A resident of Newtongrange who tipped out a Goth after one too many would only have himself to blame if he crashed into a lamppost, blacked out, and later suffered a whiplash injury in Newtongrange. However, if he was stone cold sober and hit by a vehicle which caused his injuries, then he might have a case to make a claim.
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
Whiplash injury refers to damage to the neck tendons. If the head is violently lurched backwards and then forwards, the tendons are strained beyond their normal range, hence the acute pain which sets in a few hours later.
