Whiplash Injury in Staines

Woman with whiplash

Staines is a town on the banks of the River Thames in Surrey. Since 2012, it is officially known as Staines-upon-Thames, although its residents and others simply refer to it as Staines. The Romans settled in Staines when they first arrived in Britain in 43 AD, and they were responsible for building the first bridge there to cross the River Thames. The Roman name for Staines was “ad Pontes” meaning at the bridges, which leads one to assume that there was more than one bridge in the area. The name Staines, is derived from the Old English for ‘the place at the stones’. One of the reasons given for adding “upon-Thames” to its name is said to be to avoid the town being linked to the fictional character of Ali G., created by Sacha Baron Cohen.
