    Road traffic accidents happen every day all over the country leaving people with minor to severe injuries. Merseyside road traffic accidents leave victims suffering from different injuries. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in a road traffic accidents and has been around for many years even before cars, although in the past it was called other names such as just a pain in the neck due to its main symptom being a pain in your neck.

    Whiplash got its nickname when cars were invented as in car accidents when the injury is caused by a sudden jolt to the head, like a whip movement hence it was given the nickname whiplash.

    Whiplash occurs when damage is done to the neck causing the muscle, tendons, ligaments and nerves in the neck to be torn or stretched. Despite popular belief, however, whiplash is not a medical term.
