If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Cark in Cartmel as a result of being involved in an accident that was not your fault, contact Accident Advice Helpline (AAH).

You could find that any compensation pay-out your (100% no win no fee*) personal injury lawyer was able to secure on your behalf could be reduced if it could be proven that your conduct in anyway contributed to the severity of the whiplash injury in Cark in Cartmel you suffered.

Contributory negligence and a whiplash injury in Cark in Cartmel

Say that you sustained a whiplash injury and a few nasty knocks to the head on your pushbike in an accident that occurred on a dimly-lit road late at night. According to CCTV footage and phone records, the driver of the car was on the phone at the time that the accident occurred and was probably driving too close to the roadside.

However, when your case comes to court, the lawyers representing the insurer of the driver that was responsible for the incident argue that your injuries were made worse than they might have been due to the fact that you were not wearing a helmet. They also point out that you had no lights on your bike and were not wearing a fluorescent jacket.

If you were wearing the correct safety equipment, it is argued, the accident might have been avoided altogether or your injuries might not have been as bad as they were. Under these circumstances, a judge might reduce any whiplash injury in Cark in Cartmel compensation pay-out you might be entitled to.

It’s still worth a try
