Whiplash injury in Lynton


Lynton might be familiar to you if you have ever had a holiday in North Devon. It lies on the Exmoor coast and is often referred to in association with another town by the name of Lynmouth. Lynton is on top of a cliff, while Lynmouth is at the foot of it. Many holidaymakers visit the two towns while in the area, but few would ever find themselves going back home after suffering from a whiplash injury in Lynton.

It is always wise to take extra care when driving along unfamiliar roads. However, with that said, you could easily find you have some challenges thrown at you by way of actions taken by other drivers. How do you know when someone might come around the corner in the middle of the road, for example, or when someone might be speeding?

How long does whiplash last?

Whiplash is essentially a sprain in the neck region, and it most often happens precisely because of a car crash. The impact and sudden stop of the vehicles involved can easily cause this injury, because so much pressure is put on the neck.

The duration of your whiplash will depend on the speed you were travelling at, as well as the speed of the other vehicle. It also sometimes depends on luck – a passenger may suffer severe whiplash whereas the driver may not be as severely affected if they were able to brace themselves to some degree for the impact. It could be anything from hours to weeks. Few cases last longer, but chronic whiplash is defined in cases where people suffer for longer than a six-month period.

Does your whiplash deserve compensation?

This is a hard question to answer, as the outcome will be different in every single case. However, there is a good chance you may end up being awarded compensation if it can be proven another party was responsible for causing your injuries.
