Whiplash injury in Severn Beach


How does a whiplash injury in Severn Beach happen? Very often, whiplash is caused by a car accident (although it’s by no means the only cause). Would you know what to do if you were in a car accident that was the other driver’s fault and you got whiplash?

What to do at the scene

You may feel a bit shaken when you are at the scene. After all, you’ve just had a bit of a shock: one minute, you’re driving along; the next minute, someone rams your car from behind at the lights, or from the side if they’ve come out of a side street without looking.

But it’s important to take care of a few things:

  • Make sure everyone is OK – if anyone is injured, call an ambulance if needed (and certainly the police)
  • Exchange your name, address and vehicle registration number with the other driver
  • Gather contact details of any witnesses to the accident
  • Take photos of the scene, any damage, and the road conditions (your mobile phone camera will be sufficient for this)

What to do when you get home

Get some rest. You will probably be quite tired and even if you think you are not injured, you could in fact have a whiplash injury in Severn Beach. This may not become apparent until the following morning, but you will experience the following symptoms in your neck:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Tenderness

You may also have a headache or feel sick and dizzy. Whatever the symptoms are, get to the doctor as soon as you can. It won’t take your GP long to diagnose whiplash – the symptoms alone should be sufficient.

What to do after your doctor’s appointment

Begin your recovery! It usually takes no longer than a few weeks and you will find that you need little more than rest and painkillers to see you through this period.

You may need to take some time off work, and hire a home help, a cleaner, or a childminder so that your usual tasks get completed while you’re not capable.
