Whiplash Injury in Dunwich – The Facts
Almost two thirds of those who have suffered a whiplash injury in Dunwich will fully recover within 12 weeks, a third of people will be left with a chronic condition that will recur throughout their life. For 2% they will be left with a permanent disability.
It is women who are more prone to whiplash and the degree of it will increase with age. There is little protection to whiplash, even if you wear your seatbelt and have your headrest positioned perfectly this does not stop a collision from happening. Over 60% of accidents which have caused whiplash will have happened to the front or side of your vehicle, and there will have been little that you could have done to prevent this from happening.
The reason that whiplash is more common now is because our cars and roads are safer. Years ago people didn’t have to wear their seatbelts, this meant that if they were involved in a crash they would likely fly through their windscreens – compulsory seat belt wearing stops this, but can contribute to a whiplash injury.
