Do you want the good news or the bad news? Can there be any good news if you get a whiplash injury in Stocksfield? At Accident Advice Helpline, we do our best to provide you with some – and all you need to do is make a phone call!
More or less everyone has heard about whiplash. You probably know that it involves the neck, too! It is, in fact, an injury to the neck’s ligaments and tendons, which occurs as a result of vigorous movement of the head. This movement jerks the neck and causes the damage.
Whiplash injury is often associated with the sudden impact of a car accident, although it may occur in other ways – for example, if you are involved in a slip and fall accident.
The bad news
Whiplash is painful, and will put you out of action for a while. You will have tender neck muscles, reduced mobility and possibly headaches, too.
Since you cannot go to work or perform many tasks about the house, you might lose income and have to pay for extra help (e.g. a childminder; a home help). Depending on the severity, you could be off work for some time – whiplash might last a long time (this is known as “chronic whiplash”).
The good news
But despite all this, there is some positivity. A whiplash injury in Stocksfield usually clears up fairly soon after the accident, and needs no more than adequate rest, movement of the neck (it is actually better not to immobilise it with a collar!) and painkillers.
Better still, if you have been in an accident and suffered whiplash injury in Stocksfield, you could claim compensation with Accident Advice Helpline!
