Injury Solicitors in Dawlish explain the ins and outs of a whiplash injury claim
Railway spine is the old name for a whiplash injury because before the invention of cars it was common to sustain it in rail crashes. Before the railways it was just a pain in the neck, which is what it still is of course, now we just have a name for it, although whiplash is not a medical term.
Most people relate it to rear end shunts in cars but there are many other ways it can happen. Any sudden knock or jolt to your head will damage the tendons and ligaments in the neck, the result being whiplash.
Whiplash itself is not life threatening, but some of the side affects can ruin people’s lives. It can cause Complex Chronic Pain Disorder where the victim would be in pain daily for the rest of their life.
If you sustain a whiplash injury through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim and you should contact injury solicitors in Dawlish to help you with it.
