Key Words: Whiplash car accident and Solicitors and compensation payout
Whiplash car accident claims are common following a road crash between two or more vehicles. The majority of collision are between two motor vehicles. In this road crash claim example, two cars collided at a traffic light junction.
One car was stationary when the lights were showing red. The car behind failed to stop and struck the stationary car with some force. The occupants in the stationary car were shook up, and jolted as a result of the force of impact.
Both parties duly exchanged insurance and personal details and the occupants in the stationary car sought advice from whiplash claim solicitors.
Both were subsequently examined by a whiplash doctor who advised of the following whiplash injury:
