Accident Advice Helpline is sometimes called upon to help with launching a claim for compensation with regard to sustaining a whiplash injury in Bardsey.
Need our help?
The suburban village of Bardsey is located approximately 8 miles from Leeds city centre. It’s mostly residential, inhabited by a mixture of retired couples, and people who live here and take a daily commute into the city for work. It’s precisely the sort of area where relatively low speed road traffic accidents (RTAs) happen that result in whiplash injury; the average speed for whiplash injury being under 14 mph.
Roundabouts are a common scene of RTA that result in whiplash
Roundabouts are one of the most common places where whiplash injuries are sustained. Drivers approaching a roundabout tend to focus on the traffic already on the roundabout, looking to make a quick entry into whatever small gap may occur in the traffic flow. In doing so they sometimes forget or don’t notice that the car in front has come to a halt; the result being that they then drive into the back of that stationary vehicle.
Drivers and passengers in stationary vehicles often come off worse
Often the driver at fault is not injured; but the driver and any passengers in the stationary vehicle (being totally unaware and unprepared for any collision), take the full force of the collision, their heads recoiling violently as a result, and sustaining whiplash injury.
