Have you heard of a place called Luxulyan before? It is far from a well-known location, but you will find it if you head into the middle of Cornwall, down near the south coast. Indeed, it is only a few short miles from St Austell. The village is also recognised as a civil parish, and it has a population that only reaches some 1,381 people. As is the case with many other villages, it can present you with a challenge if you want to find injury solicitors in Luxulyan, as the population means there are few specialised services nearby.
But this is one of those services no one ever wants to use. Few of us even think about it unless we find ourselves in a situation whereby we need to consider the idea of a claim. Injury solicitors deal with such claims regularly, and there are situations where they might assist you.
Could injury solicitors in Luxulyan help with whiplash claims?
All injury solicitors take on cases stemming from a variety of injuries caused by those who were negligent in what they were doing (or occasionally, failing to do). This includes dealing with whiplash cases where people received this injury after being struck by another vehicle. This injury is more likely to happen if your vehicle is hit from behind, even if this does not happen at a high speed. However, the greater the speed involved, the more chance there is of the injury becoming more serious.
Whiplash is an unusual injury in that many people don’t even notice they have it to start with. There might be some initial pain on impact, but it is often some hours later – and sometimes the following day – that they experience the typical symptoms associated with this injury. These include pain and an inability to move the neck through its normal range of motion. It is also common to have trouble sleeping, and to have headaches and nausea, too. If you suspect you might have developed whiplash from a road accident, do see your GP as soon as possible. This will ensure you can get an official diagnosis and to confirm nothing more serious has occurred.
