Whiplash is an injury to the cervical spine caused by rapid movement of the head in one direction and then the other. A common scenario in which whiplash occurs is the rear-end collision between motor vehicles. The immediate result of the collision can be injury to the bone or soft-tissue, due to the over-stretching of the joints. The resulting symptoms may present as pain, joint stiffness, headaches, pins and needles in the upper limbs, often taking a few days to commence. In a minor number of cases the symptoms can persist, known as Whiplash Associated Disorders, such as migraines or increased anxiety. It is important to consult a medical professional when possible in order to receive advice and education to assist rehabilitation.

As whiplash is the most common ailment of a road accident, it is therefore unsurprisingly the most common type of injury claim. Laws and regulations surrounding claims for compensation for whiplash injuries vary from country to country, however the 'no win no fee' system used now in the UK has made it increasingly simpler to make these claims. However, this type of injury is often disregarded by many people and fails to be considered a ‘real’ injury, often dissuading people from making a claim for compensation. Yet, in reality, neck injuries can be a debilitating condition. 1 in 7 victims of car accidents who are injured with whiplash suffer significant pain for more than three years after the incident.

Moreover, it is imperative that the claim is submitted as soon as possible so that all evidence required is readily available. Seeking immediate medical advice is crucial as the medical records from a doctor are invaluable when it comes to whiplash accident compensation claims. Other evidence can include pictures, and eye-witness statements. All evidence is valuable as this will increase the likelihood of a successful claim. Furthermore it is important that the clarification of whether the victim is the driver or the passenger is obtained early on, as the latter is virtually guaranteed to be granted a successful claim, regardless of whether the driver is a relative or friend. Minor claims can be settled within months; however more severe cases can take a lot longer. The potential amount to be awarded can range from the provision of medical costs to the amount of £250,000, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
