Whiplash Injuries Claims
Whiplash is a common injury which is caused by road traffic accidents. In the event of a crash or bump, the driver or passengers head is thrown forward and then back quickly, putting strain on the delicate muscles, sinews and tendons of the neck. It can sometime be a few days before symptoms occur. The symptoms can vary from minor discomfort to serious and ongoing pain and loss of mobility.
Even if you were the passenger in the car which ‘caused’ the accident you may be able to make a claim. Your claim is directed at the driver’s insurer, not the driver.
