Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Newton Stewart? It seems unlikely in this peaceful Scottish town on the River Cree, but accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere. Lady Luck does not discriminate.
Compensation for whiplash
Cash is usually paid in cases in which the victim is off work, or has been caused physical and financial hardship as a result of someone else’s actions. The difficulty with whiplash injuries is they can be hard to prove; no medical test, X-ray, or scan shows damage to soft tissue in most cases, and these tests are normally only carried out if a fracture is suspected. Medical experts refer to whiplash as a “self-limiting” condition, meaning the body heals itself, but that doesn’t mean your whiplash injury is any less painful!
A whiplash injury in Newton Stewart is a difficult condition to manage, we’ll be honest. Some doctors do not recommend neck braces, yet it is impossible to get comfortable without one. Take painkillers with lots of water and get plenty of rest. It’s important to be patient and let time heal the sore tendons. After the first 72 hours, the pain should ease up somewhat. Do remember to have a check-up with your GP to ensure there is no other damage, such as hairline fractures to bones or vertebrae, or trapped nerves.
