Whiplash Injury in Poynton


Did you know that whiplash doesn’t necessarily have to be caused by a car accident? Many people are surprised to learn this, but it’s absolutely true – if you sustain a whiplash injury in Poynton, it could be for a range of different reasons.

Getting a whiplash injury in Poynton

There is one thing that is needed for a whiplash injury to happen, and that is: sudden impact. When you consider this, you can probably think of a variety of ways in which whiplash can happen: falling off a bike, falling off a horse, slipping and falling on a polished floor, and receiving a blow to the head are just some ways in which claimants have received it.

What to do if you get whiplash

The first thing you should do is seek medical attention. You may not realise that you have whiplash until the morning after the accident; sometimes, the onset takes a couple of days.

Whiplash has several symptoms: pain, stiffness, tenderness and difficulty in moving the neck. Sometimes, there are additional symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea and headaches.

It is easy to recover from whiplash. In most cases, recovery is complete within a few weeks, and all you need to do is get some rest and take painkillers as directed by your GP.

What next?

While you recover from your whiplash injury in Poynton, you might start to worry about your finances. That’s because you could need to take some time off work, which means you could lose income, and because you might need to seek the services of a home help or childminder, use buses and taxis to get around, and pay for prescriptions.

Basically, your income is reduced, but your expenses are up. What can you do about it?
