A small village sitting on the River Conwy as it meets the Irish Sea, Deganwy is a place where sailors moor their boats and people live on the water’s edge. It is also a place that many people pass through on their way to and from the Victorian resort, Llandudno. The hill that sits in the middle of this small place was the original site of Conwy Castle but, with such a steep hill to climb, it made supplying the castle almost impossible. Thus, Edward I decided to move it to the lowland across the water, where it still sits majestically today. A busy place, accidents can and do happen here and thus, if you have suffered with whiplash from a car crash in Deganwy, you could be in the position to claim compensation.
How to make a claim after suffering whiplash from a car crash in Deganwy
The first and most obvious question to ask is whether your claim for compensation is eligible or not. And, with Accident Advice Helpline, there are two ways you can find out: you can call us or, if you prefer, log on to our website and use the 30-second test. You will see in seconds if you can claim for whiplash from a car crash in Deganwy.
How to use the 30-second test
The test consists of a series of questions to which you choose your answer from the drop down menus. When you press the submit button, you will know within half a minute or less, if your claim is eligible or not.
If you decide to continue with your claim, you will add far more detail with the Accident Advice helpline legal team assigned to your case. However, as a guide, there are three criteria that must be present in your case;
- The car crash in which you were hurt must not have been your fault – whiplash is a common and painful injury usually received after a rear impact. It causes the head to snap forwards and back quickly, resulting in strain to the muscles and ligaments that protect the top end of the spine. You may have been a driver of a vehicle in a rear-impact collision, or you could have been the passenger.
- You are making a claim within three years of the accident – people with a claim for personal injury compensation have three years within which to submit a claim, with the clock counting down from the time it can be assumed the accident was the cause of your injuries.
- Your injuries have been diagnosed and treated – most people after an accident consult their own doctor or take a trip to the local hospital. If not, we can help to arrange a medical assessment.
If you have suffered whiplash from a car crash in Deganwy, you could be entitled to claim compensation. Find out more, without obligation to continue with a claim, by calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or, from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
