    Injury claim in Bolton


    Injury claim in Bolton

    In you need to make a personal injury claim in Bolton because of a whiplash injury, there are certain criteria your claim needs to fit:

    • Your whiplash injury must have been caused by someone else
    • You must have seen a medical professional with the injury
    • The accident that caused it must have taken place within the last three years

    If this is the situation you have found yourself in, you may be able to make a personal injury claim in Bolton for compensation.

    It is not only drivers who can make a personal injury claim in Bolton

    You do not have to be a driver to be able to claim for a whiplash injury. You could be a passenger in a car or a pedestrian that gets hit by a car and still sustain an injury.

    But the injury does not have to be anything to do with a car either; there are many causes of whiplash because it happens so easily.

    All it takes is a sudden knock or jolt to your head; this tears or stretches the ligaments and tendons in your neck and that is basically what a whiplash injury is. In fact if the injury was anywhere else in the body we would call it a sprain and, as whiplash is not a medical term, many doctors refer to it as a sprain in the neck.
