    Whiplash injury in Braemar


    Whiplash injury in Braemar

    A whiplash injury in Braemar is one of many injuries that can result from an accident that was not your fault and is most commonly sustained in road traffic accidents. In 2012, 78% of all motoring injury claims submitted to insurance companies were for whiplash injuries, and many more were submitted for a whiplash injury in Braemar sustained in other ways.

    Other ways to sustain a whiplash injury in Braemar

    Whiplash is caused by a sudden jolting movement to your head. This can tear or strain the soft tissues in the neck, and this creates the pain of a whiplash injury. This can happen in a multitude of different ways, just some of them being:

    • Falling from something and landing awkwardly. If you fell off a cycle, motorbike, horse, or anything else, and land with a jolt to your upper body, you head can take the brunt of the force and cause a whiplash injury.
    • Seatbelts in car, on fairground rides and in anything else you need to be strapped in. They do a very good job in holding your body firmly in place, and there would be a lot of serious accidents without them. But in holding your body firmly they can compound the jolting of your head should the vehicle or ride you are stop suddenly.
    • Something heavy or forceful hitting your head can cause a whiplash injury. You could be taking a stroll through the park and your head be hit by a football. If the football had been kicked hard enough, it would easily cause a whiplash injury.
    • Tripping up a broken paving slab, a loose carpet, over trailing wires, or may be on a wet floor can all send you to the ground with a bang, and these are typical ways to sustain whiplash.

    These suggestions of how whiplash injuries occur are just he tip of the iceberg. Should the worse happen and you do fall prey to the negligent actions of someone else you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.
