of the river. Only a little over 1,200 people live here. Villages tend to have a low instance of car accidents, simply because the level of traffic in such a quiet location is going to be very low as well. However, any location where traffic is present does present the possibility of a car accident happening. Thus, it is not out of the realms of possibility that you might suffer a whiplash injury in Newnham-on-Severn if you should ever have an accident there.

    Such things are rare, but you may want to know more about whiplash if you’ve been in this situation already. Perhaps you are reading this after suffering an accident very recently, for example – maybe even within the last few days.

    What symptoms can occur after whiplash is suffered?

    You might be surprised at the diversity of some of the symptoms you could suffer from. For instance, you could end up with lower back pain or ringing in the ears. Neck stiffness and pain are the most common ones, along with headaches, but pain in the shoulders and even blurred vision could all potentially occur.

    The seriousness of each individual case may well be down to how the accident happened and what speeds were involved. Some people may also be more prone to whiplash than others. For example, it has been found that women are more prone to getting whiplash than men in the same situation.

    Is it worth claiming anything?

    This will be a question that might come into the mind of anyone who has sustained whiplash in an accident they did nothing to cause. Sometimes it is very obvious who was at fault, but regardless, a call to Accident Advice Helpline makes a lot of sense.
