The very mention of South Holland probably takes you across the Channel to that particular part of Holland. But did you know there is a district of this same name in England? It actually exists in Lincolnshire, taking up the far south-eastern corner of that particular county. It holds a population of about 90,000 people all told, very few of whom would ever have any reason to think about the prospect of South Holland compensation.
It can happen, of course – every year people all over the country find themselves recovering from injuries caused in accidents they did nothing to create. It can be very difficult to come to terms with something like this when it happens – after all, it comes out of nowhere and leaves you with injuries you were not expecting. It’s very different from taking risks yourself and causing yourself to be hurt in some way.
Accidents on the roads
Thankfully most road accidents are minor. They end up being bumps and shunts, that sort of thing. However, in some instances people can still be injured even when lower speeds are involved. Obviously, high-speed accidents can create dreadful outcomes and injuries for those involved. With that said, you don’t need to be travelling fast to be hurt when something goes wrong.
Things like whiplash can occur when a car comes to a sudden and unexpected stop. It’s impossible to keep your head from being flung forwards, even if you have a second or two to try and brace for the impact. You may think you’ve got away with no injuries – but your neck the next day could tell a different story.
