Whiplash Injury in Pembroke Dock

0

If you’ve been in an accident that involved sudden impact, you might well have sustained a whiplash injury, and you could be wondering what to do next!

Causes of a whiplash injury in Pembroke Dock

Anything which causes sudden impact may cause whiplash. That’s perhaps why most of us associate the injury with car accidents, but these aren’t the only way it can happen.

People are often surprised to learn that a slip or fall can cause whiplash. It can also be a result of a blow to the head, which you might sustain in a game of contact sports.

What happens is this: the sudden impact causes the head to jerk, which in turn puts strain on the tendons and ligaments in the neck.

The pain, stiffness, tenderness, and inability to move the neck that you experience later on are the symptoms of whiplash. These may be accompanied by headaches, dizziness, and nausea.

Recovery from whiplash

If all that sounds unpleasant, don’t worry too much, because there is some good news: the majority of whiplash injuries clear up within a matter of weeks.

All you need to do, usually, is get adequate rest and take pain medication as directed by your doctor. For most people, no complex treatments are required.

Making a compensation claim

Why, then, should you consider claiming compensation for your whiplash injury in Pembroke Dock? Although whiplash isn’t usually a hugely serious injury, it can still disrupt your life, and it can have financial implications, too.

Firstly, a full recovery could be aided by a bit of time off work – and if you’re unable to work, you could lose earnings, especially if you’re self-employed.

Secondly, you might be running up expenses while you recover. You can’t let the house go to rack and ruin after all, but you can’t do all your usual chores, so you might need to hire a home help. In addition to this, you might need to use taxis to get out and about. All of these expenses soon add up.
