Although a very popular place with holidaymakers, Brean is actually quite a small village with only just over 600 residents. The amount of people that are there are in the summer months swells by thousands because there are several caravan parks, a tropical bird garden and lovely sandy beaches, ideal for family holidays.
It sits between Weston Super Mare and Burnham on Sea, which are also very popular with holidaymakers and mean all the surrounding roads get very busy in the holiday season. With all these extra drivers on unfamiliar roads, there are quite a large number of bumps and scrapes between cars, and many victims sustain a whiplash injury in Brean.
Other ways to sustain a whiplash injury in Brean
It is not just road accidents that can cause a whiplash injury in Brean though. People who are not used to riding will hire cycles while on holiday and falling from one of these is a typical way to sustain a whiplash injury in Brean. The same applies to horse riding, which is something many people only do when they are on holiday.
Some funfair rides have restraints that are a bit like seatbelts and they do their job well of holding your body firmly in place. But in this situation your head is still free to roll and a sudden stop on the fairground ride can give your head a sudden jolt, which tears the ligaments and tendons in your neck, resulting in a whiplash injury.
Your rights if someone else was to blame for your whiplash injury
Legally, if someone else causes an accident in which you are injured, no matter what the accident or injury is, you are entitled to claim compensation from the person responsible.
