    Whiplash injury in Cosby


    You may well have suffered some form of whiplash injury in Cosby in a road traffic accident that was not in any way, shape or form your fault for which you would like to pursue a compensation pay-out from the negligent party that caused it.

    But if you intend on taking some form of personal injury action, it will be important for you to realise that your conduct at the time of the incident in question could have quite a considerable bearing on the outcome of your case and the actual level of any compensation pay-out you were to eventually win.

    If a personal injury tribunal feels that your behaviour contributed to the severity of your injuries, it might very well decide to reduce any personal inquiry compensation pay-out to which you were entitled. This is a concept in personal injury law known as contributory negligence.

    Contributory negligence and a whiplash injury in Cosby

    Say you were injured after becoming involved in a road traffic accident. The incident may well have been caused by the driver of a vehicle you were not in, but any whiplash injury in Cosby you were to suffer could be made worse if you were not doing all that could be expected of you to keep safe. You might find that any compensation pay-out you were awarded would be cut if you were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of your accident, for instance.
