Do you need help to make a whiplash compensation claim in Stoke-on-Trent
Whiplash is an injury that most people relate to road traffic accidents, usually because of one vehicle running into the back of another. It is true that this is the most common way for it to happen, but there are many other ways to sustain this injury. Any accident that causes a sudden jolt to your head will cause it, and if that accident was the fault of someone else, you should be considering making a Whiplash compensation claim in Stoke-on-Trent.
Why whiplash happens in rear end shunts
In many cases, it is the fault of your seatbelt that you sustain a whiplash injury in this type of accident. This is a small price to pay for the very serious injuries your seatbelt saves you from. It holds your body firmly in place stopping some very severe injuries, but in doing so allows your head to jolt on impact.
Carmakers say that if the occupants of cars used their headrests correctly, the risk of a whiplash injury would be reduced. Research shows that very few people like using the headrest as it should be used, as they are too uncomfortable. This is something the carmakers are working to solve.
If you are the innocent victim of a road traffic accident, or any other type of accident that causes you to be injured, making an accident claim is a way of getting the compensation the law says to deserve.
