Whiplash Injury Claim in Redhill Road Traffic Accidents
Whiplash is an injury claim Redhill drivers often have occasion to apply for. It’s caused by the sudden “whipping” movement of the head and neck, hence the name. It’s most commonly associated with road traffic accidents (RTA’s), when upon sudden impact, the head is whipped forward with alarming force. But, Whiplash is not only caused by a foward motion; it’s also caused by sudden backward, or sideways motion. Although most often associated with an RTA, whiplash can be caused by other incidents or accidents too.

Redhill is like most busy towns today in as much as the traffic on the roads is constantly increasing. In fact, because of its close proximity to the M25, one of the busiest motorways in the UK, the town experiences more traffic than most. It’s therefore hardly surprising that the RTA rate is high.

- Pain and stiffness in the neck
- Pain and stiffness in the shoulders
- Dizziness and nausea
- Pain in the jaw
- Pain in the arm
- Weakness in the arm
- Back pain

- Problems with vision
The degree or severity of whiplash is dependent on a variety of circumstances, such as the speed that the car was traveling on impact, and whether the impact was with another moving vehicle, or a stationary one. More chronic cases of whiplash often have the following symptoms:
- Feelings of anger
- Anxiety, depression, and stress

Some victims become dependent on drugs, and experience feelings of isolation.
