One of the most common injuries from all types of accidents in whiplash. This is because it happens so easily, just needing a sudden jolt to the head to tear or stretch the ligaments and muscles in the neck, and that is what causes the pain.
Tough times ahead
The problem is that it’s become rather fashionable to register a claim for whiplash injury, whether or not the claim is genuine. Insurance companies have been somewhat lax in agreeing to pay out large sums of compensation which they have then reclaimed from the British motorist by increasing premiums on motor insurance. In the clampdown that is said to be coming, the outcome is likely to be that it will be more difficult for genuine whiplash injury victims to claim compensation, thanks to the unscrupulous tricksters.
