Whiplash is a sprain in your neck, and it is not confined to humans. Any animal that has ligaments and tendons in their neck area, can have an accident that causes them to be torn or stretched, creating a whiplash injury. The difference is that in the animal world, if they have this type of injury they just carry on as normal, and let the injury heal itself – they cannot make a personal injury claim in Broxbourne, even though their injury might not have been their own fault.
Learning from the animals
The latest advice for whiplash a sufferer is exactly what the animal’s do, carry on as normal and be as active as you can. This makes the injury heal quicker, and although it might be uncomfortable, you will not make the injury any worse. The main difference between humans and animals with whiplash injuries is that you can make a personal injury claim in Broxbourne if the accident you sustained your injury in was not your own fault.
The age old injury
The other thing that people do not realise about whiplash is that it has been around as long as we have – it is not something new that appeared with cars. Although most people associate it with a rear end shunt between two cars, it happens in many different ways, basically because it is an injury that is very easy to get.
When railways were invented, people associated it with trains, and then it was called railway spine, and there is not doubt that it has had many other nicknames over the centuries.
