How do I deal with a whiplash injury in Ramsey? Whiplash injury is damage to the neck, causing pain and severely restricted movement. Usually, the sufferer cannot move their head and neck at all, and finds it almost impossible to lie, sit or stand comfortably. The only treatment is patience, accompanied by painkillers and rest.
Who gets a whiplash injury in Ramsey?
This injury is caused by damage to the neck tendons when they are stretched or jolted out of the normal range of movement by a harsh impact. This happens during a car crash, accident on a train or plane, or even a fall from a bicycle, motorbike or horse. It’s the same as any tendon or ligament strain, but especially painful in that part of the body, also rendering the victim inactive for days or weeks. It usually means time off work, and this can mean loss of income and financial difficulty, not to mention extra expense for support services, transport and domestic help.
Whiplash injury in Ramsey – or anywhere – can also happen at work. For example, construction workers, warehouse operatives and personnel working in dangerous and dynamic environments like oil rigs, deep sea fishing vessels, or even cruise ships, are more at risk from the kind of accident that causes this injury.
If you sustained your whiplash injury whilst driving, or being driven, you may be able to claim compensation, if you were a passenger in the vehicle, or if you were driving as part of your work duties.
