Whiplash is the term used to describe an injury that causes damage to the fragile ligaments and tendons in the neck. It is often sustained during car accidents, especially those that involve a rear shunt, and can cause lasting problems, with many people experiencing pain and discomfort for many months or years.

O’Sullivan & Co Solicitors in Ennis, we have over 35 year’s experience representing clients who bring personal injury cases of all types, and have dealt with thousands of cases relating to whiplash injuries in particular.

WHIPLASH: A CASE STUDY
Although whiplash is usually sustained following road traffic accidents, it may also be the result of other types of incident, including injuries resulting from air travel. Earlier this year, a British Airways passenger sued the airline after sustaining whiplash injuries when a bag belonging to another passenger fell onto his head. British Airways initially offered Mr. Herbert, who was travelling from London to Washington D.C., airmiles as a form of redress, but when this was rejected they finally made an offer of financial redress.
How to proceed with a case for whiplash injury:
To ensure your case for a whiplash injury is well prepared, you will need:
- Medical support. You should see your doctor as soon as possible after sustaining an injury of this kind. Bear in mind that symptoms may not develop for a considerable period of time after such an accident.
- A good solicitor. An experienced personal injury solicitor can ensure that you receive the redress commensurate with your injuries. Talk to your solicitor* as soon as possible and find out how you can proceed with your claim.
