Whiplash Claims & Compensation
Whiplash is usually caused by involvement in a car accident. Even a low-speed collision can cause the head to jolt violently, causing whiplash. However the injury can also occur from a blow to the head and even long term repetitive damage to the area. For example, if you spend a large part of your day cradling a telephone between your head and shoulder, painful injuries could occur.
Claims Direct can help you make a claim for compensation for whiplash.
Causes and symptoms of whiplash
Symptoms of whiplash, the injury that occurs when a sudden jolt or movement causes muscular, tendon or ligament damage in the neck, may take several hours or longer to appear and can get worse as time goes by. Indications of whiplash include:
- Pain, stiffness and loss of movement in the neck
- Dizziness and blurred vision
- Difficulty swallowing
- Muscle spasms
- Tiredness and poor concentration
- Pain in the shoulders, arms or lower back
