Formatted Abstract/Summary
This study aimed to identify distinctive trajectories for pain/ disability and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms following whiplash injury and to examine the effect of injury compensation claim lodgement on the trajectories.

Following whiplash injury, there are distinct pathways of recovery for pain/ disability and PTSD symptoms. Management of whiplash should consider the detrimental effect of compensation claim on psychological recovery and those with mild to moderate pain/disability levels. However claim lodgement has no significant influence on those following a more severe pain and disability trajectory.
