Whiplash injury in Failsworth


Failsworth is a town in the Borough of Oldham in Greater Manchester located just under four miles from Manchester city centre. Once a small agricultural town which thrived on its farming and hand-loom weaving industries, Failsworth later became a mill town home to a number of cotton mills. Today it is still known for its hat production. With a population of 20,680 in 2011, many residents here commute to work in Manchester either by car or by the Metrolink Tram. If you are involved in a car or tram accident, you could suffer a whiplash injury in Failsworth, but who is to blame for your accident?

How did your accident happen?

It could be that your whiplash injury in Failsworth was caused when another speeding vehicle hit yours, causing a collision. When your head and neck is jerked suddenly forwards and then backwards as the result of a collision, whiplash can occur, causing pain in the neck, head and shoulders. But a whiplash injury could be the result of a tram or train collision too, and the operating company or driver could be held liable for your injuries.
