    Whiplash in Southend-on-Sea

    Southend-on-Sea has many attractions for visitors, and has managed very successfully to shake off the image it had in the sixties when it was sometimes a battleground for the two rival groups of Mods and Rockers. Now it is a much more sedate place and attracts many different types of tourist. It has become a cultural centre with a wide variety of festivals including the Estuary Fringe Festival and The Village Green Festival, the Horror-on-Sea film festival to name just a few. There is also the Southend on Sea Airshow and Military Festival, so there really is something for everyone.

    Have you had whiplash in Southend-on-Sea?

    Whiplash in Southend-on-Sea could ruin your holiday, and you may not be able to claim personal injury compensation for it if you were responsible for the accident it resulted from. In order to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Southend on Sea, or anywhere else in the country, you must be able to prove that the accident you that you were involved in was not your fault. You also have to prove that another person was to blame for that accident.

    Many people erroneously believe that you can only get a whiplash injury in Southend on Sea, if you have been involved in a car accident, but it is possible to get one if you have received a blow to the head, or you had a sudden impact with a heavy object. A whiplash injury occurs when your head jolts violently in opposite directions and you damage the tendons and ligaments in your neck.

    How long do I have to make a claim?

    If you need to find out how long you have to file your particular personal injury compensation claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline. Different types of accident carry different limitation periods, so although it is usual for you to have three years from the date of an accident that happened in the British Isles that may not be the case for your claim. Sometimes you only have months rather than years in which to file a claim for injuries.

    You really shouldn’t delay calling us, as if the limitation period expires before you make your claim, you will have forfeited the right to make one. The sooner you begin the claims process the better, as it may take years rather than months to be awarded compensation (if your claim is successful).
