Injuries caused by road traffic accidents
The nature of the road traffic accident very much impacts upon the type of injuries you sustain. Fractures, lacerations, bruising and whiplash are all common injuries caused by vehicles. Unfortunately in some severe accidents permanent injury or even death can occur.
Whiplash is often seen as a result of a vehicle collision. The force of the impact causes the head to be rapidly flexed and extended, thus damaging the muscles, ligaments and tendons in the neck and upper back area.
The results of whiplash can be very painful and may restrict your movement. It is important that you have a doctor take a look at your injuries and make an accurate diagnosis. In fact medical review is an essential element for a successful compensation claim.
