Whiplash claims more likely to be made by male drivers

According to a recent study, female drivers are the least expected group of motorists to make whiplash claims as they are more likely to have their head restraint in the correct position.

The study carried out by the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre Thatcham reported that 43% of women knew the correct position of their head restraint compared to 75% of male drivers who didn't know and were putting themselves at risk of car accident injuries.

A lab manager at Thatcham said, "The head restraint should be seen as every bit as important as the seat belt - yet people seem oblivious as to how to use it properly."

The latest figures could positively influence the number of people failing to adjust their head restraint and may even limit the amount of people contacting personal injury solicitors to make whiplash claims following road traffic accidents.
