According to the latest census data, the village of Cwmafan is home to 5,603 permanent residents which actually make it closer to being a small town rather than a village. Because of this Cwmafan does actually see a higher level of vehicular traffic, more akin to that you would expect in a busier conurbation. The result is more road traffic accidents than you may expect, a portion of which generate a number of Cwmafan whiplash claims.
Your right to pursue Cwmafan whiplash claims
Under UK law, an individual is entitled to pursue Cwmafan whiplash claims if and when their whiplash injuries result from incidents which were definitively someone else’s fault. In actual fact, this sentiment works for any injury that innocent accident victims sustain. If someone else was to blame, you have a right to be compensated.
The reason that Cwmafan whiplash claims are so common is down to the nature of the injury. You don’t have to be involved in a high speed accident. In fact a lot of accidents involve one or more stationery vehicles. If another vehicle smashes into the back of a stationery one, even at speeds as low as 5mph, the unsuspecting people inside the stationery vehicle can sustain whiplash injuries.
There are some ground rules to any accident injury that must be met before you can consider claiming compensation. This applies to all types of injury claims – not just Cwmafan whiplash claims.
- The blame for the accident must lay with a third party
- Your injury must be medically diagnosed and treated
- The incident must have happened in the past 3-years
If all of these conditions can be met, and you have good evidence to back-up your potential claim (i.e. photographs, CCTV footage, or witnesses) you will stand a good chance of making a successful claim.
