    Whiplash compensation in Durham


    One of the most common types of injury that can happen as a result of a car accident is whiplash. If you have suffered from whiplash because of an accident that was not your fault then give Accident Advice Helpline a call and see if we can start a claim for whiplash compensation in Durham.

    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash is an injury which is most commonly associated with a car accident. While a seatbelt can prevent you from suffering a serious injury, it does not hold your head in place. It’s the sudden movement of your head on impact, which causes the muscles and tendons in the neck to overstretch.

    In most cases, the symptoms of whiplash will heal up within a few weeks. Some cases are more severe and it’s always worth visiting a doctor to make sure your injury isn’t more serious. The symptoms of whiplash are stiffness and pain when it comes to moving your head and another common symptom is headaches, which can be severe. Some of the symptoms of whiplash can last for a long term after the accident has happened.
