Macduff is a town in Aberdeenshire in Scotland. Its population is less than 4,000 strong, and it sits on the coast in Banff Bay in Banff and Buchan. Even though the population here is small, any occasion where a car accident happens has the potential to result in a whiplash injury in Macduff.
You’re no doubt familiar with the term whiplash, which is given to neck injuries caused through the sudden stopping of a car when in collision with something else, possibly another car. It might also happen if a car hits something stationary, such as another vehicle or even a wall.
Why isn’t whiplash obvious at the time of an accident?
Some injuries are immediately apparent when you’re in an accident. However, whiplash isn’t usually one of them. Your neck might hurt at the moment of impact, but quite often people don’t then feel anything until sometime afterwards.
As such, many people believe they’ve escaped being injured after being involved in a car accident. They might think they’ve been lucky because for the rest of that day, they don’t really feel any pain in their neck at all. However, it’s often on the following day that the symptoms of whiplash become apparent, with pain and stiffness starting to develop.
