    Compensation for whiplash in Cwmbran

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Cwmbran

    Personal injury compensation claims are often made because of a neck injury. The most common injury following a road traffic accident in the UK is whiplash and here we tell you more about this painful condition. We can also tell you about claiming compensation for whiplash in Cwmbran with us here at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Whiplash injuries

    We have all heard of whiplash injuries after a road traffic accident but if you are suffering from one yourself you may be realising how painful and inconvenient they can be. They are caused when another vehicle crashes into the vehicle that you are in. Thankfully, you were probably strapped into your seat by a seatbelt and if the collision was serious then the air bags of your vehicle were also probably inflated. This should have prevented your body moving too far but your head was unsupported. It is propelled as far as it will travel in a forwards direction and is then flung backwards.

    It is not hard to see how the ligaments, tendons and muscles in this area can become stretched and damaged. What is surprising, however, is that they do not always start to hurt straight away. In fact, it is often the following day before the stiffness and pain really kick in. For this reason, many people make the mistake of leaving the accident scene without collecting details because they do not realise that they are injured.

    Our advice is that you should always collect some basic details at the scene just in case you start to get symptoms the next day. At least get the registration number and contact details of the driver who caused the accident and of witnesses. Take some photographs if you can.
