    Whiplash injury in Brockhampton

    A whiplash injury in Brockhampton is a very common injury to sustain in the UK, last year 78% of all motoring injury claims were for this type of injury. Most people associate whiplash with a car running into the back of another, but it can happen in any accident that causes your neck to be jolted forwards, backwards, or sideways, damaging the ligaments and tendons in your neck. Apart from rear end shunts it can also happen:

    • When playing contact sports
    • A slip, trip or fall where you fall awkwardly twisting your neck
    • Being struck on the head by a heavy or solid object
    • Falling off your cycle or motorbike
    • On fairground rides
    • Heavy lifting done incorrectly

    However your whiplash injury happens, if it was through the fault of someone else and you had to seek medical attention, providing the accident happened in the last three years, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim and you should contact Accident Advice Helpline to help you.
