Whiplash is a painful condition that arises as the result of a sudden and violent movement of the head. It is caused by fibres and tendons in the neck, shoulder and back areas being stretched beyond their normal limits, which can also have an effect on other parts of the body. Although it can result from several different sorts of accident, the most frequent culprit is car crashes, particularly rear-end impacts.
It couldn’t be easier to claim whiplash compensation. Simply fill in the 30 second test and see if you are eligible. Generally speaking, the accident must have happened within the last three years and must not have been your fault.
The symptoms that may lead to a successful whiplash claim can take a couple of days to develop, and can take a variety of forms.
