Whiplash Injury Claims
If you have ever been sitting in a car or train and felt it brake suddenly, you will have noticed that your head jerks forwards, then backwards again. The opposite happens if your car is hit from the back by another vehicle. Even when the jolting is quite minor, the effect on the ligaments and tendons in the neck can be quite severe. The injury is known as whiplash and is probably the commonest of all injuries resulting from a car accident. Certainly, whiplash injury claims
are the most common of accident claims that are brought by innocent victims of car accidents every year.
Whiplash can be very painful and might take anything from a week to a year or more to go away, with the average time being about a month. Whiplash sufferers normally wear a protective collar while they are suffering pain. If you do have an accident and sustain any sort of injury and the accident has been caused by another road user you should not hesitate to seek a claim for compensation. People who submit whiplash injury claims usually find that they are resolved relatively quickly, as the fault usually lies with the car or other vehicle that has crashed into the car in front. The cause of whiplash is therefore usually quite straightforward.Lamb & Co have excellent personal injury solicitors who deal with whiplash claims regularly and have brought thousands of cases to successful resolution over the years.
