    Whiplash compensation claim in Preston

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Preston

    If you’re curious as to how you get whiplash in Preston, you might be disappointed to learn that there is no one definitive answer to that question. This is down to the fact that there are a number of ways that you can suffer a whiplash injury. This type of injury occurs when the head is jolted violently in one direction or another, causing damage to the soft tissues in the neck. From a personal injury claims perspective, a whiplash compensation claim in Preston is one of the most common types of claim that injury victims make.

    When you can make a whiplash compensation claim in Preston

    Perhaps the most common cause of whiplash injuries are car accidents. These make up a great deal of the personal injury compensation claims that insurance companies have to pay out for every year. As you can imagine, being involved in a car crash is probably one of the most likely things that will result in one’s head being jolted violently in any number of directions.

    This is not to say however that there are no other causes of whiplash injuries, because there are. You might be surprised to learn that you can even sustain this type of injury in a slip, trip or fall accident. You might also suffer a whiplash injury from falling off a ladder. As mentioned above, any accident that involves trauma to your neck after your head was jolted violently from one side to another could result in this type of injury.

    If you were responsible for the accident that led to you suffering a whiplash injury, there won’t be much you’ll be able to do about it. If you suffered a whiplash injury after being involved in an accident that was not your fault, this will be quite a different matter. Under these circumstances, there will be a good chance that you can launch a whiplash compensation claim in Preston, or anywhere else here in the UK.
