Myths and Facts Regarding a Whiplash Injury in Easingwold with the Accident Advice Helpline
The increase of personal injury claims can be often blamed on just one thing – whiplash injury in Easingwold. Behind every public rage there is some truth, but there’s also an abundance of myths, hearsay and untruths. Here are some common myths regarding a whiplash injury in Easingwold…
1. Whiplash isn’t a severe injury – Actually, one of the main issues regarding diagnosing and treating a whiplash injury in Easingwold is that it can easily have a variety of symptoms with a dramatic range of severity. In some cases, whiplash produces injuries which are minor and will only be temporary. However, some whiplash sufferers can endure a life-long, life-limiting problem and one with little/no hope of a permanent cure.
2. Whiplash can’t be caused by low speed ‘bumps’ which arise daily on congested city streets – Whiplash is actually much more likely to be sustained during a low speed crash than any other injury. There is a reason behind this, which is both simple and scientific…
3. Whiplash injuries are simply invented after an accident – A unique property of a whiplash injury in Easingwold is that the signs and symptoms are actually rarely immediately obvious and are often delayed by several hours or even days. This aids speculation about claimants leaving an accident unharmed and then claiming to be injured later on when people think they have decided to go for compensation – it’s actually more probable that their injuries have just become apparent!
4. Most whiplash claims are fraudulent due to the statistical rise in them – We would like you to consider the facts for a moment. The rise in claims for whiplash are based within our main cities – London, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham. These are places which have undergone big changes with none more apparent than the level of congestion – this is many more vehicles than previously, traveling at a lower speed: the ultimate conditions for low speed collisions and therefore a whiplash injury in Easingwold. We know this to be cause and effect, the facts are evident.
Behind every myth is an element of fact, but maybe rather than blaming those who have suffered we should look towards our own driving abilities and our transport infrastructure.
