Whiplash Injury in Knottingley


The town of Knottingley is located within the City of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England. Interestingly, the town is one of few in the UK that has a working coal mine: Kellingley Colliery. 

Although mining coal may not be a common job anymore, that job and many other jobs in similar industries leave employees open to risk, particularly if health and safety measures are not maintained. Such working environments, if left hazardous, could even lead to nasty accidents resulting in serious injuries such as a whiplash injury in Knottingley.
