What many of us don’t realise or know is that whiplash is not actually not a medical term but it is a nickname that has been given to the neck injuries sustained from a jolting motion. This injury is usually caused when your head is thrown forwards, backwards and sideways suddenly with a force or sudden jolt.
There are many ways you could sustain this type of injury such as falling off a bike or being thrown from a horse as when you are thrown forwards in the air your head goes forwards then as you land on the ground your head is thrown back again. This action then damages the ligaments and tendons in the neck leaving you with what most of us would call a whiplash injury.
Whiplash is though a very common injury in car accidents and many people want to know how to claim for a whiplash injury in North Dorset.
