Even if you only have a minor Neath car accident it can still result in a personal injury, and if you’ve sustained that injury through no fault of your own, you will be entitled to claim compensation.

The most common type of road traffic accident injury is a whiplash injury

The most common of the minor injuries that come about because of road traffic accidents are whiplash injuries, which usually occur when one vehicle drives into the back of the vehicle in front. Sometimes the vehicle in front is stationary, or sometimes it may be moving slowly, however, the impact has to be significant enough to force the heads of the driver and any passengers that car might be carrying, to involuntarily and uncontrollably snap backwards and forwards in a motion that is likened to the lashing of a whip – hence the name.

How whiplash injury is caused

Whiplash injuries can be relatively minor, or more severe and debilitating depending on the force of the impact. Also, although the vast majority of whiplash injuries are caused by a backwards and forwards whiplash motion, they can also be caused by a sideways rocking of the head. Apart from a “crick” of the neck, which at the time of the accident may feel relatively insignificant, the symptoms of whiplash, do not present themselves until some hours after the incident itself; very often the next morning, once the neck has been given the opportunity to stiffen up overnight.

How whiplash injury manifests itself

When the symptoms of whiplash injury do finally manifest themselves, (normally somewhere between 6 and 12 hours, although they have been known to take as long as 2 to 3 days to materialise), they commonly include:

  • Stiffness of the neck
  • Severe neck pain when the neck is moved
  • Stiffness and soreness in the shoulder and upper arm
  • Lower back pain
  • Headache
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty with concentration

Chronic whiplash

According to the NHS, the average recovery period for whiplash injury is 32 days, although chronic cases have been known to last more than 12 months. Whiplash is normally deemed as “chronic” when the symptoms are still present after 6 months.
