    Is whiplash a serious injury?


    Are you asking ‘is whiplash a serious injury’?

    If you’ve been hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault you may be suffering from a neck injury. Perhaps you’re asking ‘is whiplash a serious injury’?

    There are several ways a whiplash injury can happen. If you travel by public transport and the bus lurches or stops suddenly you may be thrown forward in your seat. If you’re having fun at the fair and brave one of the rides then you might almost expect a whiplash injury!

    Any situation involving your head being jerked violently can cause a whiplash but perhaps the most common way is to be hit from behind by another motorist.

    So is whiplash a serious injury?

    It can be, but fortunately it often resolves itself in a few weeks. Our advice is always to get medical attention for any injuries suffered in a non fault accident. If you decide to claim compensation for injuries then you will need to have medical evidence. Don’t delay, see your doctor.

    In some cases whiplash can cause ongoing health problems. Even if you have suffered a mild whiplash you will probably have had time off work or had to cancel or change your plans.
