Whiplash injury in Reay
If you are thinking the odds on getting a whiplash injury in this idyllic coastal location are low, you’d probably be right, but it is still possible. Any harsh sudden impact to a body, stopping it abruptly from some kind of movement, can potentially cause whiplash. This is an injury to the neck, when the ligaments are overstretched, causing pain, swelling and incapacity. It’s usually temporary, and with rest and pain killers, should clear up within a few weeks.
How would anyone get whiplash injury in Reay, playing golf? A fall off a moving golf buggy, or an unexpected trip or fall could cause it. It’s unlikely, and in fact, most victims of this condition suffer them as a result of road accidents. Other causes are falls from bikes and horses, or collisions or jolts in public transport.

How to prepare for your solicitor
You must be able to prove your case, so gather all your facts and figures, witness contact details and any evidence you may have. If you are a victim of a road traffic accident, your solicitor will want a copy of the police report. You should expect to have an independent medical assessment, but you may not have to go to court. Many cases don’t and are instead settled by phone or correspondence.
