Whiplash Compensation Claims

whiplash

Whiplash is the non-specific umbrella term often attributed to all sorts of neck and spinal injuries incurred in low and high impact accidents.

It is synonymous with car accidents and the associated compensation claims, with some people thinking it is little more than a case of mild neck pain.

However, whiplash, or rather the hyperextension and hyperflexion of high level bones in the neck and the spinal cord, can be extremely serious.
