A whiplash injury in Charmouth, or one that takes place in any location here in the UK for that matter, doesn’t necessarilly affect all of the people who are sat in the vehicle that is struck; always assuming that the accident is the result of one car driving into the back of another. It’s not unusual to find that male passengers can escape the injury, whilst female passengers fall foul of it. The reason is that generally speaking, men’s neck muscles are stronger than with women’s.
Women are more susceptible to whiplash injury than men
It’s the so-called soft tissue in the neck that becomes damaged in a whiplash incident. The impact of the collision causes the head of the victims to recoil whilst the body is held in check by a seatbelt. But because men’s neck muscles are usually stronger than women’s, they may be able to exert a degree more control that prevents their heads jerking backwards and forwards quite as violently as that of women passengers, possibly preventing the whiplash injury from occurring, or lessening its severity.
Processing whiplash injury claims is going to get tougher
Given the bad publicity that whiplash injury is getting in terms of the number of bogus claims that are being made, and the recent ruling in the Telegraph newspaper whereby a judge dismissed a case for whiplash injury compensation on the grounds that the evidence presented was totally insubstantial; the claims industry is going to have to work harder to obtain compensation for genuine whiplash injury sufferers. It underlines the importance of working with a competent specialist injury claim solicitor, like us here at Accident Advice Helpline.
