How can you avoid whiplash? It can be difficult, but there is a way to minimise the risk of getting a whiplash injury in Shedfield from a car accident.
Adjust your head restraints properly
Almost certainly on the front seats (in most modern cars) and possibly on the back ones, too, there will be some adjustable attachments at the top. These are the head restraints.
Many people call them head rests, but that’s probably not an easy abbreviation for head restraints; after all, how many of us have rested our head on them in a traffic jam or even when driving on a long motorway trip?
Their primary function is, in fact, to restrain the head. If your car gets hit by something (such as another car), you could avoid getting a whiplash injury in Shedfield if your head restraints are correctly adjusted.
That means the top of the restraint will be level with the top of your head. That way, if there is any sudden impact, your head won’t jerk violently backwards.
It’s not always possible to avoid a whiplash injury in Shedfield
Whether it’s a car accident or another kind of accident, such as a slip and fall, you could get a whiplash injury anytime. All that’s needed is that sudden impact. You will probably be completely unprepared for it.
But if the incident that causes your whiplash is down to someone else’s deliberate actions or negligence, you could claim compensation.
Make your compensation claim
You should consider making your claim as soon as possible, because you have just three years from the date of your accident to begin. We all know how time flies, too, so don’t get caught out past the deadline – get on the phone now.
Accident Advice Helpline has a 24/7 hotline, so even if you’re reading this at 4am while you’re recovering from the pain, stiffness and tenderness in the neck, which whiplash sufferers know only too well, why not make that call?
