    Whiplash injury in Saltcoats


    Whiplash is more painful than many people who have never suffered from it realise. It is caused by a sudden jolt to the head that tears or stretches the muscles and ligaments in the neck. It is a self healing injury, but as with any sprain it needs time to get better. Often, the symptoms do not appear till 12 hours or more after an accident, and victims think they have not been injured – till the pain starts. If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Saltcoats, or anywhere else in the UK, you could be entitled to compensation if someone else was to blame.

    Suffering a whiplash injury in Saltcoats

    Most people associate whiplash with car accidents, but there are hundreds of different way a whiplash injury in Saltcoats could happen, just a few of them being:

    • Landing awkwardly if you slip, trip or fall
    • Playing contact sports such as rugby or boxing
    • Falling from a cycle, or something else
    • Something heavy knocking your head
    • Lifting a heavy item in the wrong way

    Most people will recover from a whiplash injury in just a few weeks, but for some it lasts a very long time and there are a few who will never fully recover from it. If you think you may have a whiplash injury in Saltcoats, the first thing to do is seek medical treatment.
