    Shotton Accident at Work Claim

    Do you need to make a Shotton accident at work claim for whiplash? Whiplash is a common injury sustained in an accident at work. Whiplash is not a medical term but is a commonly known nickname for a neck injury. Whiplash can be caused by damage to the neck bones, the surrounding tissue or the neck muscles or tendons.

    Whiplash can be very minor and its victims recover quickly with no long lasting effects, however it can also be very serious and can have a very long recovery period with a severe amount of pain. Its victims can need lengthy treatments and in some of the worst cases people suffer from long-term effects, sometimes permanently.

    Whiplash is usually caused by an accident which causes its victims head to be thrown forwards, backwards and sideways with force. It can be very painful. You may need to take time off work, have to take regular pain relief, possibly wear a neck brace and have to undergo regular physiotherapy sessions to regain full movement.

    If you suffer from a trip or fall at work then you are quite likely to suffer from a whiplash injury and if the accident was not your fault you may be able to make a Shotton accident at work claim for compensation for your personal injury.

    Employers have a duty of care to keep all their employees safe while they are at work and do everything within their power to prevent accidents and injuries. However, realistically we all know that we cannot prevent accidents from happening which is why employers will have taken out an insurance policy to pay out compensation to employees who are injured on their premises while at work.
