Whiplash injury in Newton Abbot


If you’re familiar with the Teignbridge District of Devon, you may already have heard of Newton Abbot. This is a market town close to the southern coastline of Devon, and the town is located on the River Teign (pronounced ‘tin’). While it has a population of 25,000 or so most of the year, visitors tend to come to the area during the summer while in Devon on holiday, and this can make the area busier than it would normally be. Whatever time of the year it is though, a whiplash injury in Newton Abbot is a definite rarity.

Accidents can happen in regions all over the country and in both the countryside and in the cities. The amount of traffic might potentially make accidents more likely, but towns and villages are not immune from things like this happening.

How is whiplash diagnosed?

If you’ve been injured in a car or road accident, it is always a good idea to get yourself checked out. Even if you don’t require an ambulance to be sent to the scene, you may need to visit your GP or a local walk-in centre just to be sure you haven’t suffered anything more serious than a few bruises.

However, whiplash may not become apparent until the day after the accident – or a few hours after it happens, if it occurred early in the day. Very often, medical experts don’t perform any tests to make their diagnosis of whiplash. They will examine you and find out what happened, and provide you with painkillers or recommendations that will help aid a quicker recovery.

Compensation possibilities

After you’ve come to terms with the accident and what happened, your mind may turn to the idea of claiming compensation. Maybe you’ve heard about other people winning compensation after suffering a whiplash injury in Newton Abbot, and now you are wondering if you could do the same.
