Queensway is a series of road intersections in Birmingham, a district in Bayswater, and a stop on the Metropolitan Line of the London Underground. “The Tube” as Brits affectionately call it, is a very safe way to travel, although it has had – rarely – some momentous accidents. It would be rare to suffer a whiplash injury on the Queensway underground environment, but we have to guard against having accidents. The worst was probably the Moorgate Tube Disaster, which occurred in 1975.
As a result of this incident, a fail-safe system – the Moorgate Protection – has been installed at dead ends in underground stations, which stops the train automatically if the brakes are not applied for any reason.
Whiplash injury in Queensway
Any sudden stop in a moving vehicle, train, car or plane, can put a passenger at risk of whiplash. When the body is still moving after the vehicle comes to a halt, the head is thrown forwards and backwards, causing the whiplash injury from strained neck tendons. The pain usually sets in after a few hours and can be intense and persistent. Symptoms are hard to diagnose. They don’t usually show up in X-rays or MRI scans. Should you have sustained a whiplash injury in Queensway and you think it was the fault of the transport operator, you may have a valid compensation claim, if you can prove liability.
