About whiplash: what is it, and when should I expect to recover?

Whiplash is, as you know, a neck injury. Specifically, it is an injury to the tendons and ligaments in the neck, and it causes pain, tenderness and stiffness. It may also cause headaches, dizziness and nausea.

Recovery is, you will be pleased to learn, usually quick and straightforward! You may need a few painkillers here and there, especially in the first few days, and you will certainly need to take it easy for a while. Expect to recover completely in a few weeks. Some cases do last longer, but the majority of cases have a short recovery period.

Will I need care while I recover from a whiplash injury in St Mawes?

Whiplash isn’t so serious that it warrants a hospital stay, and it is unlikely that you will need to have nursing care at home. However, everyone is different – and of course, whiplash may occur as part of a set of injuries that you have sustained, depending on the severity of the accident that caused it.

But even an otherwise fully fit and healthy, young person may find it difficult to keep on top of their household chores, take the children to school and pick them up, go shopping, and so on. For this reason, many people hire home helps and childminders, and take taxis when they need to go somewhere. Some people also need a bit of time off work.

Is this why I might need to claim?

Yes, this is often why people decide to claim for a whiplash injury in St Mawes. There is obviously a problem if your outgoings increase, and especially if your income is cut because you have taken some time off work. Even the loss of a day or two’s worth of pay can have an impact.
