    Whiplash injury in Brierley Hill


    Whiplash injury in Brierley Hill

    It is said that a whiplash injury in Brierley Hill is sustained in almost as many slip, trip and fall accidents as it is in road traffic accidents. Victims sustaining a whiplash injury in Brierley Hill through a slip, trip or fall accident are less likely to make a personal injury claim than those sustaining the injury through a road traffic accident. In fact 78% of all motoring claims last year were for whiplash injuries.

    Being eligible to claim for a whiplash injury in Brierley Hill

    Most people associate a whiplash injury in Brierley Hill with road traffic accidents, and many of them know that if the accident was the fault of someone else, they can claim compensation. What many victims do not realise is that all accidents come within the scope of compensation claims, as long as someone else was to blame.

    The only two other things that have to apply is that your injuries needed medical attention and the accident happened within the last three years.

    The cause of a whiplash injury in Brierley Hill

    A whiplash injury is caused when the tendons and ligaments in your neck become damaged by the sudden jolting of your head in a movement that sends it further than it should go.

    Damage to these types of soft tissues can happen anywhere in your body, it is just that it happening in your neck has earned the nickname of whiplash because the jolt to your head is often like a whipping movement.

    The correct term for it is a sprain in your neck, whiplash being just one of several nicknames it has had over the years.

    The treatment of a whiplash injury

    For a very long time it was thought that the best treatment for whiplash was rest to allow the damage to heal. Then it was said that a few gentle neck exercises each day would help with your mobility. Now the latest way to treat whiplash is to keep as active as possible, and even if it hurts, you will not make the injury any worse.
