The most common injury from road traffic accidents is whiplash. This is not just from rear end shunts in cars, but from victims falling off cycles and motorbikes as well. You can sustain whiplash from anything that makes your head move from its normal movement zone. This damages the tendons and ligaments in your neck creating a whiplash injury.
It can be a very painful injury, as well as causing stiffness in the neck that can affect your mobility. The best cure is rest, and for a mild case a few weeks should be enough.

If you have a whiplash injury that was caused by someone else, you should be considering using Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers to make a no win no fee* in Cockermouth personal injury claim for compensation.
