Whiplash injuries are commonly the result of a collision on the roads. They are caused when the head is thrown forward and then back or to the side; the result being excessive strain on the tendons and ligaments of the neck.

You need to know about three criteria for claiming personal injury compensation:
- The claim needs to be made against a negligent third party
- Your accident must have taken place within three years of your claim
- Medical treatment must have been received at the time of the accident, or soon after
Who is the negligent third party?
This is often an individual who has caused the accident, but can also be a business or large organisation. In the case of a whiplash injury in Meltham, or anywhere else in the country, it could be another car driver failing to pay attention or who has been talking on their mobile phone whilst driving.
With accidents on public transport, a company is sometimes held at fault. Maybe the bus or coach has not been properly maintained, or unsafe rail tracks have caused an accident. We will be able to help you identify who was to blame for your accident if it is not clear, and negotiate on your behalf for your compensation.
