WHIPLASH INJURIES

Whiplash INJURIES

Whiplash is not a trivial problem today, because once it has occurred; only about 3 out of 4 have recovered completely in one year and only four out of 5 have recovered completely in two years. In addition to neck pain, there are many symptoms associated with the whiplash syndrome and include sleep problems, poor concentration and memory, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, fatigue, and weakness. It is not unusual to experience whiplash pain some days and even weeks after the accident. Personal Injury Solicitors Dublin’s take a significant number of Whiplash claims in this area day after day.

More and more Whiplash claims occur that are the result of Car accidents. What is Whiplash? Whiplash injuries involve pain, sometimes severe in the neck, shoulders, head or the base of the skull that occurs after a motor vehicle or motor cycle accident. Most patients with whiplash recover in a few weeks or at most, a few months, but a significant minority develop chronic pain.

The Procedure For Whiplash INJURIES?

Neck injuries can have serious consequences and can lead to a wide range of health problems if left untreated, so you must seek medical attention following an accident. If you are sent home by your GP or emergency room doctor following the accident, seek immediate medical attention if you develop new symptoms or experience persistent whiplash symptoms. It is not unusual for there to be a delay of a week or more before they can appear in the body. It is important to note this in preparing your Whiplash claim.

If you are considering making a whiplash claim after your road traffic accident, it is so important that you be well-prepared and we will help you there. We advise you to keep a detailed record of the accident, your symptoms, and your medical treatment and expenses. To be well prepared you need to learn more about gathering evidence to help with your claim, before negotiating with an insurance company or filing a personal injury* claim or whiplash claim.

Although it may take some time, most people eventually fully recover from whiplash with the right medical treatment. Your health care provider, normally your GP, will outline the treatment that is best for you. Generally, improvement should come quickly. If you think you are not improving quickly enough, discuss this with your health care provider.

A rear-end crash is unfortunately very common in Ireland. But many of the older cars, especially those manufactured more than six or seven years ago, offer inadequate protection from the whiplash injuries that can result. Whiplash refers to the rapid snapping back of a person’s head during a road traffic accident collision, which hyper extends the neck and damages nerves and ligaments, often resulting in chronic symptoms such as persistent pain and lack of mobility. It can occur at crash speeds as low as 10 kph.
