Car accidents are not the only type of incidents that can result in an individual suffering a nasty whiplash injury in Balloch. Whiplash injuries can occur when there is damage caused to the soft tissue in the neck. These types of injuries typically come about when a person experiences some form of jolting movement that was unexpected. As such, it is perfectly possible for whiplash injuries to occur as a result of bicycle accidents.
If you suffer a whiplash injury in Balloch as a result of becoming involved in an accident that was not your fault while out on your pushbike, there will be a chance that you just might be able to take some form of personal injury action against the person or organisation that was responsible with the help and assistance of a decent 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitor.
Bikes and a whiplash injury in Balloch
Imagine that you had risen early on a Sunday morning and decided to go for a bike ride. You slip on your Lycra, don your protective helmet and set off, with thoughts of a whiplash injury in Balloch of no concern to you. All is going well and you are picking up a fair old speed when suddenly, a car owner opens his door right in your path. You swerve to avoid hitting it and are thrown from your bike as a consequence. You are shaken, but do not seem to have suffered from any injuries.
The man who opened the door is profusely apologetic, so you find it within yourself to forgive him and move on. Besides, you recognise the man as somebody your partner knows. You continue with your ride without further incident and return home. After a few hours, you start to notice a mild ache in your neck. You think nothing of it and crack on with preparing lunch. However, as the day continues you notice the ache getting worse. It also starts to feel quite tender. You decide that the best course of action would be to get the opinion of a trained medical professional. When you do, you are told that you appear to have sustained a whiplash injury.
It doesn’t take you long to work out that this must have occurred when you were thrown from your bike. If you could produce evidence that the man who opened his car door in front of you was responsible for your predicament, perhaps in the form of video footage if you’re one of these people who wears a camera on the top of their cycle helmet, you may be able to retain a good 100% no win no fee personal injury law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline, with a view to seeking compensation for your whiplash injury in Balloch.
