Whiplash injury in Helensburgh — the facts
Almost two-thirds of those who have endured a whiplash injury in Helensburgh will completely recover in under 12 weeks; a third of sufferers will be left with a chronic condition that will recur throughout the rest of their life.
For 2%, they will be left with a lifelong disability.
It is women who are more likely to suffer from whiplash, and the severity of it will rise with age. There is little that can be done to prevent whiplash; even if you were wearing your seatbelt and had your headrest positioned correctly, this does not prevent a collision from happening. Over 60% of accidents which have resulted in whiplash will have occurred to the front or side of your vehicle, and there will not have been a lot that you could have done to stop this from happening.
The reason that whiplash is more likely to occur now is, ironically, because our vehicles and roads are safer. Years ago, people were not encouraged to wear their seatbelts, meaning that if they were involved in a collision they would quite possibly be thrown through their windscreens; compulsory seatbelt wearing prevents this, but it is this restraint which causes whiplash.
Your eligibility to claim compensation
Fraudulent claims will not be considered by Accident Advice Helpline, nor will they ever be awarded compensation by an insurer. It is reported that 25% of claims for whiplash are untrue, although this should not be wholly believed. It is statements similar to this one which goes towards stigmatising whiplash, and they can deter people from making a claim. If you do have a whiplash injury in Helensburgh, then you deserve to be compensated — the guilty party is not you.
