Have you suffered pain from whiplash in the UK?
Although car manufacturers have made numerous attempts to increase safety in vehicles, car accidents and collisions can still result in serious injuries and fatalities. While many claim that manufacturing methods in recent years have resulted in safer cars, modifications such as airbags and impact protection don’t prevent all types of injuries.
Unfortunately, a serious injury such as whiplash can be caused by even a relatively small impact. Although you may avoid suffering life threatening injuries, you could still suffer pain from whiplash in the UK. Often, it is the jolt of an impact or collision which would result in pain from whiplash in the UK, so although it is often caused by a car crash this isn’t the only reason that sufferers can experience pain from whiplash in the UK.
If you were on a rollercoaster at a theme park, for example, and it made a sudden stop or jolted, you may find that you sustain whiplash. If this was caused by a fault or bad management, you could potentially make a claim against the theme park’s owners.
Similarly, you may find that you suffer from pain from whiplash in the UK because of an incident on public transport. If you’re travelling by train, tram or bus and it’s involved in an accident or collision, you could sustain whiplash. You may even find that you suffer pain from whiplash in the UK because the transport you are taking brakes suddenly to avoid an impact. Even this sudden jolt could be enough to cause a whiplash injury.
