Types of Injuries

This occurs when someone has been involved in a motor accident. Technically whiplash can only occur when you have been hit by another vehicles from behind; but a similar injury can occur during other impact accidents and are treated the same way. Symptoms include stiffness of the neck, headaches and sometimes giddiness and back pain. Broken limbs occur from slips, trips and falls and are another common personal injury for which people claim. One of the more uncommon after effects of an accident is trauma.

What is trauma?

Trauma is the after effect of the shock created by the accident. Whilst many people are strong enough to withstand the effects of the accident and move on others are badly affected, sometimes for long periods of time.
