Whiplash is generally caused by trauma to the head and neck. The trauma may result from a road traffic accident or a fall. The impact of the trauma forces the neck to move in ways that result in strained muscles, ligaments and nerves. If you have been involved in an accident that has caused neck injury, you need to receive medical attention to assess the extent of the damage and to receive appropriate treatment.

For, if you have had an accident that wasn’t your fault and you are now suffering from the symptoms of whiplash such as neck pain and neck stiffness, spine and shoulder pain and headaches you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
How much compensation for whiplash in the UK?
The amount of compensation depends on many different factors including the severity of your symptoms, how long you have been affected and the severity of impact on your daily life.
Recovery from whiplash can take days, weeks or months depending on the severity of your condition. During this time your ability to carry out your usual daily routine may be severely impaired. For example, you may have problems washing and dressing. You may not be able to stand at a stove and cook. You may even have difficulties sleeping properly which may result in problems with concentration as well as irritability and possible mood problems.
All these impairments caused by your whiplash can contribute to your pain and suffering and do not even start to take account of your ability to work.
For if you have suffered whiplash you may not be able to work. This clearly will have an impact on your wallet and will affect your ability to balance your household budget. This can also cause stress.
