There are hundreds of different ways to sustain a whiplash injury, it is not only in car accidents that this soft tissue injury happens. Dancers can get it if their routine is a bit strenuous, sports people often get while playing, and it is nothing unusual for it to be caused by an accident at work and for the innocent victim to make a claim.

Where you live, what you do for a living, or whatever you financial situation is doesn’t matter, any can get whiplash very easily just by having a sudden jolt to their head. This can damage the soft tissues in your neck, creating the pain of a whiplash injury. As long as your injury was at least partially someone else’s fault, Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a no win no fee* workplace injury claim in Burnley.

Whiplash from an accident at work

There are many ways you can sustain a whiplash injury while at work. A slip, trip and fall accident can be the cause, if you land awkwardly, or something hitting your head can cause it, as can heavy lifting not carried our correctly.

All UK employers are supposed to protect the health and safety of their employees, and make the work place a safe place to be. There are rules and regulations they should follow and non compliance can very easily lead to an innocent victim being injured in an accident and work, and making a Burnley accident at work claim.

How employees can be affected by a whiplash injury

Most people at some time will have suffered a sprain and will know how painful they can be. Whiplash is a sprain, but because it is in the neck tissues, can affect mobility as well. Whiplash in its mildest form will heal in just a few weeks, but in its worst form can last a very long time, and leave a weakness in the neck and back. For the first few days there are other symptoms that a severe whiplash injury may cause, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Pins and needles or numbness in the arms and hands
  • Muscle spasms
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Lethargy
  • Depression
  • Pain in the neck area
  • Stiffness and lack of movement in the neck area
  • Backache

To be put through all of this because your employer was negligent deserves some sort of recompense and it is why you should make a claim.
