Whiplash has a history going back many years, although it has been known by other names in the past. The main symptom is pain in the neck area and for many years, before the invention of railways, that is all it was called, a pain in the neck. With the advent of the railways, it was often sustained in train crashes and soon earned the name railway spine.
This changed with the invention of cars. In the event of a collision, the head is jolted back and forwards, like a whip. As a result, the condition was soon renamed, ‘whiplash’.
Whiplash is not a medical term. The damage caused affects the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves in the neck area. These are the same symptoms as a sprain which, anywhere else in the body is what we would call it.
No matter what it is called, or how you sustained it, if it was not your own fault you may be entitled to claim compensation and our lawyers can help you with this.
