    Whiplash injury in Ballater


    In most people’s minds, whiplash injuries are most commonly associated with road traffic accidents. While it is probably true that most whiplash injuries are a result of car crashes, there are other ways of sustaining a nasty whiplash injury in Ballater. Any activity that could result in your head being thrown around in a violent fashion could cause damage to the soft tissue in your neck, which is effectively what whiplash is.

    This might be something that you would like to bear in mind next time you’re visiting a theme park or fairground. Most rides at these types of locations are typically well tested to make sure they are safe, but there can be a chance that a new ride might not be as safe as you thought.

    There could also be a chance that a ride that was part of a travelling fair might not have been put together properly. If you have the misfortune to go on a ride that is in some way defective, you could end up with a whiplash injury in Ballater. If you were to be injured, there will be a good chance that you might well be able to claim compensation from the owner of the ride in question.

    Fairground rides and a whiplash injury in Ballater

    Imagine that you had been talked into going to a fair that had set up shop on your local green. You’re not usually a fan of this sort of thing, but decide to go along nevertheless. Despite your lack of enthusiasm, you have no fear of suffering a whiplash injury in Ballater while you’re there. This confidence will later prove to be misplaced. Against your better judgement, you agree to go on a rollercoaster. This is not a pleasurable experience, what with being buffeted about all over the place.

    You decide that you’ve had enough after this, and talk your friends into going to a nearby bar for a drink instead of persevering with the fairground attractions. As the evening progresses, your neck starts to ache. This gets worse over time, until you decide that a visit to the local A&E is required. Your neck pain is diagnosed as a whiplash injury.
