Most people know that you can sustain a whiplash injury in a road traffic accident, but have you ever considered the other ways in which it might happen?
A whiplash injury in Brentwood from a slip, trip or fall
Many victims sustain a whiplash injury in a slip, trip or fall, which is the most common type of all the 3 million accidents that happen every year in the UK. Slipping, tripping or falling can cause some nasty injuries, and if you happen to bang your head or shoulders as you go down you could easily sustain a whiplash injury.
A whiplash injury in Brentwood from a work-related accident
There are many accidents at work in which you could sustain a whiplash injury, or much worse. Your employer has to protect your health and safety while you are at work, but if they fail in this duty you should consider making a personal injury compensation claim.
A whiplash injury in Brentwood from a cycling accident
Cyclists are very vulnerable on our roads because of the lack of protection they have. Most cycle accidents do not involve another vehicle, but are caused by potholes or bad road surfaces. In accidents of this type, quite often the cyclist is thrown from their bike and sustains a whiplash injury, for which they can make a compensation claim against the local council.
A whiplash injury in Brentwood from playing sports
Playing contact sports is a way in which victims often sustain whiplash injuries. Sports such as boxing and rugby often cause the jolting movement that damages the ligaments and tendons, thus causing the pain and stiffness experienced by whiplash sufferers.
