Whiplash Injury in Shaftesbury


Holidays in the West Country are popular, and if you look at the picturesque town of Shaftesbury, in Dorset, it is easy to see why. Stunning views of the scenery, and there is always plenty to do – it’s a perfect place to get away from it all!

But even injuries cannot be entirely avoided when you go on holiday, so it is still possible to sustain a whiplash injury in Shaftesbury. Whether you get it whilst out driving, as the result of a careless driver’s actions, or through a sporting accident, it’s important to know what to do.

Allow Accident Advice Helpline to give you a few hints and tips on staying safe and well whilst you’re on holiday!

Make it a fun time

Of course, you don’t want to be over-cautious on holiday. It’s a time for fun and games, relaxing and unwinding, and forgetting about all the everyday things.

But there are some things that are, well, just sensible to avoid. For example, avoid drinking too much and going for a walk in an unfamiliar place. You might slip and fall on a wet surface if it’s been raining, and get a whiplash injury in Shaftesbury.

Watch your driving

Make sure you have your head restraints properly adjusted on your car seats. The top of the restraint should be level with the top of your head. If you get a rear-end shunt from another driver, the restraint, if properly adjusted, will help to stop your head from jerking backwards upon the sudden impact.

You should also make sure that you exercise caution when you are going along unfamiliar roads, especially in the countryside. There are a lot of hedges and blind bends on country lanes, and someone might come out of a lane to your side, ramming into your car and causing you to sustain a whiplash injury in Shaftesbury.

Some accidents cannot be avoided

If an accident happens, though, then it happens. After all, there’s little you can do about someone else’s deliberate behaviour or negligence.

What you can do, though, if you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else, is claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline!
