Whiplash is a very common ailment that is often associated with car accidents. You can sustain whiplash in other areas of life such as sporting activities like rugby but whiplash injuries are more often than not associated with road traffic accidents. You can sustain a whiplash injury if you have been hit in the front the back or the side of your vehicle.
Accidents on the road do not have to be very severe at all for a whiplash injury to occur; even a low impact collision can cause whiplash to occur. Whiplash does tend to affect women more than men but this does not mean that men do not get whiplash; it is purely because the muscles in a man’s neck are usually stronger than those in a woman’s.
The outlook for a whiplash injury depends entirely on the nature of the injury sustained the extent of the damage to the ligaments and tendons in the neck and the force of the impact that caused the injury as well as the strength of the individual and their state of health. There is no generalised prognosis for whiplash sufferers.

Mr B was awarded over £1500.00 in personal injury compensation because he had sustained an injury like the one described above through the fault of a third party. Mr B was parked up in his vehicle when another driver drove straight into the side of his car.
As Mr B was completely blameless for the incident and his case qualified for an award we advised him to proceed with his case. We settled Mr B’s case in a timely manner and were very pleased with the result we achieved on his behalf. Mr B’s claim was made on a ?no win no fee? basis so he got to keep 100% of his compensation; our fees were paid by the third parties insurers.
