A low speed car crash can still cause severe injuries such as whiplash; even if the car accident seemed minor compared to others you may still have sustained some painful and long lasting injuries. If you come to the personal injury solicitors at Oakwood for help making your claim we will endeavour to secure you full recompense for any injuries you have sustained.
Whiplash is the most common injury associated with car accidents of any nature; whiplash comes in varying degrees and even though it is not an official medical term it is the term used to describe injuries to the soft tissues in the upper part of the body caused by a sudden movement.
Even if you do not feel injured immediately after the car accident you should still seek the opinion of a medical professional as whiplash injuries can take up to 24 hours to become apparent. The most common symptoms of a whiplash injury are:
Pain and stiffness in the neck and difficulty moving the head. Sometimes the pain and aching will spread to the shoulders and even the upper arms.
Some sufferers of severe whiplash may experience pain and discomfort in their upper or lower back.
Sometimes whiplash is accompanied by a headache; this could also be concussion if your head has made contact with an airbag.
Dizziness blurred vision and pain in the jaw can stem from a whiplash injury but should fade relatively quickly.
After an accident when a whiplash injury has occurred victims may feel tired an d irritable for a few days afterwards.
If you have experienced any of the about you should speak to a solicitors about the possibility of making a claim for compensation.
You should still seek medical assistance after an accident even if it was a low speed crash as you may still develop some degree of whiplash. We can help you claim compensation for any whiplash injuries you have sustained.
