    How do you get whiplash in Rhondda Cynon Taf


    How do you get whiplash in Rhondda Cynon Taf, or anywhere else for that matter? It happens if your head is caused a sudden jolt that moves it out of its normal comfort zone. This can damage the soft tissues in your neck, which can be very painful and disabling until you have recovered.

    How do you get whiplash in Rhondda Cynon Taf?

    There are endless ways to sustain a whiplash injury, which is why it is one of the most common injuries compensation claims are made for. It can happen by:

    • Falling from a cycle, motorbike or anything else of that sort of height
    • Suffering a slip, trip or fall accident and landing awkwardly
    • Something solid hitting your head
    • Heavy lifting done incorrectly
    • Road traffic accidents
    • Playing contact sports
    • Dancing and athletics

    However you suffered your whiplash injury, if it was in an accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation and should be talking to Accident Advice Helpline to find out for certain.

    The criteria for making a claim

    When you speak to our very friendly advisors, the first thing they will need to do is establish that you are entitled to make a compensation claim. There are just four questions they need the answers to:

    • Was the accident the fault of someone else?
    • Were you injured in the accident?
    • Were your injuries severe enough to need medical attention?
    • Did the accident happen no more than three years ago?

    These are the same questions our 30 second test asks, if you prefer to do things online. Whether you do our test online or with an advisor, you will then be given an estimate of how much your compensation could be. We cannot guarantee the amount at this stage of your claim, but the amount can be a useful guide for you.
