What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck injury caused by a sudden movement of the head. Ligaments and tendons in the neck are stretched or damaged as the head is unexpectedly thrown forwards, backwards or sideways.

Whiplash is the most common injury associated with road accidents, and is often caused when one vehicle is struck from behind by another. In this type of road accident, it's nearly always the driver of the rear car that's responsible for the accident, and it is the driver in front who may be able to make a claim for whiplash.

There are a number of other potential causes of whiplash. So, if you have been injured and it was someone else's fault, you might be able to claim.

Can I make a whiplash claim?

If you've been injured because of someone else's negligence, you may be eligible to claim whiplash compensation. Our advisors will often be able to tell you within minutes if you're entitled to compensation.

To be eligible to make a claim, you must have been to see a doctor about your injury, so if you think you're suffering from whiplash, it's important to get checked out as soon as possible. They'll also help you get the best possible treatment for your type of injury.

You can even claim if you were a passenger in a vehicle and suffered whiplash injuries, even if it was a family member driving. Remember, in this example your claim wouldn't be paid out by your relative, but by their insurance company. For more information, read our whiplash and passengers page.

How much compensation is awarded in whiplash claims?

As with any personal injury claim, the amount of compensation awarded will depend on the severity of the injury sustained, the losses you have incurred as a result of your injury and a range of other variables.

Whiplash affects different people in different ways - some people will experience neck pain and stiffness which lasts for days or weeks, while others suffer from ongoing neck and back pain, muscle spasms and a reduced range of movement in their neck.
