    Identifying whiplash injuries

    If you’re suffering from the symptoms of whiplash following road traffic accidents that weren’t your fault, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    Every year, thousands of people receive injuries following an accident, but by far the most common is whiplash. Whether you were the driver of the vehicle involved or a passenger, compensation for your injuries could be due to you.

    How do you know if you have whiplash injuries following a road traffic accident?

    Whiplash is one of the most difficult injuries to diagnose, due to the nature of the damage that can be caused.

    When road traffic accidents occur, the driver and passengers are often thrown forward and backward with significant force. In many cases, the force is enough to strain or sprain muscles and ligaments in the neck and back.

    Some whiplash injuries are not noticeable until some-time after the accident, therefore it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after the accident for a full check-up. We have won compensation claims for many victims of whiplash injuries both at the scene of the accident or some time later, so it’s always worth giving us a call.
