    How do you get whiplash in East Hampshire?

    Personal Injury Solicitors in East Hampshire

    Whiplash is an injury to the neck tendons caused by a jolt to the body that results in the head rocking violently forward, then backward, stretching the tissue beyond its normal range. The tendons become strained and inflamed as a result. Whiplash is an extremely painful condition, although the symptoms are hard to assess. Most victims of this injury recover within a week or two, although side effects can cause complications in a minority of cases.

    How do you get whiplash in East Hampshire?

    In this county, as in any other in the British Isles, whiplash can result from:

      • The impact of a road traffic accident
      • Falling off a horse or bicycle or from a height
      • Any sporting collision

    In fact, any incident that brings a body to a sudden halt, that has been travelling even at a slow speed, can result in this particular injury.

    Complications include migraine, concussion, disturbed vision, extension of pain to shoulders and upper arms, pins and needles, and problems with hearing. For these reasons, it is important that a victim of whiplash take it seriously and has a medical check-up. If your whiplash injury was the result of a third party action, you may be able to claim compensation.

    How do you get whiplash in East Hampshire?

    For example, as a passenger in a vehicle in a road traffic accident (RTA), you may be able to make a claim against the driver or road user responsible for the accident. Responsibility for an RTA may be total or partial, that is, it may be the fault of more than one party, in which case, blame is apportioned accordingly. Usually the insurance companies make the decision, resulting from their investigations and analysis. For any injury on the roads, the police will attend, by law, so there will be a police report which your solicitor will want to see. For whiplash by other causes, for example, at work, there should be an accident report, and colleagues too, may act as witnesses.
