The Fylde Coast, in Lancashire, attracts many visitors all year round. It is particularly popular for summer holidays, and perhaps the best known town in the area is Blackpool.
But there is another popular place nearby, St Annes on Sea. It offers a different character and atmosphere from Blackpool; perhaps even a more relaxed pace. But it is still possible to sustain a whiplash injury in St Annes on Sea. If this happens, you could put in a claim for compensation.
Who can claim compensation?
If the accident that caused your whiplash injury in St Annes on Sea was caused by someone else, then you could be eligible to claim. This could be the other driver, if it was a car accident. Equally, it could be your employer if you slipped and fell at work. Yes, you can get whiplash in slips and falls too.
What is it that actually causes whiplash?
The fundamental thing is sudden impact. If there is sudden impact, then whiplash is a possible outcome. You can get sudden impact in the situations described above, but you might also experience it windsurfing, or falling off your bike.
What are the symptoms of a St Annes on Sea whiplash injury?
Usually, people experience pain, stiffness, and tenderness. They may also have a headache, nausea and dizziness.
The thing to realise is that these symptoms may not become apparent until a few hours after the accident, or even a few days.
It’s best to get to your GP as soon as possible, though. A doctor can diagnose whiplash easily, and they will also be able to check whether you have suffered any other injuries.
