If you have been injured as the result of an accident in which you have sustained whiplash through no fault of your own, then you may be eligible to pursue a no win no fee Dornoch personal injury compensation claim.
What is a whiplash injury?
Whiplash is defined as trauma to the soft tissues in the neck, which occurs when the neck is thrust violently and suddenly forwards, backwards or sideways. This sudden movement of the neck can stretch and damage ligaments and muscles in the neck.
Symptoms may include:
- Severe pain in the neck;
- Restricted movement;
- Stiffness in the neck;
- Pain in the shoulder;
- Pain between the shoulder blades;
- Blurred vision;
- Ringing in the ears;
- Lethargy; and
Whiplash is diagnosed by a detailed examination of the neck and range of movements. If a spinal injury is suspected, then medical practitioners may use MRI or CT scans to show any damage to the soft tissues, discs and ligaments that don’t show up on X-rays.Open Claim Calculator
