Whiplash In Cardiff


Unfortunately, if you suffer whiplash in Cardiff through a road traffic accident that wasnt your fault, then this is not the only injury that you could suffer from. There can be terrible consequenses of a road traffic accident somethimes even ending in death.

Because of all of the safety measures that have been done to our cars and on our roads, the number of serious injuries or deaths have reduced gradually. The latest government statistics to the year ended September 2013 show yet more reductions, including less deaths and serious injuries overall.  The biggest reduction however was in the amount of children that have been killed or seriously injured, this was down by 15%.

There are still too many innocent victims of road traffic accidents, but considering the amount of traffic increases by roughly 1% a year, any reduction is better than none.

The minor bumps and scrapes

These figues are for accidents where the police or emergency services have been involved and it is estimated that the figures could be three times as much, as many minor bumps and scrapes are not reported to anyone.

However, you could still be involved in a car accident in which you could end up suffering from a whiplash in Cardiff injury, as most times this type of injury is caused at low speed by one car bumping into the back of another.

A whiplash in Cardiff injury does not only happen through a car accident

A whiplash in Cardiff injury does not only happen because of a car accident. You could suffer the same injury from a motorbike accident, from a slip, trip or fall accident or by something heavy and solid hitting you.

After cars, the next most common way to get a whiplash injury in Cardiff is from riders being thrown from their motorbikes or cycles, quite often because of a pothole or bad road surface.  In fact, there are over 1 million motorbikes on our roads making up 2% of the traffic. It is a sad fact though that they are involved in 20% of road traffic accidents, and are 40 times more likely to die in one than a car driver.

The situation is even worse for cycle riders, and every year the bicycle casualty figures exceed 19,000 and that is just the ones reported to the police.  This information comes from ROSPA, who estimate that the true figure could be many times this amount, because quite often, unless another vehicle is involved, no report is made to the police.
