Whiplash is a popular term most commonly used for a neck related injury which has been sustained due to a sudden movement of the head or neck.
If the head is suddenly thrown forwards, backwards or sideways by any kind of accident, the ligaments and tendons in the neck may become damaged.
Compensation claims regarding whiplash injuries are most commonly associated with car accident claims however there are actually many other things which can cause this type of injury such as a slip, trip or fall which causes the head to be jerked suddenly in one direction.
The symptoms associated with Whiplash include neck pain, stiffness and reduced movement; headaches; pins and needles; dizziness; blurred vision and tiredness. If you are experiencing any such symptoms following an accident please contact Forster Dean and we will assist you in making a compensation claim against the party responsible.
