    Whiplash injury in Sourton Cross


    If you live in Sourton Cross in Devon, you might be reading this because you are thinking about making a personal injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Sourton Cross. You may have sustained your injury in a car accident, or perhaps you fell from a height, or banged your head when you tripped up a kerb and hit a lamppost. You can get whiplash in any type of accident when you head jerks violently in one direction and then in the opposite one.

    Symptoms of whiplash

    If you have suffered a minor case of whiplash, you will have a stiff neck and be unable to move your head as you normally would without feeling pain. The tendons and ligaments in your neck have been strained, and mostly the only form of treatment is to take.painkillers. Whiplash symptoms can take up to twelve hours after the accident, so your GP may not have noticed it if you were treated for other injuries and shock. However, after an accident you should get yourself checked by a medical professional.

    Sometimes whiplash is more serious and you may experience other symptoms. These might be:

    • Lower back pain
    • Headaches and dizziness
    • Vertigo
    • Pins and needles in the arms, or numbness
    • Pain in the shoulders or between the shoulder blades
    • Muscle spasms
    • Fatigue

    In the case of chronic or acute whiplash, when the symptoms don’t go away in a few months, you might lose concentration and be unable to do your normal routine tasks. This might make you depressed and anxious. Sometimes people who suffer chronic whiplash are unable to continue working and so find themselves in financial difficulties.

    If you have a whiplash injury in Sourton Cross that is serious, you should consider making a claim for you injury.
