Are you the victim of a whiplash injury in Kingston upon Hull?

Whilst it’s not considered particularly serious, it can be extremely painful and, in some instances, it may cause on-going complications.
However, a whiplash injury in Kingston upon Hull can be caused in other ways too. A public transport accident, for example, could cause numerous people to sustain a whiplash related injury. As the impact of a collision normally causes whiplash, any incident which involves a collision could cause people to sustain this type of injury.
If you’re travelling by train, for example, and the carriage suddenly comes to a halt or is struck by something, this may cause you to suffer a whiplash injury in Kingston upon Hull.

However, if you’ve been hurt or suffered an injury and you weren’t at fault, there may be action you can take.
Could you make a claim for compensation?
