Reasons to make a whiplash claim
The most common reason people need to make a whiplash claim is due to being involved in a road traffic accident (RTA). Even people who have been involved in a shunt at relatively low speeds can find they are suffering pain in their neck, back, or shoulders due to trauma to the tendons, ligaments, or other supporting structures at the point of impact.
The reason RTA’s so frequently result in whiplash is down to the lifesaving properties of the seatbelt. Before seatbelts came along, a crash would throw drivers and passengers out of their seats and into the steering wheel or dashboard. Thanks to seatbelts, people are now restrained from this type of trauma, but instead the force of the crash is focussed on the only moving part of the body – the head.
The action of the head moving back and forth so quickly often causes damage to the structures in the neck, back, and shoulders, which can be very painful and long lasting. Accident Advice Helpline is here to help these innocent victims to claim compensation for the pain and suffering they have endured, as well as ensuring they are not left out of pocket as a result of the accident.
