Whiplash is a term which is non-medial to describe an assortment of injuries that have happened to the neck and been caused by a sudden distortion. Whiplash is most commonly associated with Road Traffic Accidents, and generally when the vehicle has been hit from behind however whiplash injury in Dunoon is not limited to this and can be sustained during many other incidents, such as; headbanging, falls, bungee jumping and many industrial accidents.
In an average year, there are more than 430,000 claims for whiplash in the UK, which is more than anywhere else in Europe. We have the safest roads in the world, we have some of the strictest laws when it comes to road safety and this is apparent because these are the causes!
We have to wear our seat belts and in built up areas we have to be within a set speed limit; whiplash injuries can occur when vehicles are going at just 5 m.ph and due to the fact we wear seatbelts it is our head and neck which is jolted so violently during impacts, and not the rest of the body – so the brunt of the impact goes to these areas resulting in a whiplash injury in Dunoon.
Before we had cars, whiplash injuries were known as ‘railroad spine’ as they were usually in connection with train collisions and the very first documented case of this injury was in the year 1919 – which puts to bed the hearsay of people calling it a 21st century injury!
Whiplash will generally lead to a person taking up to two months off work, during this time there will be a loss of income matched with added expenses but; make your claim through us and have these worries abolished as we can run any accident related out of pocket expense through our reimbursement service – which is in addition to your compensation.
