Among the most commonly seen examples of personal injury claims are whiplash claims, for this is a very easy injury to sustain.

Negligence in Simple Terms
Negligence is simply a term that means ‘a lack of due care and attention’ and it may be difficult to prove in some whiplash claims cases. Each of us is expected to show a duty of care to those around us – professionally and personally – and not to do so is to be negligent in our actions.
Examples of Whiplash Claims
The most frequently seen whiplash claims are those where injury has been sustained in a road accident; whiplash, an injury to the spine caused by damage to the soft tissue in an impact, is among the most common ailments suffered in accidents in the UK. Another common place for accidents is in the home, and if a faulty appliance was at the centre of the injury it is a case of negligence. Many people are injured in the workplace, and it is the employer’s duty to makesure that risks are kept to an acceptable level.
