Every year, millions of people are legally entitled to compensation for being involved in non fault accidents where they have suffered, such as with a whiplash injury in Dunkeld – maybe through a transport accident, industrial accident or even through leisure activities such as playing sports.
Although we are aware that there is somewhat of a stigma attached to a whiplash injury in Dunkeld you actually do not benefit by not claiming compensation. This is because of the fact that the people most likely to cause accidents; motorists, employers etc. are people with responsibilities and insurances to pay – these will not go away if you do not claim, which means that the only change will be that you are not compensated for your suffering of a whiplash injury in Dunkeld.

Whiplash and the Facts
Whiplash is the word for injuries which are sustained to the neck and come from a sudden impact accident, where there has been speed and force used to damage the ligaments and tendons in this area. These tissues can snap, be torn or stretched and this is where the agony comes from for a whiplash injury in Dunkeld.
For many victims, they will recover with ease and the pain will subside well, for some it can produce a lifetime of effects and for 1 in 10 of victims it will produce a permanent disability.
Whiplash was actually first claimed for over a century ago in the 1900’s and was back then linked to steam-train accidents. This means that whiplash is certainly not a new injury, contrary to speculation.
