The tiny village and civil parish of Addington lies within Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire. It is around half way between Winslow and Buckingham. It is home to only 145 people and has a parish church (with a bell dating back to 1666) and a shop.
The most notable local historic building in the village is the Mansion House. This nineteenth century building was erected on the site of the much older manor which had close connections to the English Civil War. It acted as the national headquarters of the Parliamentarian forces.
Addington is a quiet and peaceful location in amongst the gently rolling agricultural landscape of the northern half of Buckinghamshire which makes it a lovely place to live. Most of the time, it is a perfectly safe environment and accidents are rare but they are not impossible.
With just a momentary lapse of concentration or just a second of carelessness, a nasty injury can be caused. Behind the accident, there can be a breakdown of communication or inappropriate policies and procedures. Each accident and each injury are different.

Whiplash accident in Addington
Whilst it is true that any part of the human body can get injured in a car accident, the neck is especially vulnerable. In fact, whiplash injuries to the neck are the single most common car accident injury in all parts of the UK. This is because the body is securely fixed to the car seat by a seatbelt. The head, however, moves freely during a collision and that causes the neck to be stretched.
If you have been involved in a whiplash accident in Addington, it is likely that the bones in your neck are undamaged. When you go and see a doctor, they may want to carry out some tests to confirm this. It is more likely that you have injuries to the soft tissues of the neck such as the muscles and tendons. This will give you neck pain, difficulty moving the neck and headaches.
If you are lucky, you will be one of the 13 per cent of whiplash sufferers who only have symptoms for a couple of days. If you are less fortunate, however, you may be one of the 20 per cent who have symptoms for longer than 12 months.
Don’t you think that you deserve to have compensation for an injury that disrupts your life to this extent? We do, so give us a call now.
