    Whiplash claim for negligence


    One of the most frequent enquiries we receive at Accident Advice Helpline is regarding whiplash. Whiplash and negligence go hand in hand.

    Over 1,500 whiplash claims are processed throughout the UK each day, making it one of the most common personal injury claims. If you’ve suffered whiplash within the past three years in an accident that was not your fault, you too should consider making a whiplash claim for negligence in the UK.

    The law states that if you’ve been injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence, you have a right to make a claim. That right is there to protect innocent road users who often find themselves nursing painful, long-lasting injuries, even when they’ve done nothing wrong. If you’ve been sat at traffic lights, or have been stationery in traffic or were even moving when you were hit from behind, it’s normal for your neck and head to be injured upon impact.

    When the head is “whipped” back and forth, or hyperextended (thrown back) or hyperflexed (thrown forward), the muscles and tendons in the neck can be damaged. In severe cases, the vertebrae in the spine may too be damaged, leading to potentially lifelong complications. If this has happened to you and your accident took place within the past three years, don’t just settle for living with these consequences. When in need of expert personal injury lawyers to make a whiplash claim for negligence in the UK, residents should turn to Accident Advice Helpline.
