Shoreham-by-Sea is a port and town in West Sussex. The name Shoreham means settlement or homestead under a steep hill, or by the bank. It was certainly settled in late Saxon times, and there are archaeological remains which show that people were in the area from prehistoric times. In 2013 a flock of green plastic sheep was installed on a roundabout in Shoreham-by-Sea, but these were removed after motorists thought they were real and were concerned for their safety. They were reinstalled eventually with a life-size steel shepherd to reassure motorists that the sheep, which were advertising the South Downs National Park, were safe.
Making a whiplash injury claim in Shoreham-by-Sea?
Perhaps you were one of the concerned motorists who was distracted by that flock of green sheep on the roundabout and you stopped suddenly and were rear-ended by another distracted motorist; if this happened to you, perhaps you suffered a whiplash injury. You may have had your accident less than three years ago, and so perhaps you are eligible to make a whiplash injury claim in Shoreham-by-Sea.
Do I have grounds to make a claim?
If you want to make a personal injury compensation claim for that whiplash injury in Shoreham-by-Sea, or any other injury sustained in an accident, you need to be able to prove that you were in no way to blame for the accident. You also need to prove that another person was responsible for it. No doubt you will need an expert personal injury lawyer to help you do this, so why not call us at Accident Advice Helpline so that we can (probably) put you in touch with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers who will represent you on a no-win, no-fee basis?
You will also need to show, with your medical report, that you received medical treatment for your injury as soon as you could after the accident occurred.
How long do I have to make my claim?
If your accident happened in the UK, you would normally have three years from its date in which to make your claim. However, as this isn’t always the case (you might only have nine months to make a claim for your injuries) you should call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out exactly how long you have in which to file your potential personal injury compensation claim.
