Why do you get whiplash?
Whiplash is a name for damage within the neck area; particularly the soft tissues, tendons and ligaments which are there to act as protection. During a high impact, forceful collision which jerks the head from one direction to the other with speed, these tissues can rip, stretch and tear which is where the incredible pain of whiplash comes from.
Whiplash happens in the majority of road traffic accidents, but it can also be the result of industrial accidents, slips and falls or physical violence. If you received immediate hospital or medical treatment after your accident, it is likely that whiplash will not have been detected. This is because it can take up to two days to become apparent.
Whiplash can be easily diagnosed by any medical professional, even your own GP. If any of the following signs and symptoms sound familiar to you then you may have a whiplash injury in Little Sutton and you may be able to make your 100% no-win, no-fee claim through Accident Advice Helpline:
