    How do you get whiplash in Havering?

    • What happens to my neck when I sustain whiplash?
      Whiplash occurs when your head is thrust backwards and forwards through a very fast motion, often caused by a quick impact. When this happens, the soft tissue in your neck – made up of various ligaments and tendons – becomes overstretched, either straining or tearing.
    • Should I feel the effects of whiplash straight after the incident?
      Not necessarily. Symptoms can take some hours to develop, often between six to 12, but occasionally as much as a few days later.Often the effects are short-lived and will heal of their own accord. Yet in rare cases they can last up to six months or more.
    • What types of incident can lead to me getting whiplash?
      There are countless incidents which could potentially lead to a person developing whiplash. Some of the most common involve road-related collisions.In such instances, as with many others, the victim should check whether they are eligible for compensation as a result of their injuries.
