Common Injuries

The most common injury as a result of a road traffic accident accident is Whiplash and Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD). Whiplash is caused by the sudden jolting of the neck backwards (hyperextension) and/or forwards (hyperflexion) during the accident. This can happen even at low speeds in car parks where a relatively light jolt to the body can cause soft tissue damage.

Although most of us may have heard of whiplash, it is often difficult to diagnose due to the fact that it can manifest itself in many different ways and even take days to develop.

The Symptoms of Whiplash

The following complaints are regularly associated with whiplash:

  • Tenderness of the neck muscles
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Reduced and painful neck movements
  • Headaches

Less common symptoms may include: dizziness, muscle spasms, blurred vision and vertigo.

If you think you might be suffering from whiplash as a result of a recent non-fault traffic accident?

Call us on 01204 544450 to speak to one of our experts today.


If you let the symptoms of WAD persist they could develop and you may still experience pain for more than a year. However if treated early, the musculoskeletal problems caused by whiplash can be effectively eased in a matter of weeks.

We can arrange treatment and rehabilitation for you as quickly as practically possible and pursue the party at fault for all the costs of your treatment alongside maximum appropriate compensation for your injuries, vehicle damage and other expenses incurred.
