With so much traffic in and around London these days, being involved in a road traffic accident in which you sustain a whiplash injury in Barnet is not at all uncommon. Women tend to suffer from whiplash injury more readily than men, generally speaking because men’s neck muscles are usually stronger.
The causes of whiplash injury
Whiplash injuries are generally caused by road traffic accidents, although it is also possible to sustain them through taking part in contact sports or if you are subject to a physical assault, too. But it’s the high incidence of road traffic accidents here in the UK that leads to the vast majority of whiplash injuries taking place.
The road traffic accident in itself doesn’t have to be particularly serious. In actual fact, most whiplash injuries are sustained in relatively minor accidents, whereby the vehicles involved are doing less than 14 mph. More often than not, it involves one stationary vehicle which is driven into the back of by another moving vehicle.
