You may be asking yourself this question because you keep seeing people making claims for whiplash but don’t quite know how it happens. There are a number of ways in which whiplash can occur, but generally it is a result of car accidents.
Often, it happens when a car hits yours from behind when you are either stationary or moving. Your body is locked into place due to your seat belt but there is nothing to really hold your head and neck in place. On impact, your head moves backwards and forwards quickly which puts strain on your neck and the muscles within it. If you’re wondering, “How do you get whiplash in Hillingdon?” this is how!
Whiplash can also occur when a car hits yours from other angles, such as head-on or from the side, and it can occur at any speed. When the muscles in your neck get damaged, you may not feel pain straight away but it may occur later the same day, or even the next day once you’ve had time to rest.
