Can Whiplash Cause Dizziness?

Can Whiplash Cause Dizziness?

Nicholas Jervis, Solicitor (non-practising) and Managing Director of Whiplash Specialists Loyalty Law

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and have been feeling dizzy since the accident you may be suffering from a whiplash injury. This article looks at how a whiplash injury is caused, what the symptoms of a whiplash injury are, how long the symptoms take to appear and how long it will take you to recover from your injuries.

A whiplash injury is caused during the course of a road traffic accident, usually when one vehicle collides with the rear of another vehicle. The impact of the collision causes the head and neck of the driver and/or passengers to be suddenly and forcefully thrown back and forth causing the soft-tissue and ligaments to be stretched beyond their normal range of movement.

The symptoms of a whiplash injury include pain and discomfort in the neck and back, headaches, dizziness, nausea, restricted movement in the neck and pins and needles. You may experience some or all of these symptoms and as soon as you become aware that you may have been injured in the accident you should attend your local A&E department or your GP to rule out anything more serious than a whiplash injury and also to seek advice on how to best treat your whiplash injury.

You may not immediately be aware that you have suffered from a whiplash injury and you may not start to feel dizzy – or experience any of the other symptoms associated with a whiplash injury – until several hours or even several days after the accident. If you have been involved in an accident such as the one described in the opening paragraph you need to be aware of what to expect and appreciate that you may not be aware that anything is wrong until some time has passed.

Whiplash injuries vary in their severity depending on how badly you have been injured. This may depend on the level of impact during the collision and at what speed the vehicles were travelling. Similarly, the amount of time it takes you to recover from your injuries will depend on how severely you have been injured. People suffering from mild whiplash injuries can fully recover within a few weeks of the accident whereas more moderate whiplash injuries could take a few months or even a couple of years to recover from. In rare cases, some victims of whiplash will be left with symptoms which are likely to be permanent.

It is important that as soon as you feel dizzy following an accident – or experience any other symptoms which indicate that you have been injured – you seek medical advice as soon as possible. You should then contact a specialist whiplash solicitor to obtain advice on making a claim.

Why You Must Act Now!

If you have suffered an injury please contact us immediately. Failure to do so could cause your claim to fail or significantly reduce the chances of success for two reasons:

  1. The longer the period you leave before taking action, the less the chance of the success of your claim. This is due to the evidence required to connect the chain of events to prove that your injury was caused by the accident in question.

  2. Our Loyalty Law specialists can only look after a set number of people who have been injured. This is because they aim to provide the highest standards of service and can only do this if they limit the number of people that they help. To give you the best chance of being helped by one of our solicitors get in touch with us immediately or we may not be able to help you.

Delay really can be fatal to your chances of success, so please contact us now and let us take care of you and your claim.
