    Whiplash Injury in St Margaret’s Hope


    The Orkney Islands are a popular holiday destination, and of course, they are home to many people. St Margaret’s Hope is the third largest place in Orkney, in fact. With a population a little above 500, this is by no means as large as a lot of villages on the mainland – but there is always the potential for accidents to happen.

    If you get into an accident that involves sudden impact, you could suffer a whiplash injury in St Margaret’s Hope.

    How can you get a whiplash injury in St Margaret’s Hope?

    Sudden impact can be brought about in many different situations. The most common way of getting whiplash is in a car accident, of course; that’s the situation that most of us associate with a whiplash injury.

    But you could also get it through slipping and falling, or in a sporting accident. Boxing is an obviously risky sport where whiplash is concerned, because you are very likely to receive a blow to the head, but football or rugby might also put you at risk. So, too, might windsurfing, jet-skiing, or any other water sport!

    Be careful…

    This isn’t to say that you should be highly risk-averse, of course. You go through your life and don’t normally worry about suffering a whiplash injury in St Margaret’s Hope, and rightly so – the chances of getting such an injury don’t warrant excessive caution.

    But you need to be aware of your surroundings, and alert to potential problems. There are some preventative measures you can take, too – for example, ensuring the top of your head restraint is level with the top of your head.

    Sometimes, though, you cannot avoid an accident – certainly not if someone else causes one!
