Require a personal injury lawyer in Ivybridge for your whiplash injury claim?
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is the medical term used to describe an injury sustained to the neck and surrounding area. Whiplash can occur when the neck is jolted suddenly and violently causing the neck to move beyond its usual range. This causes the ligaments, tendons and muscles to overreach and overstretch.
How is whiplash caused?
Common causes of whiplash include:
- Road Traffic Accidents: neck muscles over extend when the vehicle sustains an impact during a collision or from the force of stopping abruptly.
- Slip, Trip or Fall: a fall down a flight of stairs can make the head jolt violently and this can put strain on the neck muscles and cause whiplash.
- Accident at Work: a strike to the head with a heavy object can cause whiplash or by receiving a blow to the head, perhaps during a physical assault.
