Finghín O’Driscoll Solicitors are Dublin whiplash claim solicitors.* Our team of Dublin whiplash solicitors* help clients receive the legal redress they deserve following an accident that resulted in a whiplash injury.
Whiplash is caused by a sudden jolt of the neck which results in damage to the ligaments.
Whiplash is extremely common after road traffic accidents as the force of a collision can cause the neck to rock back and forth causing the neck muscles to hyperextend.
This type of personal injury* can limit a person’s mobility and can prevent a person from carrying out their usual day to day activates.
Whiplash can also cause lasting pain which can undermine a person’s quality of life.
If you or a family member has suffered a whiplash injury and is considering pursuing a whiplash injury claim* in Dublin, we invite you to get in contact with us today.
