Whiplash injury in Hampshire


How you could sustain a whiplash injury in Hampshire. . .

There are many ways that a whiplash injury can be sustained and if you have experienced this kind of injury, you will know, without a shadow of a doubt, how painful this can be.

This type of injury is caused by the neck being forced forwards and backwards quickly, making the curve of the upper spine in the neck, into a ‘unnatural’ S shape.

The strong ligaments that support this part of the spine in the neck, although strong, as not elastic enough to be able to stretch to accommodate this movement. As a result, they become over-stretched, resulting in the inflammation and pain associated with this injury.

There are many different types of accident that can cause someone to suffer from the effects of a whiplash injury in Hampshire;

Car accidents – the most common – and the one to which this type of injury is most associated – is when the occupant is travelling in a vehicle that has been ‘rear-ended’.

Modern cars are now safer than ever in the construction and design; the advent of head rests, for example, prevent far more serious injuries. But, conversely, it is this very safety that has contributed to the rise of such incidents of whiplash!

Another misconception is that a whiplash injury in Hampshire can only happen when the accident occurs at speed. This is not the case! It is the force of the impact that can cause this type of injury which is unrelated to speed. A bump at 5mph can cause a whiplash injury in Hampshire whereas a high speed prang at 60mhp can cause many other kinds of injuries.

Falling, slipping or tripping – again, any kind of accident in which the body faces an impact can cause this unpleasant movement in the neck to ‘snap’ back and forth.

Some people also find that they receive this kind of injury from some contact sports too.

There is no doubt that a whiplash injury in Hampshire is unpleasant and one which many people feel that claiming compensation for is completely justified.
