Maesteg road traffic accidents


Maesteg road traffic accidents and accidents all over the country are leaving people with injuries on a regular basis. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries from road traffic accidents. The whiplash injury occurs when the head is thrown forwards and backwards or from side to side with a jolt.

The damage can be to the neck, the neck muscles, the bones or the nerves. Generally cases of whiplash are quite minor and people tend to recover quickly by doing light exercise. In the more severe cases it can last for much longer need specialist treatment such as a neck brace and a period of physiotherapy. There have been several personal injury claims from Maesteg road traffic accidents over the past few years related to whiplash injuries.

Whiplash occurs in four stages. To start with the head and neck are in the initial position before an accident or collision when the neck is stable and there is no force applied. Then there’s the retraction stage when the actual whiplash occurs due to an unusual loading on the tissue. Thirdly the whole neck and head switch to extension and it is then stopped or limited by a head restraint such as the head rest on a car seat. Finally you get the rebound stage which transpires as a result of the previous stages.

Whiplash can be extremely painful and have a lasting effect on the victims and their family’s lives. People who have not had a whiplash injury can find it difficult to understand how someone with whiplash injuries feels.

If you have suffered a whiplash injury that was no fault of your own make sure you seek medical advice and get your injuries diagnosed by a doctor, this way you will have the evidence needed to make a personal injury claim.You should also keep any receipts of costs you may have uncured from your accident due to your injuries.
