    Whiplash injury in Odiham

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Odiham

    The village of Odiham has a regular population of around 4,400 people. This makes it quite a large village on the scale of things, since other villages can have populations numbering only a few dozen in the most extreme of cases. The village exists in the north-eastern part of Hampshire, and is within the Hart district. It is rare that anyone would end up with a whiplash injury in Odiham, but it is wise to know what this injury involves so you can recognise it if you should ever be hurt in a car accident.

    Many people will find themselves caught up in a car accident at some point in their lives. Fortunately, most are very minor and many people get away with no injuries at all. With that said, though, whiplash is one of the more common things people can find themselves coping with in some instances.

    Sudden movement

    The neck contains a number of soft tissues, and these are prone to being overstretched in situations where a sudden impact occurs. This is why whiplash can also occur during contact sports, just as it can in car accidents, or accidents involving other vehicles.

    The neck injury mentioned here is basically very similar to any other sprain, which is caused by the associated soft tissues being stretched beyond their typical range of motion. Suffice to say, this may well cause you some pain and discomfort. This may not happen immediately, but most people with whiplash will notice their neck feels stiff and uncomfortable the day after their accident happens.

    Is it really possible to be compensated for whiplash?

    We should point out that every case is different. The facts must be considered and assessed so a clear picture of what happened and who was to blame can be gleaned from the information provided.
