Whiplash is usually associated with car crashes of some sort, and is one of the main reasons people make an injury claim in Abercarn. Whiplash is not a new condition that appeared with the invention of cars, it has always been around, but it has had several other nicknames before this one.
We say nickname because whiplash is not a proper medical term, the injury is actually a sprain in your neck, and that is how the medical profession usually refer to it.
But no matter what you care to call it, if the accident that caused it was the fault of someone else, you may be able to make a personal injury claim in Abercarn.
Why you might consider a personal injury claim in Abercarn
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries to happen, because it is so easily sustained. There are many ways that victims suddenly find they have the problem, such as:
- Heavy lifting done incorrectly
- Something heavy hitting your head
- A slip, trip or fall in which you land awkwardly
- Road traffic accidents
- Fairground rides that have restraints
- Falling from something like a bike or horse
All its takes to cause a whiplash injury is a sudden jolt to the head. This can stretch or tear the ligaments or tendon in the neck, which is what causes the pain of a whiplash injury.
