Car accidents are literally a pain in the neck. If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Stockton, you could be off work for a bit – and losing more than just your income.
If you are in a car accident and you later find that your neck hurts, you could be suffering from a whiplash injury in Stockton.
The symptoms of whiplash
Commonly, people who have suffered a whiplash injury complain of a stiff, tender, painful neck. They have difficulty moving it, and headaches might accompany the neck pain.
They might visit their GP the day after the accident, if they haven’t been checked out at hospital soon after, and report the pain then. It may take around half a day for the pain to become apparent – and it could feel worse for a few days after that.
What a whiplash injury in Stockton could mean
Having such an injury could mean having to take time off work. Most whiplash cases aren’t serious to the extent that surgery is required, for example, but some cases can drag on for a while and become chronic whiplash.
But even in normal whiplash cases, the need to be off work can mean a loss of income. On top of this, you could be paying for extra help from, for example, a childminder or a home help. You may also need to use taxis and buses, because you can’t drive; then, of course, there are the prescriptions that you may need.
