Whiplash is caused when the neck is suddenly thrown backwards then forwards. This action may happen when someone is thrown from their bike and can damage the joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves discs and tendons in the neck.
Symptoms of whiplash are typically noticed the next morning after an accident, and medical advice should be obtained as soon as possible.
Although the effects are not usually permanent, a whiplash injury can produce neck pain, headaches and dizziness, as well as shoulder and lower back pain for some time after the accident which can be very unpleasant.
If you have suffered a neck injury as an innocent victim in the last three years Vélo Law can establish if you are legally entitled to compensation for pain and suffering and other losses resulting from the accident.
