Whiplash Injury Compensation West Malling

Symptoms of whiplash injury can occur at any time after your accident, it may be 12 hours before you begin to feel symptoms, and even when you do start to feel discomfort normally it is not at its worst when first signs show. If you believe you could be entitled to compensation due to a whiplash injury then please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your claim.

Here at David Stinson & Co solicitors in West Malling we take pride in what we do, we like to ensure all our clients are dealt with professionally and honestly to give you a safe reliable service.

Symptoms of a Whiplash Injury

In many cases of whiplash symptoms can be delayed until hours or even a few days after your trauma. Symptoms of whiplash can often be mistaken for something else if they are not severe. To help you recognise the symptoms of a whiplash injury here are a few:

  • Pain and stiffness in your neck.
  • Swelling to the neck restricting full movement.
  • Headaches caused by the stress on your neck.
  • Pain to your lower back.
  • Pain and numbness to lower back and limbs.
  • Pins and needles in your arms and hands.
  • Muscle spasms.
  • Dizziness.
  • Tiredness.
  • Difficulty swallowing.
  • Blurred vision and ringing in the ears (Tinnitus).
  • Memory loss (it is less common).
  • Nausea
  • Lethargy

In most cases of whiplash a full recovery occurs within in a few days or a few weeks. However, in some cases the pain and stiffness can continue for a few months and in rare cases symptoms can persist indefinitely. The level of compensation will depend upon the degree of pain and stiffness and the period over which it persists. We will advise you about the appropriate level of compensation when pursuing your no win no fee whiplash injury compensation claim.

Causes of a Whiplash Injury

Whiplash is caused when a person suffers a sudden jolt to the head or body, which can damage muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues in the neck or back. When we hear someone has sustained a whiplash injury we automatically think that it was as a result of a road traffic accident, however there are other accidents that can cause whiplash including,

  • Slips
  • Trips
  • Falls
  • Sport injury
  • Assaults and attacks

If you believe you have suffered a whiplash from an accident that was not your fault, whether a car accident or from any other type of accident then please contact us for more information.
