Road traffic accidents are the main cause of Whiplash injuries. Whiplash is a term that describes a neck injury caused by a sudden movement of the head forwards, backwards or sideways. After a road traffic accident, it can take a while (6 to 12 hrs) for the symptoms of Whiplash to develop.

Road traffic accidents often result in Whiplash because a sudden stopping force of a collision makes the head move violently. The vigorous movement of the head overstretches and damages the tendons and ligaments in the neck.

What are common symptoms of Whiplash?

  • neck pain and stiffness
  • tenderness over the neck muscles
  • reduced and painful neck movements
  • headaches

The long term effects of a Whiplash injury can make it difficult for you to carry out daily activities, enjoy your leisure time and at worst may result in an inability to work and can lead to further issues.

How to claim for Whiplash?

Our specialist Road Traffic Injury lawyers will intimate the details of your whiplash claim as quickly as possible after the accident. The details of the accident and injury will be sent to the insurance company who represents the person at fault.

Some motor insurers will often to try settle your injury claim directly with you and this can mean that you can receive less compensation than you should. If we represent you we will advise you appropriately should this happen.

We will ingather details of your losses, any documents that we need to prove your case and will contact witnesses as soon as possible.

How long do I have to claim after suffering Whiplash?

The time limit for settling a case is usually three years after the accident. However, in terms of the compulsory Scottish pre-action protocol your claim should be intimated as soon as possible.

If a child suffers whiplash the timescale will be three years following their 16th birthday.
