As a car accident claim expert I am familiar with most of the medical injuries inflicted on drivers.
In minor low velocity road traffic accidents (especially as a result of rear end shunts) the most common form of injury is a ‘whiplash related injury’.
This is because when you are involved in a road traffic accident you should be wearing a seatbelt and the impact causes your body to move and then be restricted in its movement due to the seatbelt.
The effect on your body is like the movement of a whip – hence the name.
Whiplash compensation claims are the most common type of road traffic compensation claim me and my team of expert road traffic accident solicitors deal with.
The areas of injury are the neck, shoulders and lower back (or any combination of these).
If you have pain in any of these areas due to a car crash then you are due personal injury compensation.
