An example of a personal injury is a whiplash injury in Accrington, in which a person sustains a chronic injury to their spine in the neck area. Whiplash can occur through a sudden impact causing the head to be thrown side to side, resulting in the vertebrae being contorted in such a way that the discs in the spine become dislodged, causing severe discomfort to the recipient.
A whiplash injury in Accrington can be a very long-term ailment, with sufferers often being inflicted for the rest of their lives either through physical pain or sometimes the psychological symptoms that have occurred, making the recovery time prolonged.
If you have had the misfortune of being injured in an accident, and it was not your fault, rest assured that a solution is around the corner.
