What is whiplash?
Whiplash is a pretty common injury related to car accidents. Whiplash occurs when the neck experiences a fast jerk, often following a quick deceleration and the rapid forward and backward jolt of the head and neck. Most whiplash injuries are a result of damage to the bone structure and the soft tissues in the spine and neck and can sometimes be related to more chronic disorders. Anybody who was involved in a car accident and believes they could be experiencing signs of whiplash should contact our ‘no win, no fee’ Mildenhall solicitor.
Symptoms of whiplash
Whiplash is often misdiagnosed in patients. However, whiplash victims do present a myriad of symptoms that can help in the identification of the issue. Common symptoms of the issue include: neck pain and stiffness, arm weakness, arm pain, jaw pain, fatigue, dizziness, ringing in the ears, and back pain. All of these symptoms could be a sign of slight to major whiplash and should be reported to a doctor as soon as possible following an auto accident. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and are diagnosed to have whiplash, a ‘no win, no fee’ Mildenhall solicitor through Accident Advice Helpline could help you prepare for a potential claim.
