Find out about the average compensation for whiplash
Whiplash is when the head is jolted forwards and then backwards in a severe fashion. This can cause damage to the neck muscles and ligaments. The most common cause of whiplash is a car accident but it is not the only cause. Whiplash can be because of a bad fall or even from an assault if your attacker comes from behind. Fairground rides can also damage parts of the neck. People who take part in contact sports, like Rugby, can also fall victim to whiplash.
If your head has been jolted badly and you are now suffering from pain and stiffness in the neck or having trouble turning it or bending it, you could be suffering from whiplash. Other symptoms can be pain or stiffness in the shoulders or down the arms. Some people suffer from headaches and dizziness. Others suffer jaw pain and have difficulty swallowing. If all this seems familiar, you should see a doctor.
