    Whiplash injury in Stone


    If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Stone, you will recognise the pain, tenderness and stiffness that you felt in your neck afterwards – maybe the morning after the accident that resulted in your injury.

    But what else do you know about whiplash? Below, Accident Advice Helpline set out a few facts about the condition, and tell you about how to claim compensation if it happens to you!

    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash is an injury to the neck. Specifically, it is an injury affecting the tendons and ligaments of the neck.

    The symptoms are usually tenderness, stiffness and reduced mobility of the neck, accompanied by pain including headaches. Treatment is usually rest and pain medication, although it is best to keep the neck mobile rather than put it in a brace.

    Whiplash usually gets better within a few weeks, and without any need for treatment beyond that which is described above.

    How is a whiplash injury in Stone caused?

    A road accident is usually the cause of whiplash, but it is not the only cause. Whiplash may also result from, for example, a slip and fall or a blow to the head. The cause of whiplash is sudden impact to the head, which causes strain on the tendons and ligaments in the neck.

    Apart from the physical effects, what happens after whiplash?

    If whiplash drags on, it could lead to anxiety or depression. Most cases of whiplash clear up relatively quickly, but some (chronic whiplash) take longer from which to recover.

    Whether your whiplash injury in Stone is chronic or not, you could find that your financial situation suffers. Taking time off work can lead to loss of income, and needing the services of a home help, taking public transport and using prescription medication may mean that you are incurring a lot of additional expenses.

    This is why it is a good idea to consider making a claim for compensation!
