Getting a whiplash injury in Seaford could mean that you experience some problems afterwards, and your troubles could go beyond the actual symptoms of whiplash.
Don’t be unprepared – read on to find out what you can do if it happens to you.
The immediate problems
When you get a whiplash injury in Seaford, the immediate problems you face may not even be the injury itself – often, the symptoms do not appear until a few hours later, or even the next day or so.
Depending on how the injury occurred, these may be of concern to you:
- Dealing with the police and the other driver at the scene of the car accident
- Having to walk because your bike has been damaged when the wheel sank into the pothole on the cycle path
- Having to seek veterinary assistance because your horse got injured, which caused you to fall off it when you were riding
There are many other possibilities, too, because whiplash injury in Seaford has many causes – all that is needed is for sudden impact to make your head jerk, which puts strain on your neck.
Some hours later
When your symptoms do show, they will be in the neck, and will include:
- Difficulty in movement
There may be other symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness, and nausea.
The way to address these problems is to go to your GP, who will be able to make a diagnosis on the basis of the symptoms, with no need for any complex tests.
During the recovery period after a whiplash injury in Seaford
It is when you are recovering that a further problem may present itself: financial difficulty. If you’re wondering how your finances could be affected by whiplash, consider that you may need to take time off work, which could cause you to lose wages.
In addition to loss of income, you could have additional expenses. Many people need to hire a home help or a childminder, take buses and taxis to get out and about, and pay for prescriptions when they are suffering from whiplash.
Recovery may, in the majority of cases, be brief – but that doesn’t mean it can’t cause money worries.
