It is not only drivers who can make a personal injury claim in Bolton
You do not have to be a driver to be able to claim for a whiplash injury. You could be a passenger in a car or a pedestrian that gets hit by a car and still sustain an injury.
But the injury does not have to be anything to do with a car either; there are many causes of whiplash because it happens so easily.
All it takes is a sudden knock or jolt to your head; this tears or stretches the ligaments and tendons in your neck and that is basically what a whiplash injury is. In fact if the injury was anywhere else in the body we would call it a sprain and, as whiplash is not a medical term, many doctors refer to it as a sprain in the neck.

You could sustain a whiplash injury from:
- Playing sport
- Some object hitting your head
- Banging your head against something
- On fairground rides that have restraints
- Falling off something such as a cycle
- Heavy lifting done incorrectly
These are only a few suggestions; there is no end to the ways victims get a whiplash injury.
