Our whiplash compensation has been designed with the whiplash victim in mind. If you’re thinking about making a whiplash compensation claim but just want to know a little more about how a whiplash compensation claim works, then here is a whiplash guide for you.
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash can be a very uncomfortable and painful injury, that can potentially affect a persons long-term health. A whiplash injury can also be really serious, as it covers the very delicate areas of the spine. The neck and mid-back are also commonly affected.
- Swelling in the neck area
- Pain, stiffness or loss of movement in your back or neck area
- Muscle spasms
- Headaches, migraine, dizziness
- Lethargy and fatigue
- Blurred vision
- Nausea and vomiting
- Lower back pain
If you are suffering from one of the above whiplash symptoms then seek immediate advice from your GP.
The treatment of whiplash will always depend on the severity of the case. For a mild case painkillers could be provided and in a severe case with lasting damage extensive physiotherapy will be required. Cervical collars are no longer provided because they are seen as a hindrance to the recovery process.
