Whiplash refers to a certain type of injury inflicted upon the soft tissues of the neck, when tendons and ligaments in that area have been elongated beyond their normal capacity. It is not always easy to diagnose, due to the fact that symptoms can vary, and they are not always immediately evident. Whiplash injuries happen when your head is suddenly thrown forwards, backwards or from side to side.
Symptoms associated with whiplash include:
- Neck pain
- Pain or stiffness in the shoulders, chest and arms
- Blurred vision
- Lower back pain
- Difficulty moving your head or neck
Whiplash is one of, if not the most, common injury associated with road traffic accidents and if you have experienced whiplash during an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could make a claim for compensation.
