Whiplash is caused when a person suffers from a sudden jolt to their head or body which damages the muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues in the neck. This sudden jolt can be sustained even when driving at a low speed.

Whiplash is probably the most common injury sustained as a result of a road traffic accident; however, whiplash can also be caused by a slip, trip or fall, sports injury or even an assault.

In most cases, whiplash injuries do not develop immediately after the accident. It may therefore be one or two days before you begin to feel the effects of an accident. The symptoms of a whiplash injury can include:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Pain in the shoulders and arms
  • Dizziness
