Whiplash personal injury


Making a whiplash personal injury claim

Thousands of people each year are left with whiplash injuries after accidents that should have been avoided. Contrary to popular belief however, whiplash isn’t just caused by being involved in a road traffic accident. It is an injury that can also be sustained through slips, trips or falls. If you have been injured and want to make a whiplash personal injury claim, call Accident Advice Helpline today.

The victims of accidents who have sustained whiplash injuries can find that their injuries take weeks, months or longer to recover from. In some instances the effects of whiplash can be felt for years afterwards and some sufferers never truly make a full recovery. Contact Accident Advice Helpline today if you wish to make a whiplash personal injury claim.

What exactly is whiplash?

Whiplash is often associated with road traffic accidents but there is much more to it than that. You can suffer the effects of whiplash after being involved in a slip, trip or fall, or from receiving a blow to the head. Whiplash manifests itself between 6 to 12 hours after the accident and its effects can be felt for a long time after.

Whiplash is caused as a result of speed and gravity meeting. Whether in a collision, slip trip or fall, the injured party’s head and body are propelled forward only for the head to suddenly snap back when the jaw line is extended to its limit.

Common symptoms of whiplash are (but not limited to):

  • Headaches
  • Sore neck
  • Pain in the upper shoulders
  • Back pain
  • Jaw pain (often this feels like toothache)
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
