    Whiplash injury in Oban


    Oban is a popular location for those looking to go on holiday in Scotland as well, so its usual population of about 8,500 people can be trebled quite easily in the summer months. Few if any of those guests would ever think they might suffer a whiplash injury in Oban.

    Just imagine enjoying a wonderful Scottish holiday in this picturesque location, only to be involved in a collision with another car. Anyone can cause a car accident if they lose concentration for a moment, but when you’re the innocent party and you end up with injuries, it can be a real shock.

    What is whiplash?

    When a car comes to a sudden halt as the result of a collision, the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the neck get the brunt of the impact in many cases. You have no way of keeping your head in position, so it is flung forwards or sideways and this leads to an over extension of those parts of your neck.

    You may not even notice you have pain or stiffness immediately – some people don’t notice the symptoms until the following day. After that, they can become very uncomfortable and take some days or even weeks to heal. Severe whiplash may last for months in the most serious of cases.
