    Whiplash injury on the Isle of Bute

    If you’ve sustained a whiplash injury on the Isle of Bute within the last three years and it was someone else’s fault, you should consider making a claim for personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you to make your claim.

    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash is a commonly heard term in regards to personal injuries. There has been a lot in the press about it over the last decade, and many assumptions have been made. However, research has revealed more about the injury and the impact it has on people’s lives. If you’ve experienced a whiplash injury on the Isle of Bute, you’ll have first-hand experience of how painful it can be.

    One reason whiplash is talked about so often is that it is a common injury, which has meant a lot of personal injury claims have been made related to it. Many people feel that this is as a result of fraudulent claims, but researchers have recently shown that a combination of factors could be the cause.

    Whiplash injury on the Isle of Bute

    A whiplash injury on the Isle of Bute is a neck injury caused when the ligaments in the neck are stretched and damaged, usually on impact. This can occur in even minor, low-impact accidents, and can be exacerbated by later safety designs in cars, including headrests and seatbelts that apply force in the opposite direction as a means of keeping the person in their seat during a crash.

    Symptoms of whiplash include:
