What is a Whiplash Injury?
Whiplash occurs when a person’s neck whips backward and forward very suddenly. This extends the muscles beyond their typical range of motion, causing them damage. It can take hours or even days for symptoms to appear. When they do, symptoms typically include:-
- Neck, shoulder and back pain
- Stiffness & soreness of the neck
- Headaches & Nausea
Whiplash is most common following a car accident, particularly rear-end collisions, but can also be caused by other accidents such as tripping or slipping. Scientific studies show whiplash can be sustained at speeds as low as 5 miles per hour.
Whiplash injuries can cause long-term pain. Usually symptoms arise within 24 hours of the incident, after which they gradually worsen over the following days. This discomfort can continue for months. In some instances, the symptoms become chronic and cause ongoing issues.
Not only are whiplash injuries painful, they can be so severe that your ability to drive, sleep, exercise and work are affected. This can have a serious impact on your life.
Whiplash Claims Experts
Those who sustain whiplash injuries can suffer lasting pain, and this can lead to psychological and financial damages, especially if your ability to work is hindered.
Given the potentially disruptive nature of whiplash, anyone who suffers whiplash through no fault of their own is entitled to compensation to reflect the injuries they have wrongfully endured. Whiplash claims typically arise as a result of a road traffic accident.
It can be difficult to know if you are entitled to make a whiplash claim. Generally speaking, if you developed the injury in an accident for which someone else was to blame (such as another driver) you can make a claim. You can also claim for whiplash if you were a passenger.
To find out for certain, you need to speak to one of our personal injury solicitors. At McKee O’Kane Solicitors we offer free initial enquiries, so you can get free legal advice about your potential whiplash claim.
How Much Compensation Will I Get?

- Pain and suffering
- Your past financial losses (if any)
- Your future financial losses (if any)
How Long Will a Whiplash Claim Take?
