Whiplash Claim Scotland
A whiplash claim in Scotland can be made with us and will be handled by solicitors who have expertise in whiplash compensation claims in Scotland.
A whiplash injury happens when the neck, shoulder or back muscles are suddenly stretched beyond their normal limits, this happens in a fraction of a second due to a sudden force being placed on the body throwing the neck and shoulders back and forward. Although a whiplash injury due to a car accident is the most common cause, there are other ways a whiplash injury can happen, for example in a slip, trip or fall.
A whiplash injury may not be felt initially as it can take a couple of days to fully come out.
Whiplash can last anything from a day or two to having a full impact on daily life for months or years depending on the severity of the injury.
