If you are involved in a car accident and you suffer whiplash injuries as a result; if you were not at fault for your accident and it happened some time in the last three years, you could be entitled to compensation.
The law says that, if you are involved in any type of accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to claim for damages from the person responsible for your accident.
A whiplash injury and South Bucks car accident lawyers
Whiplash happens when your head is knocked out of its normal comfort zone, in any direction. This damages your neck ligaments and muscles, and can be very painful and uncomfortable, making every day tasks very difficult. This is why you should claim the compensation you are entitled to, to try and make life a little easier while you are recovering.
Normally you would expect to suffer this injury when another car goes into the back of your car with force. There are other ways for you to suffer this injury, for example:
- Being hit on the head by a heavy object
- Falling over and banging your head
- Being involved in a public transport accident
As long as you were not at fault for your injury, no matter how you contracted it, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim.

The symptoms of whiplash vary greatly, depending on the severity of the South Bucks car accident, but at its worst they could include:

- Stiffness and lack of movement in the neck area
- Headaches and migraines
