Whiplash Claims

A recent survey has found that 80% of all injury claims(not just car related) relate to whiplash claims. However researchers at Nottingham University are developing a scanner that can detect whether the delicate muscles in the neck have actually been damaged.

The scanner should be able to pick up the minute injuries caused to neck muscles in accidents. At the moment whiplash injuries are very hard to prove but if this new scanner can be proven to work it could cuts claims in half.

It was also noted that up to 50% of motorists could actually be increasing the chance of neck injury by not adjusting their headrests properly. If you are unsure how to adjust your headrest get the manual out and check.

Neck injuries can be extremely serious and we therefore advise anyone reading this to go and check their headrest is adjusted to the optimal position. Please remeber that the best position will change from person to person so if someone else regularly drives your car make sure that you re-adjust it if it's been moved.
