We can help you to make a successful claim
You’ve probably heard a lot about whiplash recently. A lot of press coverage has been devoted to the question of why there are so many whiplash claims in the UK – is this a symptom of “compensation culture”, or is there something else at fault? Comparisons to other countries suggest that there are more whiplash claims in the UK, and some have pointed out that with more congested roads, and therefore slower speeds, we should have lower whiplash claims.
However, if you’ve sustained a whiplash injury in Kirriemuir, you might have been asking yourself why it’s not taken more seriously. Whiplash can cause a lot of pain and while it usually only lasts for a couple of says, symptoms can become chronic, lasting over a year.
Research into whiplash in recent years might show not only why it can be so painful, but also why there is so much whiplash injury in Kirriemuir and around the UK.
Whiplash injury in Kirriemuir
Whiplash is caused by the neck being stretched and damaged on impact. The ligaments in the neck are particularly prone to this kind of damage, and it can result in tenderness, stiffness, headaches and even memory loss.
Researchers have noted that such injuries can actually cause more damage on low impact (and therefore at lower speeds), which could go some way to explaining their prevalence on busy city roads in the UK. On top of that, many of the safety features provided by manufacturers such as headrests could, in fact, contribute to the damage done when the neck is extended forward and back, especially in those low impact accidents.
