    Advice on personal injury claims in Cheshire East


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Cheshire East

    People who are involved in road traffic accidents often suffer whiplash injuries. On many occasions they happen when you are hit by a vehicle from the rear. The rear driver is to blame for the accident and you as the front driver may be entitled to make personal injury claim after receiving advice on personal injury claims in Cheshire East.

    What is whiplash?

    It is a neck injury where the head is suddenly moved forwards, backwards or sideways often occurring after a sudden impact such as a road traffic accident. Ligaments and tendons in the neck are stretched or damaged as the head moves violently and vigorously.

    The most common cause of whiplash injuries is road traffic accidents, though there are other causes which may include:

    • A sudden blow to the head- in contact sports(e.g. rugby, boxing, mixed martial arts)
    • A slip, trip and fall where the head is suddenly and violently pushed backwards
    • Being struck on the head by a heavy or sold object (blunt force trauma)

    Making a whiplash claim

    If you were injured because of someone else’s actions or inactions, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. Accident Advice Helpline’s expert legal advisors will first give you advice on personal injury claims in Cheshire East, assess your case and then tell you within no time whether you have a valid claim.
