Children & Whiplash Injuries

Child Whiplash

Often a child sustains a whiplash injury when involved in a car accident. Despite excellent child car seats these days, a whiplash injury can be sustained during the collision just as it can for an adult. The neck is overstretched when the car is shunted forward, and it is this overstretching that leads to child whiplash.

What Should I Do If I Think My Child Has Whiplash?

With children it is even more important that if you think they have sustained an injury that they are checked by a doctor or the local casualty department as their spines are still developing. Symptoms of whiplash include neck ache and stiffness, dizziness or giddiness and general tiredness. If any of these whiplash symptoms are present seek early medical advice.

Will Whiplash Only Happen In High Speed Accidents?

No, many injuries are sustained in low impact collisions, so speed is not the important factor. Any speed that causes the neck to be overstretched can lead to a whiplash injury in your child. In fact frequently children can suffer quite serious injuries in low speed collisions.

Specialist Attention For Your Child

Our specialist solicitors know that they need to take extra care when dealing with your child. They will ensure that your child receives specialist medical attention and any treatment that is necessary to ensure that there are no long term problems for your child. The sooner they can start this process the much greater are the chances of your child making a full and complete recovery.
