Whiplash is a common injury affecting the neck and shoulders. It occurs when the head and shoulders are propelled forwards or backwards at speed, putting strain on the ligaments. Although whiplash is rarely serious it can be very painful, and it causes limited movement in the neck and shoulders, which can make many daily tasks difficult. This is why many whiplash sufferers seek compensation for their injury. But how do you get whiplash in Newcastle-under-Lyme?
How do you get whiplash in Newcastle-under-Lyme?
The majority of the whiplash claims that we handle are caused by road traffic accidents – even a minor collision can cause a whiplash injury. If you suspect that you have whiplash, and you are thinking about claiming compensation, you need to go and see a doctor about your injury.
