Many people assume that someone suffering from a Whiplash injury has been involved in some kind of road traffic accident but actually whiplash can be caused by other accidents such as falling off a bike or horse and in accidents in the work place. Get in touch today if you need accident legal advice in West Sussex.
The actual whiplash occurs when the persons head is thrown forwards, backwards and sideways with a jolt which can easily happen if you slip on a wet floor or trip over something as when you fall your head is thrown forwards, backwards and sideways as you fall and then land. Whiplash means that you have damaged the nerves and tendons in your neck.
This can be a very painful injury and can leave some people never regaining the full movement in their neck and shoulders. Thankfully, in most cases it can be treated with pain relief and light exercise.
If you have suffered a whiplash injury at work or any other type of personal injury in the work place then you could be entitled to make an accident at work claim for the suffering you have been caused, if it was someone else’s fault.
