Solicitor in Standish
A whiplash sprain is a likely injury for those involved in more sudden impact accidents such as road traffic accidents. It is the effect you are left when if your head, neck or back have been suddenly jolted forwards and backwards, or vice versa, this causes the ligaments and muscles in those areas to stretch suddenly.
It is common to those who have been in a vehicle which has been hit from behind without warning. The majority of cases which involve whiplash will heal over time, but for some it can be a longer period of time and have a real debilitating effect on the day to day activities and the ability to work. Damage to the spine and spinal cord can occur in more severe cases which will require many medical appointments and treatment – all covered through the Reimbursement Service provided by our solicitor in Standish.
It is a fact that women are more prone to receiving whiplash due to the muscles tending to be weaker and more easy to damage. Whiplash can occur even in minor bumps and crashes or surprisingly during a sporting event or seemingly minor everyday activities. The accident type most prone to whiplash are road traffic accidents, but it can also occur during a slip, trip or fall, Industrial Accident or accident within the home – basically anywhere where your neck, or back, has been forced to move suddenly.
