Whiplash injury in Banknock


If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Banknock just outside Falkirk in central Scotland, you may need the services of a good online specialist injury claim solicitor, like ourselves here at Accident Advice Helpline.

Whiplash injuries and RTAs

Whiplash injuries are often caused by road traffic accidents. Any sort of impact that causes someone’s head to uncontrollably jerk violently backwards and forwards, or sideways, can result in whiplash injury. It’s caused by the damage sustained by the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the neck, and can easily happen even if you’re sat inside a stationary vehicle, and another vehicle hits your vehicle in the rear.

Don’t drive when you’re tired

This type of accident involving one stationary vehicle being struck in the rear by another moving vehicle is typical of a careless, negligent, or tired driver. Just taking your eyes off the road for a couple of seconds can be enough to miss the fact that the vehicle in front has come to a halt. Also, what happens, especially in places like Scotland, where people drive long distances when coming on holiday, is that drivers can fall sleep at the wheel, and as a result, collide with another vehicle.

To claim for a whiplash injury in Banknock, a third party must be to blame

One thing to bear in mind should you sustain a whiplash injury in Banknock is that the blame for the accident has to be attributable to a third party; so if it’s you that failed to realise the vehicle in front had stopped, and you sustained a whiplash injury as a result of the impact, you wouldn’t be eligible to claim. However, the driver and any passengers who sustained a whiplash injury in the vehicle that you ran into, would be entitled, and justified in instigating a claim. The same goes for any type of personal injury claim that people raise; someone other than the injured person must be to blame for the incident/injury.
