    Whiplash Injury in Selby

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Selby

    If you have an accident, you could get whiplash – and it doesn’t necessarily have to be a car accident, either! Here’s what to do if you suffer a whiplash injury in Selby.

    But first, what is whiplash?

    Good question. After all, it’s a term that many of us are familiar with. If pressed, a lot of people might correctly guess that it is a neck injury. But how much do they really know?

    Here are the facts:

    • It is an injury to the tendons and ligaments within the neck
    • It is caused by sudden impact, which makes the head jerk and pull on the neck
    • Its symptoms are pain, stiffness and tenderness in the neck
    • Other symptoms include headaches, dizziness and nausea

    This happened to me, so what should I do?

    Your first priority should be to go to your GP. A whiplash injury in Selby may not be as serious as some other kinds of injury, but you need to have yourself checked over by a doctor – after all, you might have sustained another injury in the accident you had.

    You will be pleased to know that you won’t need to go for any complex medical tests. Your doctor should be able to diagnose whiplash on the symptoms you are showing.

    It will also come as relatively good news that recovery is usually quick, too: most cases of whiplash clear up within a few weeks, and you will require little more than adequate rest and painkillers for a full recovery.

    I’m worried, though. What if I have to take time off work? I could lose income!

    We know you are worried about this prospect. Sadly, it happens to many people. Losing just a day or two of pay can make a huge difference, and the last thing you need when you’re in a delicate state following an accident is to have extra worries of a financial nature.

    That’s why we’re here. Accident Advice Helpline began to help the victims of accidents that had caused people to get injured. Fourteen years later, we’re still here – in fact, we’ve grown to become one of the UK’s largest law firms!
