Welwyn Hatfield is a local government district in Hertfordshire, which covers the two towns of Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, as well as a few other small villages. Set within the London green belt, they both retain their own identities, while also being commuter towns for London and other large nearby places.
Both towns have their own attractions that bring visitors to them every year. Welwyn Garden City has nature parks and lots of other outdoor activities, as well as play centres, a museum and theatres. Hatfield has similar things to occupy visitors and residents, and they both have plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants. Both towns are well served by buses and trains, and have good road infrastructure for the huge amount of traffic in the area.

Whiplash accidents in Welwyn Hatfield
Whiplash accidents in Welwyn Hatfield can happen in a variety of different ways. Anything that causes your head to suddenly jolt out of its normal movement zone can cause a whiplash injury, and because it is so easily sustained, it is one of the most common of all injuries we deal with.
When the soft tissues in your neck become damaged, you will suffer pain and stiffness that can be incredibly debilitating. Sometimes the discomfort does not usually start until a few hours after the accident, and it will get worse before it starts to improve. Usually simple painkillers and gentle exercise will allow it to heal within a few weeks.
If the accident that caused your injury in the first place was the fault of someone else, you could be entitled to compensation. Our 30-second test will let you know if you have a valid claim, and will give you an estimate of how much your compensation could be. This can only be an estimate as every claim is unique, and they are all affected by different things relating to your personal circumstances.
The test only asks you four simple questions about your accident and injury, so why not try it today?
